The Truth About Steel Mezzanine Floors: Myths Busted
Although you need extra space for storage, employee relaxation, training, or an office component, you may not have considered the installation of a steel mezzanine floor. Maybe you don’t know how cost-effective this solution is, or perhaps you think that you will need special building plans to install such a surface.
Read on to discover myths and truths about steel mezzanine floors, and you will soon realise how your business can benefit from the creation of more operational space.
Myth 1: Mezzanine Floors It Won’t Work For Every Business
While the roof of your building may be too low at present to allow for the installation of a steel mezzanine floor, this doesn’t mean that an extra level isn’t possible. We can also lift roofs without having to reconstruct entire buildings. With the roof lifted, your warehouse will have more space. However, to maximise on the available vertical space, consider the installation of a steel mezzanine floor. We offer customisation options to meet your exact space requirements. With the customisable finishes, it is possible to create extra space that looks and feels the same as the rest of your premises. Everything from handrails and column guards to smoke detection and fire protection can be put in place to ensure your space meets safety and functionality requirements.
Myth 2: It Is Too Expensive to Install Floors
This is perhaps the biggest myth of all. Yes, it does cost money to install the additional surface and desired finished. However, if you have to build an entirely new brick and mortar storey or the same space on the ground floor, it will be far more expensive. Moving a warehouse can also be more expensive. The height, size, finishes, and types of materials used affect the price. When you consider the cost of moving to new premises, changing the business address, and marketing for such changes, you can already see how opting for a steel mezzanine floor makes the expansion of business operations possible in a cost-effective manner.
