Cost Savings & Speed of Construction

An independent cost comparison study published by Rescorla Engineering found that an elevated platform with ResinDek flooring was up to 34% less expensive than the concrete alternatives. In fact, it is quite common to save up to $5/sqft* or more with tax benefits when using ResinDek instead of concrete. How?

Less Weight + Less Footings + Less Steel + Less Time = Real Savings

Low Maintenance, Flat and Level Surface

* Actual savings may vary based on project scope and location. Tax benefits are based upon estimates and the ability to categorize the mezzanine as equipment rather than a part of the building structure. Consult local building codes and tax advisor before using any information provided.

Ergonomic Flooring Solution

ResinDek flooring provides added benefits of increased worker comfort and decreases the risk of work injuries and insurance claims. Research conducted by The Ohio State University's Institute for Ergonomics found that an elevated platform with concrete increased tibial shock by 7.8% compared to a floor with ResinDek. Bar grate increased tibial shock 10.6% relative to a work platform with ResinDek flooring.

ResinDek Flooring is Envionmentally Friendly

Research conducted by Coldstream Consulting found that installing a 50,000 square foot mezzanine with ResinDek composite engineered wood panels is the equivalent to taking 56 non-electric cars off the road for a period of one year, thus saving consumed energy and reducing pollution, while generating 67% less smog than concrete. Additionally, ResinDek composite engineered wood flooring produces 50% less hydrogen ions than concrete.
