If you’re in need of more office space because your business has expanded but you don’t want the hassle of moving to a new location, what can you do? Well have you considered installing a mezzanine floor?
Mezzanine floors are a great way of providing more space in an area that is cramped, without being a permanent fixture. Fixed to a wall with strong steel timber frames they give the illusion of a floating floor. The nature of their construction means that they’re strong enough to hold up a whole floor on their own and, even better, should you eventually move premises, you can take your mezzanine floor with you. So let’s take a closer look at the many benefits that steel mezzanine floors offer:
- Create a new space
The obvious benefit of a steel mezzanine floor is that it allows you to easily create a new space without the need to search for larger premises. As a smaller company you naturally have to keep a close eye on your expenditure and not only is the thought of finding suitable pemises daunting, but the additional costs could affect your cash flow significantly. If you’ve spent some time in building relationships with other companies in the vicinity, then moving away could undo all of this work. Not just this, but there’s the added problem of staff and customers having to travel possibly to a different area, and so problems keep mounting up. If the issue is just with acquiring more space, then a mazzanine floor could be the answer you’re looking for.
- Making the most of what you’ve got
While a mezzanine floor is a great solution to creating new space, on the flip side of that, it’s also a great way of utilising wasted space. In many buildings, particularly production centres, warehouses, and distribution centres space is often wasted, particularly in areas such as the roof. A mezzanine opens up this space allowing you to make better use of it. Once installed, a mezzanine is ideal for storage. Imagine a large space where you can keep uniforms, stationary, office equipment, and other bulky items. Alternatively, the floor can also be used as separate office space.
- Cost effectiveness
We’ve already discussed how installing a mezzanine can save on relocation costs and more costly rentals but in addition your heating bills can be reduced too. Warm air rises, so if additional office space is provided higher up, then the space should feel warmer, meaning your heating thermostat can be set a little lower. Mezzanines are also quick to install with very little disruption, if any, to you and your employees.
Steel mezzanie floors offer a cost effective solution to creating more space and the design can be tailored easily to your specific needs. They boast a lightweight construction and can be powder coated in any colour you like. They also have great fire protection properties.
