Installing a mezzanine floor in your existing building would be a cheaper alternative to moving premises, especially if you’re looking for more storage or office space. Such an addition could also add value to your existing building and should provide a good return on your investment. Let’s look at the different types of mezzanine floors:
Office Mezzanine Floors
Office mezzanine floor installations have become a very popular solution in recent years. They give you the platform to create whatever office facilities you require within your warehouse. Office mezzanines are one of the most economic ways to maximise and expand your office space. Along with their space and cost saving benefits, mezzanine floors also look great. When designing an office mezzanine floor for office space, it’s important the floor is designed with the correct loadings. Typically an office mezzanine floor will be designed with a 3.5kN/m2 capacity.
Storage Mezzanine Floors
A storage mezzanine floor is an additional level installed in an area as a warehouse or commercial building that is used for storage. Mezzanine floor storage can give you twice the flexibility without the need to move or extend. They are a quick and easy to install solution, so you’ll have your new storage space in no time. They are ideal to house all the additional shelving and racking space that you require for your products.
Multi-Tier Mezzanine Floors
A multi-tier mezzanine could add several floors to your space, eliminating the need to relocate your business. Boosting your building’s performance is critical to your business’s bottom line. A multi-tier mezzanine flooring allows you to create additional storage areas. You can choose either two or three tiers. If your business premises is tall, then a Multi-Tier Mezzanine Floor is the ideal solution to expanding your business. However, the main drawback of the two-tier flooring or multi-tier flooring solution is the fact that all shelving must follow the same footprint and load capacities of shelving must be carefully considered.
