Our blog today investigated the benefits of mezzanine flooring. We will provide a clear definition, how mezzanine floors work and how they add value to businesses.
What is a Mezzanine Floor?
Located between the main floors of a building, a mezzanine extends from one side but does not meet the other. Because it doesn’t stretch the entirety of the building area it is not considered a main floor. A mezzanine usually shares the same ceiling as the floor below.
Now we have described this specific floor type, let’s take a look at some of the advantages.
Increase Floor Space
The addition of mezzanine flooring means a company has the ability to create extra space without going down the extension route. The latter may require planning permission and can be a lengthy process. When a company requires space quickly and does not wish to move premises, mezzanine floors are straightforward and cost effective solutions.
Ideal for Flexibility
An entire array of industries benefit from mezzanine floors. Using warehouses as an example, the needs of each space are unique. This style of flooring offers bespoke designs suitable to individual needs. Warehouses are given flexibility to ensure the creation of additional space.
The inclusion of an extra floor gives companies more space. Larger capacity is likely to decrease any clutter previously building up. A mezzanine installation in this instance increases efficiency due to the new space. Health and Safety gains a huge tick with accident risks lowered. Employees have the ability to go about daily tasks without disruption and in a more timely fashion.
Long Term Solution
We’ve briefly mentioned how mezzanines work well in warehouses. We use this example due to the fast paced nature of the environment. During high demand, products will be ordered in bulk with storage essential. An extra floor in this instance provides a quick fix and when built properly, has the ability to last for many years to come. Mezzanine floors are a great way for warehouses to maximise storage capacity without having to investigate moving.
Easy to Demount
Should the time arise when a move becomes absolutely necessary, mezzanine floors are easily deconstructed. They can be moved across to new premises and reconstructed once again.
Mezzanine floors offer additional space in many locations across numerous industries. They are a cost-effective way of increasing both space and productivity.
