ResinDek® MAX carries rolling loads up to 8,000 lbs!
Installation of Corrugated B Deck in Client’s Cold Storage Warehouse
Client increases their cold storage warehouse distribution space with ResinDek® MAX mezzanine flooring panels.
A German-based chain of discount supermarkets with worldwide operations. From its German origins in the 1930’s, the company has grown to more than 9,000 stores in different parts of Europe, including 580 retail stores in the UK.
To properly service these stores, high efficiency warehouse distribution centers are required within a short distance. A recent rapid growth has required an elevated platform to be constructed within the existing chiller portion of the warehouse. With speed, economy and a warrantable solution high on the list, they decided to use ResinDek® MAX for the solution.
The mezzanine had to store large heavy pallets of dairy products that had to be moved about with an electric pallet truck. The combined live and dead load of 7,275 lbs narrowed the decking choices to three:
- Concrete, which was expensive and impractical with the very cool temperatures in the chiller at 37O F. and working around existing structures.
- 1.5" Chipboard with a steel overlay was less expensive, but did not come with a warranty.
- ResinDek® Max
ResinDek® MAX was chosen because of its economical solution and its exclusive warranty. "Our biggest initial concern was timing", said the Procurement Manager. "We had our pre-construction meeting in late August, and needed to have the structure operational by early December. There were 7 different trades that had to work around our existing operations in a tight space. Cornerstone Specialty Wood Products, LLC® came to the initial meeting, and found a way to get the project delivered on time.".
"Cornerstone Specialty Wood Products, LLC® provided excellent installation support for this mezzanine. They were able to deliver the ResinDek® MAX and B Deck all the way from the United States to our job site in Lutterworth within 6 weeks after the order was placed. When we were ready for assembly, Cornerstone Specialty Wood Products, LLC® provided on-site support for 2-1/2 days. During the time of order processing, they ran a simulated load test to verify that our installation could be warranted for the exact beam spacing, load and beam type that we were planning to use. After the completion of the project, Cornerstone Specialty Wood Products, LLC® sent two representatives to meet with us and the end user to assist with minor repairs and to provide advice regarding cleaning and maintenance of the ResinDek MAX. The service and support that we received on this project were exceptional.".
