Making the Most of Unused Vertical Space by Installing a Mezzanine Floor
Warehouses are commonly used for storing products and materials of different sorts. Whether it is a fleet of new cars, building material pallets, or commercial products, storage facilities have their use for many businesses. To make the most of such a facility, the useable space must be optimised within the confines of the building. Therefore, vertical support would only get in the way. As a result, these buildings would normally feature open plans with tall roofs to avoid the need for vertical support. However, this creates space for the installation of mezzanine floors.
Since the roof is high above the ground, a void exists between them, which can be filled and utilised accordingly. By installing a mezzanine level, you will fill this gap of vertical space and create more useable floorspace for your facility. Therefore, there will be no need for large building renovations to extend the available space. We can also lift the roof of such a building to create more vertical space for intermediate levels. These levels have various benefits for your business to take advantage of.
The Semi-Permanent Solution
Mezzanine floors are semi-permanent structures. This translates into a versatile solution for warehouses. Semi-permanent structures can be installed on a specific location in a warehouse to serve a specific purpose. Once the time comes that the extra space is no longer needed on the current location, the structure can simply be relocated or removed. This is a very helpful feature for events as well. Large event-orientated buildings use intermediate levels to create extra space for specific events where the regular capacity of the building will not suffice. By adding an intermediate level, the event planners can use the extra space for additional seating, which can be removed once the event has concluded.
Our mezzanine floor installations require minimal vertical support, eliminating the need to sacrifice current space for extra support. This function is ideal for warehouses using material handling equipment, such as pallet trucks and forklifts. The risk of bumping into a vertical support structure can have dramatic consequences. Luckily, our solutions will avoid this problem, delivering a semi-permanent structure that can be used for a plethora of functions.
Creating office space is also a possibility with mezzanine floor installation. Not every storage facility has a dedicated office space, which creates a problem in some respects. By using the available vertical space in such a building, offices can easily be created to suit the needs of your business. These levels can also serve as an extension of the available storage space in your facility. Therefore, the possibilities are endless regarding their use in a warehouse or event building. If you are cramped for space and can utilise the available vertical space in your building, the time is right to consider intermediate levels.
