What is Mezzanine Flooring?

You may have had the experience of buying a particular expensive item, or had some construction work where you have spent a long time deciding on what you wanted. It can take over your mind, and you can start to see it everywhere! Well, this might very well be the case with mezzanine flooring too, as these flooring systems are design features within some of the most famous buildings in history, including the Palace of Versailles, the Capitol Cinema in Ottawa, Canada, the Maastricht Centre Céramique in the Netherlands, and the well-known metro station in Bilbao, Spain. Here in the UK, in London, arts centres such as the Barbican and The Royal Festival Hall also incorporate these structures into their design. It was in France where they became a staple feature of its architecture, and now they are widely considered a hallmark of contemporary design. More than simply a storage place, read on to find out more about its purposes.

What is Mezzanine Flooring Used for?

Initially, industrial mezzanine systems were used for maximizing the space and improve organisation within buildings such as storage facilities and warehouses. This additional flooring system allows you to create multiple platforms to increase storage space, and this remains a major reason for mezzanine installation. Additionally, another purpose for opting for these floor systems is to create a particular aesthetic within a building for public use, such as a retail space. They offer the opportunity to provide more light in their design, whether that is by fitting lights into the undercarriage of the flooring, or by the use of transparent materials. It can also create a warm, immersive atmosphere in spaces where the high ceilings seem hollow and empty.

What is the Benefit of Mezzanine Flooring?

On the practical side, the obvious benefits of mezzanine flooring are self-evident, in that they create efficient storage spaces, and unique designs to shop floors and other spaces. They are easier and quicker to install and change around than more permanent building work, so you have the benefit of flexibility. Furthermore, there is also a benefit in terms of increasing the amount of light in a space, which can positively impact on the performance and mood of staff, as well as those entering the space on a more irregular basis. At Central Storage, we are able to manufacture and build your ideal mezzanine floor system.
