What are the benefits of a mezzanine floor?

The key benefit of having a mezzanine floor installed in your workplace is that it allows you to greatly expand the amount of space available to you quickly and easily without having to move premises.

In the current economic climate, moving premises is a risky business. As the economy continues to flatline, with growth being minimal and a triple dip recession only narrowly avoided, many businesses are treading very cautiously and have been treading cautiously for the last five years. Moving to larger premises at a time of such uncertainty is a risk that few businesses can afford to take right now. Since property prices crashed over five years ago, they have been very slow to recover, whilst banks have been slow to lend to businesses whilst the future remains uncertain.

At the same time, it is vitally important to allow your business to grow if the opportunity is there. With very little growth around in the economy, if your business is growing well then you need to have the facilities to accommodate that growth and take full advantage of it. Essentially, you need more space without the risk of moving to larger premises. That is where using mezzanine floors come in.

Many businesses that have warehouses have a huge amount of space which they are not using and which they could utilise without the risk of moving premises or the upheaval of extending the existing building. Warehouses are tall, and most of the space above the warehouse floor is generally wasted space which could be put to use.

Installing a mezzanine floor can allow you to have more storage space above your existing warehouse, or can allow you to have offices upstairs and storage space downstairs, or even production space downstairs with storage space upstairs.

Without having to move or extend, installing a mezzanine floor could double your existing workspace, meaning you haven’t taken any gambles or risks, but have allowed your business to grow.

A mezzanine floor is also the most cost effective way to expand your business. Logical Storage can design, create and install a mezzanine floor to suit your needs – tailor made to help your business rather than following a “one size fits all” template.  It is quick to install and is also flexible, so if you need to make further changes in the future then you can.  Mezzanine floors don’t have to be permanent, so if you business or needs change again in the future, so can your mezzanine floor.
