Considerations Before Installing Mezzanine Flooring
Mezzanine flooring, also known as an intermediate level, is a great way to utilise empty space and expand your business operations. Flexible, affordable, and practical, it has become a popular option for many companies in recent years. However, the difference between a professional job that takes design and material into account and a shoddy job that has no inkling for design is noticeable and, at worst, dangerous. That is why it is imperative that you look to the experts when it comes to mezzanine flooring and the initial design.
When you choose the specialists for mezzanine flooring solutions, they will always consider the following:
- Safety Regulations: Arguably, the most crucial aspect of the installation and design process is ensuring that the mezzanine level adheres to safety standards. Thus, a qualified designer will analyse your premises and take into account various building regulations and safety protocols. In doing a safety analysis, they will then suggest multiple safety options, which could include handrails, steps, smoke detectors, and absolute structural integrity of the level.
- Lighting: Any South African citizen knows how important light is, especially in the age of load-shedding and rolling blackouts. Fortunately, your mezzanine flooring designer will also understand light and can thus advise accordingly on where best to position the lights and make the most of natural light. This will include expert advice on what type of light should be used, where it should be placed, and how it should be controlled.
- Ventilation: A quality installer and designer will also have an acute knowledge of ventilation. We know that hot air rises, and mezzanine flooring, when not installed by an expert, can get hot in those summer months. This is why you need to choose a supplier with extensive industry knowledge. They might consider thermal insulators, ventilation systems, or air-conditioning as a part of their design to ensure the ultimate comfort of employees and guests.
