Types of Mezzanine Flooring
Due to its space-saving advantages, many types of buildings benefit from building an extra floor on top of their ground floor rather than relocating or reconstructing. A professional architect should always be used to determine what type of flooring to use and also to determine whether the building is suitable for installation or construction of a mezzanine.
A professional will also be wary of the weight the structure can support and will advise you accordingly. The various types of mezzanine floors are:
Industrial Mezzanine Flooring
Normally used in warehouses and factories, industrial mezzanines are not normally constructed with the building but are rather installed on to an area after construction as the need arises.
Steel mezzanine floors are a popular method used by industrial building owners to acquire additional work or storage space without having to reconstruct their building.
These types of floors normally have an open plan but might feature enclosed offices as per the requirements. Many types of industrial mezzanine floors can be installed based on the requirements and available space. These include:

Benefits of Mezzanine Flooring
Office mezzanine flooring enables you to use an existing property more effectively, by utilising the vertical space you have in your premises. A mezzanine level is quick and cost-effective way for your clients to obtain the space they need, without disruption to ‘business as usual’. Some uses for office mezzanine floors include: workspace for office-based personnel; training or meeting areas; canteens and control rooms. Mezzanine floors come with a wide range of benefits which is why they have become so popular in modern architecture. Some of these benefits include:
Compared to constructing a whole new floor or setting up a new base of operations, installing a mezzanine floor is an extremely cost effective way to get more out of your available space. For instance block paving only allows for one single floor, unlike mezzanine floors you can add more floors to your building without losing a fortune.
Mezzanine floors that are used in public areas are adorned with a number of attractive features such as glass and aluminium, which adds value to the existing building.
When used correctly by a professional architect, these floors can really enhance the way your building looks this is because of the simplicity.
