Mitsubishi Electric Europe
Bespoke Mezzanine Floor & Heavy Duty Industrial Racking Solution
T2 Storage Solutions were approached by Mitsubishi Electric Europe, a leading worldwide manufacturer of electrical and electronic products, with the purpose of restructuring and optimising their new warehouse space.
We jumped at the challenge, promptly visiting site to complete a site survey before providing professional advice and guidance which gave Mitsubishi Electric Europe the confidence that T2 Storage Solutions could meet their expectations.
Our professional hands on approach to the project alongside our technical experience, our design drawings and competitive pricing helped win us the project, allowing us to finalise a schedule of works and get hands on.
“The preliminaries from Proici (T2 Storage Solutions) back office were accurate and prompt which was very reassuring when progressing what we consider to be a very unusual project for us. It was a pleasure to work with Nick Bartello who was very personable and consistently provided strong project management to ensure our business remained operational throughout the programme… He demonstrated very sound product knowledge, especially at the formative stages which ensured the end result provided exactly what we needed. Inevitable minor issues that cropped up during the work were dealt with promptly by Nick and without impact upon us. The extensive install was delivered on time and within budget. We look forward to working with Nick and the Proici team again.“

Mezzanine Floor – Storage Use:
Our brief required the supply and installation of a new structural steel storage use Mezzanine Floor with a net footprint of 388m2, a 5kN/m2 (500Kg/m2) load limit including 2 twin flight staircases for ease of access.
The mezzanine floor incorporated 2 bespoke fabricated “Up & Over” Safety Pallet Gates to suit a maximum pallet size of 1500x1500x1800mm. The Structure of the mezzanine floor has been designed to allow for a second tier without the need for additional changes.
A key element in the design of the mezzanine floor was to strategically place the supporting steel columns and baseplates directly above the exact locations of the pile foundation pads which support the concrete floor slab and allowed us to distribute the point loads evenly throughout these locations.
Heavy Duty Cantilever Racking:
Mitsubishi Electric Europe’s heavy load demands required the design and install of a Heavy Duty Cantilever Racking solution with total length of 56m at 7000mm high. Each system included 4 adjustable bolted arms – 1,500mm in length with UDL of 900Kg’s over 2 arms with the base working as an additional storage platform.
Heavy duty steel mesh decking was ordered and installed specifically to suit Mitsubishi Electric Europe’s heavy storage demand.
Energy Efficient LED Lighting:
High Powered Energy Efficient HACEL LED high bay ECA compliant lights were installed into the 2 units, spanning the entire warehouse space. The underside of the mezzanine floor was supplied with quality surface fitted LED batten lighting including Emergency lighting to comply with health and safety regulations.
External Steel Mesh Security Fence:
To secure Mitsubishi Electric Europe’s external yard space T2 Storage Solutions supplied and installed 42 linear metre of Steel Mesh Security Fencing including a double leaf swing gate to match the current mesh steel fencing.
