We were contacted by UPS. Their buildings had no safe and efficient way for ground access. Smart Space Mezzanines and Structures designed heavy duty steel ramps. The ramps allow fork trucks, carts and other equipment to get from the building floor to the ground floor; a 50” elevation change.

UPS contracted Smart Space at the following locations:

3083 Charleston Hwy
West Columbia, SC. 29172
4150 Azalea Drive
Charleston, SC. 29405
250 Belle Hill Road
Elkton, MD. 21921

The alternative to the Smart Space ramp was to install concrete ramps. The advantages to our design are:

• Installation time: in just one day onsite the Smart Space Ramp can be used vs. a 60-90 days for a concrete ramp.
• Flexibility: the Smart Space Ramp can be moved in a matter of hours. The concrete ramp can’t.
• Maintenance: we use open bar grating on the majority of the deck surface. This allows water, snow, dirt and debris to fall through to the ground. A concrete ramp collects everything.

The Smart Space Ramp design: structural steel I-beams and channels, 19W4 serrated 2” x 1/4” bar grating.
