Hello,

if I have a mezzanine rated 390 kg/m2 , what does that mean? Would it mean for every “square” (area that it one meter on each side) it can hold 390kg?
So I would need to find out the entire area of the mezzanine to find how much it can hold?

thanks!

You ask:

"...I would need to find out the entire area of the mezzanine to find how much it can hold?"

In general - yes

However, to get a more precise and reliable answer (for real structural problems), you should talk to a licensed PE in your area.

PE? Private Eye?
