Mezzanine floors, also known as:
- raised storage floors
- mezzanine platforms
- storage mezzanines
- industrial floors
- retail mezzanines
- industrial Flooring
An Equip Storage Systems mezzanine floor is designed, manufactured and installed to the highest standard using the finest quality materials to ensure a long trouble free service life. Each site is fully surveyed and detailed plans are prepared for our customers approval before any manufacturing work takes place. This ensures each installation is best designed to suit our clients requirements.
A mezzanine floor is usually the most cost effective solution to creating additional floor space for virtually any use. A mezzanine floor can be installed in even the most difficult site at a fraction of the cost of extending using traditional building methods and is certainly much cheaper than moving to larger premises with the associated moving and fitting out costs.
Our fully trained staff will advise on all aspects of the design of the structure and will provide free guidance through each step of the project from initial site survey to completion. All mezzanine structures require approval under the building regulations and may also require landlords consents. We offer a free initial site consultation to discuss the individual requirements for the project and can obtain all of the necessary approvals on our clients behalf.
Deck options include standard 38mm thick high density particle board or moisture resistant particle board, steel plate (either smooth or patterned), steel mesh or even concrete decking where a rigid deck is needed for specialist uses.
Every Equip Storage Systems mezzanine floor is supplied with the following ancillary equipment as required by the site:
We can supply standard industrial type, retail display type or specialist types such as stainless steel, glass or mesh infilled or special designs to our customers specification.
Standard staircases are usually 900mm wide steel construction conforming to Part K of the National Building Regulations. Specialist staircases such as Retail or Showroom type can be supplied to suit the environment they are being used to serve with handrailing to match. Wider staircases conforming to Part M (Disabled Access-DDA) of the National Building Regulations can also be supplied.
Where a storage mezzanine floor extends over more than 50% of the floor area of the building it is in or is larger than 20 metres in either direction it will require FIRE PROTECTION. If the mezzanine floor is to be used for OFFICE or RETAIL use or if there are personnel permanently stationed on the mezzanine it will also require FIRE PROTECTION. This can be easily provided for by fitting a SUSPENDED CEILING and fire protective casings to the columns. The ceiling and column casings can be provided in a large selection of finishes to suit our clients requirements.

Retail Mezzanine Floors
Mezzanine floors can be a cost-effective solution to help maximise available space within a retail unit. Beyond the obvious benefit of simply increasing the sales floor area a well-designed mezzanine can help provide creative display areas for different product ranges and types. They can also help to draw customers further into your retail experience. An impressive well-placed staircase can be used to lead customers onto the mezzanine and carefully placed advertising and displays around the staircase atrium can give a hint of the sales opportunities on the mezzanine floor.
We have worked with many retail customers both large and small including The Range, Halfords, Cannock Caravans, Oakland Furniture as well as leisure venues such as Flip Out.
How much does a Mezzanine floor cost?
If you want to create additional floor space, a mezzanine floor is typically the most cost-effective solution.
But how much does a mezzanine floor actually cost?
On average, mezzanine floors cost around £90-£200 per square metre.
Bear in mind that this is an approximation since various factors impact the price. The total cost of building your mezzanine floor depends on components such as:

- The site’s access
- Building and fire regulations
- The amount of steelwork required
- Material type and quality

What is meant by a mezzanine floor?
A mezzanine floor is a free-standing warehouse structure that is usually made from steel, aluminium, or fibre. Mezzanine floors can be used to store materials or create an additional workspace in a warehouse.
Mezzanine floors are typically much less expensive than adding a second story to a building, and they can be installed quickly and easily. Additionally, mezzanine floors often do not require planning permission from local authorities.
The Advantages of a Mezzanine
There are many advantages to installing a mezzanine in your business premises. Mezzanines are highly efficient, quick to install and can be very profitable, maximising the space in your building.
Mezzanines are usually constructed from steel which makes them extremely strong and durable – perfect for industrial and commercial applications. They are also very versatile, and can be easily reconfigured or relocated and expanded as your business grows.
Quick to install, mezzanines can often be completed in just a few days with minimum disruption to your business operations. And because they make use of existing space within your premises, they are a very cost-effective solution.
Where can you use a Mezzanine floor?
There are a few places where you might commonly see a mezzanine floor used. One place is in a retail setting, where the mezzanine level can be used for additional storage or as office space for office spaces and staff rest rooms.
Another common place you’ll see mezzanines is in warehouses, where they can be used to create an upper level of storage.
And finally, office buildings often have mezzanines as well, which can be used for a variety of purposes such as extra storage, meeting rooms, or even residences for employees.
