A storage mezzanine floor is, as you’d expect, a mezzanine floor that is solely used for storage purposes. This is a great way to increase the floor space of your premises without the need to move properties. Existing airspace which you’re currently paying for can simply be converted into additional storage space with the application of a mezzanine floor.

As your business expands, so do the requirements for space and storage. To move premises is the obvious answer but that comes with associated costs. By thinking cubic space instead of floor space, a storage mezzanine floor can avoid the disruption of moving. By utilising the space above existing working areas, you can maximise the storage capabilities of your current premises with our products.

Raised above the existing work area, storage mezzanine floors are made of steel and are extremely versatile which means they can be configured to optimise the existing space available.  Only restricted by the height of your building, you can unlock the potential untapped space and help your business to grow.

Storage mezzanine floors are incredibly cost-effective solution to your storage needs whilst also providing all the benefits detailed above. There is a wide range of additional options to choose from to tailor your mezzanine floor to your requirements.

As a full-service company, we have the expertise and experience to guide you through the whole process from initial design concepts through to project completion and handover. Our specialist teams will work with you to design and install a bespoke solution that is tailored to your exact requirements. We pride ourselves on building longterm business relationships and customer service is the key ingredient, so we’ll include you in every step of the way, whether we require your approval on a design, a new solution creation and schedules relating to delivery and installation.
