Mezzanine Floors – A Historical Masterpiece Fit for the Modern World


Mezzanine floors, also known as intermediate levels, are semi-permanent flooring structures that enable you to make the most of unused, vertical space. Strictly speaking, they are partially open to the floor below. Essentially, these levels allow you to expand your business operations and do so by creating a partial flooring solution. Mezzanine floors are popular in an array of buildings, from offices and warehouses to factories and even restaurants. They offer an affordable space-saving solution and ultimately diminish the need for businesses to move premises or halt their operations. Since they are semi-permanent in nature, they can be dismantled if and when needed and relocated if you ever decide to move premises. Our specialised intermediate levels are made with Stimber long-span beams, meaning that fewer vertical beams are needed. This frees up even more space underneath your mezzanine floors and enables you to make the most of the extra level.

Nonetheless, despite their ever-growing popularity in modern times, they have been around for hundreds of years. In fact, the first mezzanine levels were seen in the early 1700s, and they were often erected in the lower part of a theatre’s balcony. The word derives from the Italian term “mezzanino” and was a popular feature in both French and Italian architecture in days gone by. It was prevalent in royal and political settings and can be seen in various prominent buildings around the world today, including the Quirinal Palace in Rome, the Bilbao station in Spain, and the Palace of Versailles. Thus, they have stood the test of time and are certainly not going out of fashion any time soon.
