What Are Mezzanine Floors?
Mezzanine Floors are a hallmark of modern architecture, and not just a simple feature of a warehouse. So what is a mezzanine? The most common definition of the word mezzanine is ‘the second floor’, even if it doesn’t represent a floor in the real sense of the word. The Mezzanine Floor is usually a partial floor which is located between the ground level and the first floor.
Mezzanines or Mezzanine Floors are also low balconies in symphony halls and theaters, the tickets for which usually provide the best view on the stage.
Why are Mezzanine Floors Important?
The definition of mezzanine floor systems may outline what these structures actually are, but the question of why these systems are introduced to many different types of buildings has yet to be answered.
The concept of mezzanine floor systems, in an industrial sense, was designed to maximise space and improve organisation within buildings such as warehouses and storage facilities alike. By not overhanging completely, this additional flooring system provides owners with a whole other platform in which to store materials, increasing their storage space massively.
However, relating back to our previous point regarding the famous examples of Mezzanine Floor Systems, there does not always need to be a purpose. As previously discussed, this flooring option can also be used purely for aesthetic reasons in buildings of any type.
Mezzanine floor systems also provide more light to buildings that are without natural lighting, as the undercarriage of these systems can be fitted with lights to help brighten up a warehouse or building.
Furthermore, buildings with high ceilings can seem hollow and empty, in which case a mezzanine floor system can be introduced to help make these spaces more immersive and the extra floor offers greater depth and substance.
Some More Benefits
Not only do these flooring types help with maximising storage space, but they allow for better organisation within your work. When provided with an extra level of storage space, your once cluttered warehouse can now be organised in a way which allows you to manoeuvre your space more easily, and the introduction of shelving units will allow you to sift through large quantities of materials in a much more efficient manner.
In an industrial sense, Mezzanine Floor Systems also provide warehouse owners with a degree of flexibility by being able to introduce and remove them as and when you please. When you install a mezzanine floor system into your warehouse, you are not lumbered with that decision forever; if the new layout is not for you, then the whole unit can be removed just as easily as it was installed.
