Mezzanine Floor Designs and Plans
Importance of Proper Design
A well-planned mezzanine floor can revolutionise your space. The design should consider load-bearing capacity, accessibility, and purpose of the mezzanine to ensure it serves your needs effectively.
Key Components of a Mezzanine Floor Plan
Key components include the base floor, columns, beams, decking material, stairs, and safety features like handrails. All these need to be factored into the floor plan.
Design Varieties: From Offices to Warehouses
Mezzanine designs range from simple raised platforms to complex multi-level structures, catering to offices, warehouses, retail stores, and residential homes.
Our mezzanine floors are made as either modular or custom designs to allow you to achieve your exact requirements. They are not a one-size fits all mezzanine like many suppliers offer.
All our floors are structurally certified by a Structural Engineer and come with detailed marking plans that allow you to choose either a fully installed package or a supply-only mezzanine floor kit wherever you are located.
Please note that installation of mezzanine floors involves lifting and fixing heavy items and installation should not be attempted by persons who are not appropriately trained or do not have the correct equipment.
