Things to Consider when Installing Mezzanine Flooring Levels
Mezzanine flooring has garnered tremendous popularity in commercial and industrial settings, thanks to its affordability, quick installation process, and semi-permanent nature. These levels are also super versatile since mezzanine flooring can be used for many applications, including extra storage space, additional offices, a filing room, boardrooms, and more. It is imperative to work with experienced experts like the team at Avalon Steel Projects when it comes to installation. We will ensure quality design and structure so that durability and safety are guaranteed.
When it comes to these levels, you will need to consider the following elements to ensure that you make the most of your additional level:
Consider the following 3 Elements to ensure that you make the most of your Mezzanine Flooring Levels
Since hot air rises, you will want to consider the ventilation of your mezzanine flooring level. If the level is strictly used for storage (and storing items that do not require a particular temperature), then you might not have to invest so much into adequate ventilation. However, if the levels will be utilised for additional offices, meeting rooms, waiting rooms, or any other space where people congregate regularly, it is definitely worth considering a proper ventilation system.
Lighting is another essential consideration to make when installing an extra level. While some buildings might offer fantastic natural lighting and high windows, others will need additional lighting solutions. When installing lighting, you might also want to consider where the switches are located. For added ease, you might also place switches on the bottom floor too.
When installing an additional level, it is also imperative that you consider safety factors, not only in the installation itself but in the actual execution of it. Handrails or kickboards on the edges can go a long way in upping safety. You might even choose to install a smoke alarm on the floor and instil a maximum weight policy on the level. As with any addition to a warehouse or industrial setting, staff training is paramount.
