Engineered wood flooring, a fit for self-storage buildings, costs less than concrete
CINCINNATI - Cornerstone Specialty Wood Products says its lines of ResinDek panels are also a good fit for flooring in self-storage applications.  Cornerstone is exhibiting the applications at the Inside Self-Storage Expo in Las Vegas this week.
Cornerstone Specialty Wood Products says its ResinDek floor panels can provide the strength associated with concrete, yet offer savings of tens of thousands of dollars on some projects.
ResinDek engineered wood flooring panels are frequently used for flooring on elevated platforms instead of concrete, which saves at least 30 lbs. per square foot of dead load on the structure, which equals 1,500,000 lbs. on a 50,000 sq.ft. elevated platform. In a storage, the more compact ResinDeck opens up space to allow for additional storage capacity, opening  monthly revenue for self-storage facilities. It is quite common to save $4 to $5 per square foot when using ResinDek instead of concrete on elevated self-storage platforms, the company says.
ResinDek floor panels have proven structural integrity and support live and dead pallet jack loads from 2,000 – 8,000 lbs and are available in sizes up to 4' x 10'. Headlining the show will be the ResinDek LD mezzanine floor panel. The ResinDek LD flooring panel is custom manufactured and engineered for a 2,000 lbs pallet jack capacity.
With seven different grades of ResinDek flooring panels, Cornerstone Specialty Wood Products, LLC says it has earned a reputation for high quality products that are reliable, durable and competitively priced. All ResinDek panels can contribute towards earning LEED credits and when required are available with FSC certification.
