What is a mezzanine floor?

A mezzanine floor is a semi-permanent floor between permanent floors of a building and isn’t generally classified as a set floor in a home or building. Mezzanine floors come in customisable options but generally possess a low ceiling and have a balcony-like appearance. The term “mezzanine” stems from the Italian word “mezzano” which means middle.

How does it work?

Mezzanine floors can be built depending on your needs. These ‘pseudo’ floors are built to be semi-permanent, letting you easily dismantle when needed and relocate without problems.

Types of mezzanine floor

Mezzanine floors are usually constructed with steel, fibreglass and aluminium. Depending on the look and feel you’d like your mezzanine floor to have, you can choose to have wood or steel flooring.

When is a mezzanine floor needed?

Mezzanine floors are usually built for extra storage space. This allows for shelving to be built both above and below the floor, making it a great addition for buildings that need additional storage space.

Depending on a company’s requirements, mezzanine floors can be used for offices or shared communal spaces in a building, while the area underneath is reserved for storage. This is a great way to create an office-like environment in a warehouse or factory without taking up too much space. This also allows employees to have easy access to equipment, tools, etc. Mezzanine floors can also contain kitchens, bathrooms and more.

Mezzanine floors can also be hugely beneficial for retail spaces. As companies usually need as much space as possible to showcase their products, mezzanine floors provide a great solution for office space while keeping the integrity of the store.
