Things to consider when installing mezzanine floors
Installing Mezzanine Floors
Mezzanine floors, also known as intermediate levels, offer a fantastic way to enhance your existing space without the hassle and stress of moving to a bigger building. As businesses grow, space often becomes an issue. However, not everyone is in the position to close shop and find a new building. That is where mezzanine floors come in. They are cost-effective, quick to install, and space-saving – there really are no downsides. As long as you go with trusted suppliers, like the team at Avalon Steel Projects, quality and durability are guaranteed. Reputable suppliers will always consider the following before installing mezzanine floors:
- Ventilation: Ventilation is a very important thing to think about if you are going to install mezzanine floors. Since hot air rises, intermediate levels (erected in empty vertical space) can become hot if you do not carefully consider ventilation. Chat to the team installing the mezzanine level about ventilation solutions and ensure there is enough airflow in the intermediate level to keep your staff and clients cool. This might also include the additional installation of an air conditioning system.
- Lighting: Lighting is also an essential part of your mezzanine level. In certain buildings, you might have natural light and high windows, and you will not need too much artificial light to illuminate the space. However, in certain spaces, high windows will be non-existent, and you will need lighting solutions. You can also chat with technicians about the placement of light switches. You might wish to have an extra switch downstairs for added ease.
- Space-Saving Properties: Mezzanine floors can be utilised for a wide range of purposes, but they are mostly about saving space. Experienced designers will know exactly how to make the most of your empty vertical space and will design an intermediate level that gives you the maximum amount of space for the particular area.
- Safety: One of the most important aspects of installing these floors is safety. Qualified installers will ensure that your mezzanine level adheres to all safety regulations. Safety features might include fire detectors, railings to ensure that people do not fall over, alarm systems, and more.
