Can I install a Tecrostar mezzanine outdoors?
Tecrostar products can be installed outdoors (exposed to the elements), provided that a series of special measures are taken during installation and that you carry out regular maintenance in order to ensure that the materials are in good condition. The recommendations are the following:
- The Tecrostar mezzanine flooring comprises moisture-resistant plywood structural panels. However, it is recommendable for the customer to apply waterproofing paint to the floor and exposed edges; this will be particularly effective for preventing water from penetrating and getting into the tongue and groove joints of the panels and affecting the edges.
- It is also recommendable to install the mezzanine with a slight slope (approximately 2%) to make it easier for water to run off and prevent it from accumulating. This incline can be achieved by installing levelling plates under the highest columns of the structure.
- Similarly, all wooden components (wooden steps, cleats, etc.) should be treated with some type of water-resistant paint or varnish to prevent dampness from penetrating and cracking the material, thereby resulting in the loss of its mechanical and aesthetic features.
- In addition, wooden components should undergo regular maintenance, the surface protection applied (varnish or paint) being checked to see it has not deteriorated and reapplying when necessary.
- The steel components are coated with paints suitable for outdoor use but as after one or two years the paint will probably need to be touched up in small areas like edges and corners that could show signs of rusting and loss of shine. It is recommendable to polish these areas to remove any rust and then apply the paint.
- If the mezzanine is going to be installed outdoors near the sea, the maintenance recommendations should be carried out more regularly, due to the greater corrosive power caused by the presence of salt and humidity.
- The aluminium handrail of the railings does not require special maintenance, as all of them undergo surface treatments to guarantee their performance outdoors (anodized silver, lacquered in black or with wood effect).
- The structure and its corresponding floor anchors and braces are designed to withstand the actions of the wind. DO NOT CLOSE OFF THE SIDES, as this results in greater horizontal forces not considered in the calculation.
Can the mezzanine be installed without columns or removing a column? Attached to walls
No, our mezzanines are sold with columns by default. We cannot guarantee the resistance of walls or corbels and the customer will be responsible if the product is modified in these cases.
Can I install it in a room with trapezoidal or irregular walls?
Yes, you can, because the structure does not need to be in total contact with the wall.
You can adjust the structural floor, working around architectural barriers or irregular surfaces.
When the walls are irregular or when you want to work around a fixed object, the decking can be finished off against the wall

Can it be installed as an extension to an existing mezzanine?
Yes. This is quite common and the results are very good. The telescopic system of the columns enables the height to be adjusted every 12 cm, so in the worst case scenario you will have a 6cm difference.
Can the columns be installed moved to the corners?
Yes. The columns can be moved to the corners up to ¼ of the total length of the structure. This feature allows you to work around the walls, switches or furniture you have on site without compromising safety.
What is the delivery time?
For products in stock (white and black for S, M and L ranges), the delivery time will be approximately 5 working days from placing the order. Once the product has left our facilities, the normal transport time is between 7 and 10 working days. The transport time varies greatly and is difficult to control due to many factors: Place of delivery, local holidays, customs, etc.
If we cannot meet this delivery time, we will contact you.
How is the product shipped and received?
Mezzanines are shipped in boxes by an external company in a lorry with a tail lift that enables the box to be unloaded to the ground (at street level at the customer’s address).
How do I get the product up to my home?
Don't be alarmed by the total weight of the product, the components are light and manageable, so you can move them easily and take them up in the lift. The heaviest components are the primary beams from the L range (39 kg), the rest of the ranges are considerably lighter (12kg). The floor panels are very light and fit in any lift. No component is more than 2.4m long and therefore, fits in most lifts.
Is the XL range delivered differently?
There is a slight difference with the rest of the ranges. In order to deliver mezzanines XL, the delivery location should be accessible to a truck/long trailer (maximum mass admitted up to 36t). If there are access restrictions for this kind of trucks, there could be additional costs due to the necessity of transferring the merchandise to a smaller vehicle. Should you believe it exists any kind of restriction, please contact us.
The customer should take care of the merchandise unloading process. That unloading should be made from the lateral sides of the truck (this kind of truck do not have back liftgate).
We deliver the product packed with pallets at the bottom, so its unloading should be made preferably with a forklift.
Characteristics of the materials
Tecrostar products are manufactured with the most suitable materials for the proposed technical solutions, combining wood, steel and top quality aluminium.
- The steels used for beams, columns and other components are fit for structural uses with a high yield strength (S235, S275 or S3555, as required). The pieces are manufactured using maximum precision laser cutting, folding and pressing processes. Next a powder coating is applied and they are baked in the oven, offering maximum adhesion and an outstanding finish.
- Structure hardware grade 8.8
- Anodized aluminium apt for outdoor use
- The wood panels used for the mezzanine flooring can be made of European radiata pine plywood or high density structural chipboard. All the boards are tongue and groove on all four sides to prevent faults and unevenness at the joints of the modules.
- Other wooden components, such as the steps and parts of the handrails, are made from top quality beech.
TECRO has earned certification from the AEM, the federation of Spanish materials handling. We have also received a Gold Medal Award of Merit from the INPEX (Invention and New Product Exposition), the top award for innovation at the largest Invention Exposition in the USA.
