Mezzanine floors are ideal for any retail space, as they allow for increased storage space, and maximising the space you have available in a warehouse or factory. They are easy to install and also easy to remove, should you need to relocate. Here are a few great tips for installing mezzanine flooring in your business.
The first step is to prepare the space. Keep in mind that you should have space for the delivery of the materials, so ensure that there is enough room for this to happen. The steel frame will be added first, by securing it firmly and allowing for the decking to commence. When your steel frame is in place, you can then start by fitting the heavy duty decking, which will provide a very durable, load-bearing surface for you to use.
You can also add additional fire protection to the side underneath the mezzanine floors that will provide you with fire protection for your factory, warehouse or retail space. Once the surface is complete, you can now continue and have the surface painted in a coating that will make the floor easy to clean in the future. This is a great step as it will allow you to reduce the amount of maintenance needed on an ongoing basis.
For even greater load-bearing strength and impact resistance of your floors, you can choose your floors to be manufactured with hot-rolled standardised beams. Platforms and goods lifts can also be added to allow for the effective movement of goods from one level to another. There are many different options to use, making these floors incredibly modern, versatile and very popular among business owners.
Mezzanine floors are designed so that you can maximise your floor space and double the amount of storage space you have available without having to expand your building or buy additional storage space somewhere else. These floors are very versatile, durable and easy to remove, should you need to relocate in the future.
