Custom-made mezzanine floors

Profielnorm supplies more dan 2,000 new mezzanine floors every year. To give you some examples, you will find Profielnorm case studies here. These mezzanine floors are built and delivered entirely based on the customer’s specification.


3 different projects, 1 mezzanine flooring solution

Quick facts:
  • Mezzanine surfaces: 5,235 m2 / 5,799 m2 / 9,265 m2
  • 300 kg/m2 (secondary beams are designed for 500 kg/m2)
  • Up to >9 metre
  • 2 mezzanine levels

The challenge:

These three customers, in the fashion logistics and general third-party logistics, faced the same challenge. All these projects were on greenfield, and the customers emphasised on a mezzanine flooring project with big spans, because of the huge advantages in daily business.

Our solution:

In consultation with the customer and their respective consultants we came up with a span in main beam direction of over 11 meters. Spans in secondary beam direction were up to six metres. This spans and loads have some severe impact on the floor slab.

Next to this, we came with another intelligent solution: the way how we integrated the sprinkler system in the mezzanine construction. Typical solution for sprinkler systems is to connect it under the steel structure. This has some advantages in terms of installation time and complexity. On the other hand, it causes loss of free height under the mezzanine, and more impact in case of a colliding forklift. We found together with the customer and sprinkler supplier a solution to put the pipes through our main beam structure, instead of underneath. This required a special design of our punching pattern in our profiles and a different sequence in production. Altogether we implemented a totally sufficient solution, with no impact on free height and a more secure solution in terms of a possible collision with forklifts.

Massive column loads integration


Let’s call our “party to go” to integrate this massive column loads into the building design. Three different companies with different projects. We are proud of the realisation of these three mezzanine floors.

How to support customers with a unique mezzanine floor solution



For these three customers, of which two are active in fashion logistics, and the other one in general third-party logistics we faced the same challenge. All projects were on a greenfield, and all the stakeholders emphasised on a mezzanine with big spans. This has some huge advantages in daily business.

In consultation with the customer and their respective consultants we came up with a span in main beam direction of over 11 metres. Spans in other directions were up to six metres. This spans and loads have some severe impact on the floor slab. By being part of the initial floor slab engineering we could come up with a solution which could carry the loads up to 60 tons per column.

Another intelligent solution is the way how we integrated the sprinkler system in the mezzanine construction. A typical solution is to connect the sprinkler system underneath the secondary beams.

Here we used the punching pattern in the main beams to get the pipes through our mezzanine system. In our engineering stage all different main beams have been put in a similar line to get a free flow of functional holes. This required detailed machine engineering to get it sorted.

A typical bracing solution in mezzanine flooring systems is with cross bracings. To maintain the unique spans of 11 metre we engineered a portalised solution which gives the customer free access in the 11-metre direction, without any blocking element.
