Mezzanine Floors

If you’re looking for ways to increase your warehouse storage capacity, investing in warehouse mezzanine floors and storage systems are an ideal way to go about it. Not only do mezzanine floors maximise the space you already have, but they’re also an incredibly cost-effective option that can save you hassle and avoids expensive short term solutions. Mezzanines can potentially double your storage space, without having to think about the idea of relocating or extending your building. Mezzanine floors are also ideal if you’re looking to add usable workspace or office space alongside storage facilities. Perfect for warehouses, retail units, gyms and more.

What is a warehouse mezzanine floor?

Warehouse mezzanine floors are often referred to as a raised section or platform which is usually used as a way to store additional stock or inventory. It is installed between the floor and ceiling and is technically classed as a temporary structure, so planning permission isn’t always needed. They consist of steel uprights and beams to hold the load and are topped by decking made of either timber, treadplate or steel.

Will I need planning permission for a mezzanine floor?

As a mezzanine floor is classed as a temporary structure, usually no formal planning permission is required. There are however exceptions. For example, if permission to develop was previously restricted, or if the floor is to be used for office or work space, building regulations will need to be approved before any warehouse mezzanine work can be done. It is possible for us to obtain this for you, which means you can guarantee that everything will be in safe hands. Our industry experts are specialists in obtaining the permission you need from the relevant authorities, and will provide you with the storage solutions you’re searching for. Local authority charges may still apply. You can read more in our dedicated article about planning permission for mezzanine floors.
