So, you may be wondering… what is mezzanine flooring? Well, hopefully this will help you to understand. A mezzanine floor is an elevated platform that sits between the ceiling and the floor of a building. The platform is supported by steel columns and is independent of a building structure. To make the most of any vertical space, mezzanine flooring comes in many different shapes and sizes to maximise its use.
Mezzanine flooring can be fitted without any fuss being caused as it can be built around existing structures. Mezzanine flooring is normally made from fibreglass, steel or aluminium but can be adapted to suit its surroundings. Before any mezzanine floor is fitted, detailed drawings are carefully created so that the mezzanine can be custom-made to tailor the client’s requirements.
All mezzanine floors are customised to fit any client’s space and the flooring can be chosen from a wide range of floor surfaces. Because of the flooring being so strong, it is able to cope with different applications, whether that be light storage or whether it needs to support a larger, heavier kind of machinery.
Mezzanine flooring is a great way to maximise your space. It can be used to create additional floors giving you extra office space or to give you the most out of storage. Mezzanine floors are a very cost effective way to quickly get you the extra space that you need, without the inconvenience and expense of having to relocate to another building.
Fitting mezzanine requires a certain degree of skill. What also requires skill is building the steel frames that go underneath the mezzanine floors to support them. This is carried out by a professional engineer. As well as utilising your buildings overhead space, in most cases, a mezzanine flooring structure does not need planning permission so little disruption is needed.
