Five Features of Our Mezzanine Flooring for Storage
Mezzanine flooring offers additional space and flooring for a multitude of purposes, so today at Central Storage we’re going to focus on five features of the flooring as it applies to storage solutions. Read on to find out more about how we can help your company with our mezzanine floor platform designs.
If you’re unfamiliar with how mezzanine flooring words, one concern you may have is about the strength of this flooring compared with bricks-and-mortar structures. Although a lightweight option, you can rest assured that our mezzanine systems are ideal for storage spaces and warehouses due to their ability to hold a large amount of weight. In general, the strength of this flooring will be capable of supporting a load of 500kg per square metre when evenly distributed. This means they can even hold a pallet truck carrying this weight.
When we install your mezzanine system, safety is our first priority. Whilst storage areas are often at the back, and there can be an idea of disappearing into a Narnia-like land of boxes, we make sure to fit each floor with adequate escape routes, so it won’t become a maze with no way out. We will also make sure to add additional fire detectors and emergency lights into the underside of any storage mezzanine platform, in order to be fully prepared for maximum security and safety.
Firstly, when it comes to speed, it is needless to say that it is much quicker to install mezzanine flooring than do a complete overhaul on your building. Long construction projects mean that you will lose out on precious time when you need to be productive. Instead, when installing mezzanine systems you don’t lose out on all that valuable time. You can install these floors into existing buildings, as well as during the initial construction of a building.
Our standard designs will handle the basic UDL (Uniformly Distributed Load) as outlined above, and we can work from our usual blueprints which we adapt for every space. However, it is also possible to offer a more bespoke service, where we are able to custom-design your mezzanine flooring to almost any likely load requirement. Similarly, we can tailor the design to your building specifications, so you can get the storage space of your dreams.
Although you may always need to use your mezzanine flooring as a storage space, we understand that things can change. For this reason, we also note that it is possible to modify the structure for a range of purposes, whether you later need additional office space or an extra sales floor.
