Conventional mezzanine floors are a flexible way to create additional space by utilising available headroom. Common applications are for additional storage, production or office use. Can be a single level or multi–tier if headroom allows. All mezzanine floors require Building Regulations approval. We advise on these at the design stage to ensure your proposal is properly costed. We offer a complete solution that includes any fire rating that may be required, lighting, smoke detection and signage.
Pallet racking or longspan shelving can be used to support a floor if the area underneath is to be used solely for storage. This can often be more cost effective than installing a structural mezzanine floor with shelving on the ground floor, as well as offering improved density of storage. However the ground floor layout cannot easily be altered once installed.
Racking can be used to support a walkway when a high density of hand loaded shelving is required. Rather than creating a complete floor, the uprights are fitted with support beams for the walkway, commonly particleboard or steel grating. This system offers high storage densities and is an ideal solution when there is order picking of relatively slow moving lines. Access to and from walkways (often multi tiered) can be with conveyors or goods lifts. Both rack supported and walkway options require Building Regulations approval in the same way as structural mezzanine floors.
