Uses of mezzanine flooring in commerce

Is it time to go up a level in life? A warehouse that functions smoothly and makes effective use of all its space is key to commerce success. One way to ensure this is to add mezzanine flooring to your warehouse to optimise your existing floor space.

What is mezzanine flooring?

A mezzanine floor is an additional floor level that is installed between a warehouse ceiling and ground floor to provide extra space. It is important that it is well planned, expertly designed and professionally manufactured.

There are various types of mezzanine flooring, including bar grating, wood, steel diamond plate, concrete, particle board, laminated panel, resin composite and more. There are also different types of floor designs, including freestanding, racking supported, full mat, catwalk, multi-level, modular and others. Let’s now take a look at the many uses of mezzanine flooring in commerce.

Uses of mezzanine flooring

Mezzanine floors are usually constructed for businesses that require extra space. It’s a cost-effective way to maximise the use of available space without having to rent or purchase more property. There are many uses for mezzanine floors, including assembly operations, locker rooms for employees, storage for machinery, parts storage, office space and more. The setups and uses of mezzanine floors vary depending on objectives. Here are some of the main uses:

  1. Industrial 

Industrial mezzanine flooring is made of heavy duty materials, normally steel. Industrial mezzanines can have multiple purposes including storage and added production and assembly areas.

  1. Warehouse 

A mezzanine floor is most often seen in a warehouse because it increases capacity without the cost of additional property or loss of business. A warehouse mezzanine level provides flexibility.

  1. Office 

Modular offices are common in industrial locations and warehouses that require space for management and staff to do paperwork and meet with employees. Since employees need to be available to deal with things on the floor, they need a convenient, accessible space.

  1. Retail

Retail mezzanines are popular in outlet stores or in shops where the space needed depends on seasons and display needs. Retail mezzanines are handy since they can be disassembled and stored away when they are not needed.

Mezzanine flooring can also be used in workshops or as observation decks and catwalks in various spaces.
