3 Common Uses for Mezzanine Flooring
Mezzanine flooring is a semi-permanent space-saving solution that makes the most of empty vertical space. At some point or another, most businesses will expand, and when this happens, they have two choices: expand the existing space with a mezzanine flooring solution or move premises. While moving might be preferable to some, it also comes with a great deal of hassle and hefty expenses in terms of packing up the office or warehouse, moving furniture, shutting down operations, moving costs, and the new set-up.
If it’s a big business, you can look at being out of action for a few weeks when it comes to a move, and this can seriously impact revenue. Happily, mezzanine flooring solutions are quick to install, and when you choose a seasoned installer like Avalon Steel Projects, the job gets done in a jiffy.
You can enjoy these uses for mezzanine floors if you want to enhance existing space and add newfound levels.
3 uses for Mezzanine Flooring:
1) Extra Warehouse Space:
These flooring solutions are often found in factories or warehouses. These buildings often have an abundance of empty vertical space and make for a perfect environment to install an extra level. These levels can be used to store products and inventory and configured to make the best logistical sense for your warehouse operation. In factory settings, you might opt for rack-supported flooring as this has a huge load capacity and results in even more space. By using vertical space, you can almost double your premises without the hassle of a big move. Moreover, you can save on operational costs on the property since you won’t be moving to a bigger space with heftier utility bills.
2) Additional Offices:
As the pandemic begins to calm, many people are returning to the office. Mezzanine levels make for perfect additional offices, allowing your team to return to the office without the stress of crowded rooms. Electric plug points and lighting solutions can easily be added to these levels for corporate ease and success, making them feel just like a traditional office space.
3) Recreational Spaces:
They say that “all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.” This sentiment is also true when it comes to mezzanine levels. While they make for great storage spaces and additional offices, they can also be used for recreational areas. Why not make a dynamic staff hang-out zone or a cafeteria for clients? You can get creative with your mezzanine level, adding comfortable couches, a kitchenette, and tables and chairs.
