The features you seek can all be found in SureSTEP: safety (seismic tested) customization and innovation.
SureSTEP: Western Pacific’s SureSTEP products allow you to take a giant step toward its biggest feature: financial savings. With stairs meeting all IBC codes, custom design kickplate and flashing which saves labor and materials, and a variety of gates, you are able to move your storage needs “UP”. You need not look for new land, a new building or any of the challenges that come with moving your business. Now you can “stay put” and optimize the VERTICAL AIR space you have (and are paying for) while working with the engineering team that thoroughly understands seismic and code compliance in every state of the nation.
Versatile -SureSTEP platforms, gates and rails work with all of WPSS’ shelving brands: Deluxe, RiveTier®, and Pacific.
High-Performance Capacity – SureSTEP platforms, stairs, gates and rails are designed to stand up under rigorous demands, interfacing with WPSS multi-level pick modules and pallet rack pick modules.
Saves Space – SureSTEP platforms, gates and rails are engineered by a team renowned for designing solutions to allow you to move up instead of out increasing access to greater inventory within the same footprint.
Saves Money – SureSTEP platforms, gates and rails enable you to safely build up in your current space versus having to build out. Western Pacific Storage Solutions cost much less than new construction.
Installation Timeline of a SureSTEP Work Platform
Diagram shows the average build time of a 1500 sq. ft. standard, fully equipped freestanding work platform (mezzanine) built by a 4-man crew.
Greater load bearing capacities assured.
The rigid frame construction of an SureSTEP work platform (mezzanine) features stronger connections that allow for greater spans and more space planning flexibility than others.
All of the depreciation benefits of a piece of equipment.
The SureSTEP work platform (mezzanine) system gives you the benefits associated with industrial equipment while increasing your usable space, but affording you the advantages of not being attached to the existing building or other structure.
Exceeds most required manufacturing standards.
By meeting IBC, OSHA, SBCC and Seismic Zone 4 regulatory requirements as well as holding an L.A. City Fabricators License, our quality is universally recognized. Code compliance is assured by our full spectrum of permit services, engineering calcs and drawings.
Designed for easy installation, dismantle and relocation.
The SureSTEP work platform (mezzanine) features all bolted connections that can be assembled with ordinary hand tools. Unlike hard construction, your investment can move with you or offered for resale.
Greater design flexibility.
The SureSTEP work platform (mezzanine) system features wider spans that reduce the number of columns. This creates more space and provides for less obstruction.
Certainly the hallmark of every SureSTEP work platform (mezzanine) is its clean, unique, integrated finish that brightens the work space, resists corrosion, scratches and reflects light.
When considering the SureSTEP work platform (mezzanine), remember that our formed components can be engineered (standard is 125 psi and above) to meet your requirements (Cold form 50 KSI and columns 36 KSI). All of this, plus the benefit of weighing in at as much as a third less than conventional structural steel (channel beams are shown in picture to right). Higher strength and lower weight provides considerable savings in both shipping and installation.

Powder Coat Finishes
Powder coating is an advanced method of applying a protective finish to your work platform (mezzanine). The charged powder particles adhere to the electrically grounded surfaces until heated and fused into a smooth coating in a curing oven. The result is a smooth, uniform, durable, high-quality, attractive finish.
Galvanized is standard finish. Color is optional.
Types of Work Platforms (Mezzanines)
Freestanding work platform (mezzanine) provide optimum usable space above and below and are supported by framing members connected to the primary floor by columns alone. We use lightweight, high tensile steel in coil form, not the hot-rolled I-beam steel in pre-established lengths that others use. In fact, our product is 1/3 less steel by weight, yet it has been proven to be 38% stronger.
Rack- or shelving-supported work platforms (mezzanines) use inherent members to withstand loads placed on the upstairs level. Space below is limited to racks or shelving. This type of work platform (mezzanine) simply transfers the floor level space to the upstairs area and features open spans up to 30′ in either direction.
Freestanding work platform (mezzanines) utilize pre-configured components to provide the standard 125 psf uniform loading capacity platform.
