Structural steel mezzanines allow for a much greater column
spacing than any other mezzanine system. Electrical
conduit, water pipes etc. can be easily run through open web bar
joists. Open web bar joist give a much more "open feel"
than standard beams, giving the illusion of more clear height.
Structural I-beams can be used to minimize the "deck profile" of
Structural steel mezzanines are much heavier than most other
systems so will have a higher dead load and a higher floor load.
The increased weight will also increase freight cost from
factory. Structural steel has a rougher finish than any
other mezzanine material.
