The Benefits of Mezzanine Levels for Large Facilities
Mezzanine floors are intermediate levels which are designed to cater to the facility’s needs by creating more floor space. They are installed where there is enough vertical space between the main floors of a building, or between the ground floor and roof of a warehouse. By creating additional floor space, without impeding the current floor space, the facility can extend its storage area or create much-needed office space.
In many instances, warehouse facilities would require increased floor space as businesses grow and expand. The common answer would be to relocate to a larger facility. We offer a better solution for such a facility. Since warehouses are blueprinted with a wide and open floorplan, the roof sits high from the ground to avoid any vertical struts that may obstruct to keep it up. As a result, the vertical gap between the floor and roof creates enough room for a mezzanine level. By installing an intermediate level, the facility will have the extended floor space that it requires, as opposed to relocating to a larger facility.
Roof-Lifting, Galleries, and BalconiesOur solutions can also increase the space between the roof and the ground floor of a warehouse facility. Therefore, if there is not enough vertical space, the increase will create enough to fill it with a mezzanine level. Such a semi-permanent structure can also be used as a gallery or balcony to increase seating in places of gathering. We can assess the facility to determine the best possible solution for galleries and balconies, ensuring that the structure does not impede any safety exits or current seating capacity.
A mezzanine floor is a semi-permanent structure that can be relocated or removed once it has served its purpose. Therefore, they are commonly used as temporary solutions for events as well. In your facility, you can determine what the purpose of such a structure would be. If you need a permanent solution, you simply don’t relocate or remove the intermediate level once it is installed. Therefore, it is feasible to create permanent office space, storage space, or workspace for your facility.
Making the most of the available floor space in a warehouse is key. Storage facilities will get creative with how the aisles are aligned to optimise the current floor space. Therefore, our mezzanine solutions ensure that the ground level is not impeded, apart from an access ramp. Since most warehouses utilise forklifts, such a quality can be very valuable to a facility that is cramped for space. If you are looking at a new facility, our solutions can deliver increased floor space before moving into the facility. Therefore, you can increase the available floor space and plan out your floorplan accordingly.
