Overcoming Mezzanine Flooring Problems

Some spaces are easier to put mezzanine in than others but it is always possible to overcome mezzanine flooring problems when it comes to installing them. Even encumbrances like existing offices, building structures and roof steelwork don’t necessarily cause us mezzanine flooring problems. If we put some thought into it and you – the client, are committed to making it happen then anything is possible.

Overcoming Mezzanine Flooring Problems

Think we can’t fit a floor in there? Think again.

We replaced their existing mezzanine with a brand new, larger replacement. This replacement had new hand railing and compliant stairs. This allowed them to utilise really valuable space above their block-work office and beneath the roof steelwork.

OK so you may not have a convoluted site like this one. However, our ability to overcome mezzanine flooring problems undertake an installation like this should give you the confidence that we can do the straightforward ones with even more aplomb.

Typically, we can fit around 100m of new mezzanine flooring in 3 days. This includes hand railing and a staircase. And as there’s no need to engage with wet trades (Building Contractors, for example) the job is clean and quick. It will have limited impact upon your day-to-day operations.

Get in touch with us – we’re happy to give you the benefit of our expertise and experience.

Specifying Mezzanine Finish and Upgrades

There are vast possibilities for specifying your mezzanine finish and upgrades. For instance, you could specify upgraded handrail designs and different paint finishes to suit your environment.

Mezzanines follow pretty much a standard design irrespective of their proposed use and are either:

  • Hot rolled main steel structure
  • Cold rolled joists
  • Particleboard or steel decking

From there on in, it’s the way the floor is developed which changes its overall appearance to the mezzanine finish:

  • Retail mezzanine floors have partitions, floor coverings, upmarket stairs and balustrades added.
  • Commercial mezzanine floors have things like carpet tiles laid and partitioned enclosures erected to create individual offices
  • Industrial mezzanine floors tend to be left very much as they were when they were initially built. They have little further development beyond the addition of materials handling and storage products.

You may think your application would benefit from a more polished look. One of the main ways to achieve this is by specifying high quality stair and handrail finishes.

Glass infill panels, stainless steel components, powder coated steelwork in non-standard RAL or BS colours can all be supplied. These can all, when done well, add a great deal to the aesthetic of a bog standard mezzanine.

Simple Mezzanines can provide many different mezzanine finishes and designs to hand railing and stairs. We’re always happy to discuss your requirements at the initial investigation stage.

Lightweight Mezzanine Floors in Modern Units

Lightweight mezzanine floors are becoming increasingly popular as new industrial units are popping up everywhere. These new units can be erected quickly and relatively cheaply.

Most facilities have high roofs as there’s unlimited space as you expand upward. However, the footprint these new sites occupy are limited by the size of the land available to develop.

Lightweight mezzanine floors made from steel are ideally suited to inclusion in these modern units.

They can be incorporated as soon as the slab’s cured, roof’s complete and the wall cladding is in place. We can also install floors using generators for our power and lighting. Fork Trucks, Scissor Lifts and Cherry Pickers can be powered using gas. Therefore, the erection of the structure isn’t compromised by the lack of a permanent electrical supply.


Lightweight Mezzanine Floors


If you’re contemplating moving to, expanding into, or starting your business from a new unit like the featured in the image, think about future expansion WITHIN the unit.

It may be worthwhile considering Simple Mezzanines to cost your mezzanine floor for installation at the early stages. Otherwise you may get to the point of occupying your new site and realise that you need that new raised floor immediately.

Get in touch with us and we’ll help you to identify what’s right for you and how best to achieve your new mezzanine installation – wherever and whenever it might be.

All we had to change was the decking, since the installation was still pristine and had stood up to the rigours of daily use very well.

Take a closer look at the picture… The stair serves two separate sides of the floor and is located to allow travel distances from each level, so that the reaches from each side is minimised.

Mezzanine Floor for a Car Dealership

We built the mezzanine floor for a car dealership pictured below for Porsche in Heathrow. They decided that they wanted to create a secure facility to park their Boxter and Cayman models overnight. They were used to having them exposed on a forecourt and decided they wanted something more secure.

A local contractor will be forming offices above and fire rating the underside. It was therefore imperative that we commenced on time and erected the mezzanine floor for the car dealership in two days.

We achieved both of these feats with ease. The dealership can now drive their used cars into the space beneath the floor with no problem.

Mezzanine Floor for a Leisure Centre

Last year we completed two mezzanine floors for a leisure centre based in Manchester, which runs an inflatable fun park. The floors were designed to support inflatable slides and cafe facilities. The mezzanine floor to the right has both 4m & 6m levels. There’s even a gangplank to allow users to dive off using a zip-wire!

Simple Mezzanines were awarded the job of building the mezzanine floor for the leisure centre because they’d already installed the original cafe mezzanine floor in 2015. The client remains delighted following  their recent installation during October 2019.
