How to understand the different types of Mezzanine Floors.

There are many different types of mezzanine floors that can improve the way your business works. Mezzanine floors are a great way to increase the floor area of your office or industrial workspace, such as a warehouse. Mezzanines are flexible steel structures that can be designed to fit your building. Here at Advantage, we specialise in the design, supply, and installation of different types of mezzanine floors and associated works across the UK.

So, what are the different types of mezzanine floors and how do they benefit a business?

The different types of mezzanine floors

Office mezzanine floors

Offices are ever-evolving and must have adequate space to house employees comfortably. If you are looking for business growth, a different type of mezzanine would suit. Often as the workforce increases as well as the equipment needed, a specific office mezzanine floor to home your workforce and other facilities such as break-out rooms, meeting rooms, toilets or kitchens is best.

Different types of mezzanines can be a perfect solution for adding space in a cost-effective and efficient manner compared to traditional building methods or relocating. For example, an office mezzanine can release new life into an office location.

An office mezzanine floor can also be one of many transformative ways to enhance your workspace. It can be part of an office fitout or upgrade, which is another great way to create the desirable and functional space you require.

Office mezzanines can be quickly assembled and used for additional space, including new meeting rooms, breakout rooms, cafeterias, and extra storage. Advantage can supply your bespoke office mezzanine floor designed to meet the business’s needs and budget.

Production mezzanine floors

If your business is in the industrial sector, you must always keep up with busy manufacturing or production lines and have efficient time management. To help manage busy manufacturing and production functions, a slightly different type of mezzanine floor would work for you. A production mezzanine floor offers the ability to increase workspace, add machines, increase dispatch or packaging areas and more.

Advantage works closely with our customers to understand their needs and ambitions, not only to create a space that addresses their current plans but also to help with future proofing for the greater vision.

Production mezzanine floors, depending on their size and purpose, will need to be fire-rated and come equipped with all necessary safety features. All mezzanines need are subject to building control and should be signed off accordingly. A turnkey supplier such as ourselves will also provide heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC), electrics, plumbing or any other associated works required. Delivering your project with maximum efficiency and minimum disruption to your business.

Storage mezzanine floors

Increasing storage space has never been easier with a bespoke mezzanine floor from Advantage. A storage mezzanine can be used across a wide range of industries to increase the space available for stock, equipment, or materials.

If you are struggling for storage space due to business growth, or in an attempt to combat import timelines and logistics, then a storage mezzanine floor can help solve a lot of these problems.

A storage mezzanine floor can store equipment such as:

  • Products waiting for sale and despatch
  • Materials for manufacturing
  • Workshop equipment
  • Lifting equipment
  • Site safety equipment – such as PPE

Storage mezzanine floors are made to measure, allowing you to create an additional floor area for efficient storage and management equipment.

Warehouse mezzanine floors

Is your warehouse struggling to find additional space for your inventory and supplies? Are you looking to future-proof your warehouse space? Do you want to add more space for your employees to expand their teams or make more inspiring or desirable offices? Then a warehouse mezzanine floor could be the ideal solution for your business. There is also the option to add multi-tier mezzanine floors in a warehouse with enough head height, increasing that usable space even more.

If you need storage solutions on your mezzanine such as a pallet racking system or shelving, these can be installed safely on the preferred floor or section of the building.
