What is a mezzanine floor?
A mezzanine floor is an intermediate, or mid-level, floor constructed between main floors of a building. The word mezzanine is an adaptation of the Italian word ‘mezzano’, which translates in English as ‘middle’. Mezzanines are not counted as an ‘official’ floor in a building because they could, in theory, be knocked out without affecting the overall structure of a building. More often than not a mezzanine floor resembles a very large balcony and normally has a low ceiling. Mezzanines do not generally have their own ceiling; they share the ceiling of the space the mezzanine is located in. In theatres this could be in an atrium and the mezzanine could be the ‘balcony-style’ upper floor which leads to the theatre seating areas. Often, the first few rows of seats in a theatre balcony are referred to as the ‘mezzanine’ – and generally offers an unrestricted view of the stage or performance area.
What uses do industrial mezzanines have?
Mezzanine floor suppliers often find themselves busy constructing floors for industrial use. Specifically for industrial applications, mezzanine floor suppliers construct a semi-permanent system between two permanent floors; however, mezzanine floor suppliers are also commonly instructed to build mezzanine floors in high ceiling, single storey industrial buildings such as steel-constructed warehouses. This creates valuable additional storage space and in some cases can be used to house offices or other departments which would benefit from being located separately to busy warehousing or workshop areas.
