The Stornoway Fishermen’s Co-operative on the Isle of Lewis has installed a Revlok mezzanine to increase the building’s floor area by 25 per cent.
The Co-operative operates as fish selling agents, ship chandlers, ice suppliers and fish retailers. Diversification of the range of products sold in the ship chandlery shop created a need for more storage space.
Revlok is a part of Rochdale company Doity Engineering. The components were transported by road from Doity’s Lancashire factory and shipped over to the Isle of Lewis by ferry. A team of fitters followed a few days later who completed the project in just two-and-a-half days.
The platform measures 11.5m x 7.8m and was tailor-made with a cut-out in the platform to incorporate a conveyor which the staff use to move boxes and other items between the shop floor and mezzanine level.
