Outgrowing your current business premises is one of the biggest reasons people choose a mezzanine floor as an alternative to changing their business location.
Meeting rooms and offices are another great way mezzanine flooring can add extra functionality to your business. If you’re in the retail sector, then adding extra space to display stock by using a mezzanine can increase the floor space of your shop.
Changing your business premises can be an expensive and time-consuming process. Sometimes moving just doesn’t make sense especially if your business is already in a prime location.
The alternative to this is to stay put and build some type of mezzanine flooring on your premises. This can transform your building by using the available vertical space between the floor and the ceiling, which is otherwise unused.
Mezzanine floors are usually constructed from steel, aluminium or fibreglass. There are a few main components which make up a mezzanine floor. These include beams, purlins, decking and columns which make up the main structure. Common accessories which are usually fitted include handrails and staircases, especially if the mezzanine is going to be used in a retail environment.
Mezzanines are always custom-made using specific designs tailored towards the needs of the client. Building a mezzanine floor takes a degree of skill and should be outsourced to a specialist company who are experienced with the design and build process.
Heavy machinery can be placed on a mezzanine if the structure can withstand the weight. Businesses which use these types of machines can be expanded easily with the use of a mezzanine floor.
