Cubic Designs Mezzanines and Work Platforms are all held together using specialized moment connections. These bolted connections use high-strength bolts and high strength steel.
Since each mezzanine system is unique, the connections are customized on a project-by-project basis dependent on the seismic zone where the system will be installed as well as other project parameters such as height and loading demand.
Requirements for each seismic zone are met by varying the number and size of bolts as well as the thickness of the framing members. A team of in-house professional engineers work to ensure that each connection can handle all anticipated loads, without “over-engineering” and including unnecessary amounts of steel.
