The Basics of Mezzanine Flooring

In order to run a successful business, it is essential to make the best and most effective use of available resources.  But many firms are wasting a vast untapped resource day after day, without even realising it!

Most modern commercial and industrial units are constructed with generous amounts of headroom, with ceilings which may be thirty or forty feet high, or even more.  But in many cases, the upper half of this space goes almost completely unused.  Even tall storage systems such as racking require floor space to be cleared before they can be installed.

Mezzanine floor systems, on the other hand, can offer up to 100% more floor area without compromising ground space.  A steel mezzanine floor acts like an additional storey to your premises, but as the structure is self-supporting, you don’t have to worry about making structural alterations to the building.  Central Storage Systems can provide a range of different mezzanine flooring systems for various purposes, so be sure to talk to us about your requirements before making any decision.  Some common types are as follows:

Warehouse mezzanine systems are a popular alternative to racking, as they can be used to store boxed, bundled, or palletized goods, subject to weight limits.

Industrial mezzanine systems can be used to provide access to machinery, or to separate parts of a process.  If servicing your production equipment is your goal, a mezzanine platform can be as wide as your premises, or as narrow as a single walkway in order to offer the access to need.

Other common uses for a modular mezzanine include offices and showrooms.  It is sometimes possible to find a standardized mezzanine floor for sale, but the advantage of working with Central Storage is that every mezzanine installation we perform is made-to -measure for its site and purpose.  Contact our team today to find out more.
