Can I Add a Second Tier To My Mezzanine Floor?



Mezzanine flooring is an intermediate, elevated sub-floor between two main floors of a building. Within a warehouse, it is an effective way to increase storage and space by offering the utilization of unused vertical space that exists in your facility. The versatile nature of Mezzanine flooring, whereby it can be used for a variety of different purposes and adapted to fit the needs of your warehouse, makes it a popular contender amongst those seeking to maximise space.


There’s certainly a reason why mezzanine installations are so popular for people that wish to make room for their businesses to continue to grow – their adaptable nature makes them stand out from the rest, allowing for additional installation of mezzanine tiers.

A standard mezzanine gives you one extra level in your storage space, but if you invest in a multi-tier mezzanine design, then it is possible to have two or more levels; depending on your storage requirements and the space available in your warehouse.

This self-supporting structure offers a flexible solution to your warehouse problems – providing a versatile solution as your needs and requirements change. Adding a second tier to your mezzanine floor offers a lot less hassle than relocating, so if your storage space allows, then this could certainly be the ideal storage solution for you.


Extending…

Because of the nature of the build of mezzanine flooring, it can indeed be adapted, extended and even relocated. This is because it’s an independent, free-standing structure. Naturally this has many benefits: not just can the storage space be extended as your storage requirements increase, but its adaptable nature means that it can change with the changing needs of your warehouse.


Particularly in warehouses with high-ceilinged spaces, adding a second tier and adapting your mezzanine floor allows you to take full advantage of a room’s height, and can be used for a multitude of purposes. These benefits explain why mezzanine floor is often viewed as one of the most cost-effective ways of increasing space, whilst adding value.

Most commonly, the designs of a multi-tier mezzanine floor gives you one extra level in your warehouse, however, two levels is not the limit and you can request more depending on your requirements (and the space available, of course).


But…

There are certain requirements that must be adhered to before considering adding another tier to your mezzanine floor. It is only possible to safely install another floor if the details are available from the original manufacturer so that we are aware of what the floor can take. Without this information, the safety within your warehouse may be compromised.


The answer is yes, but only when…

An important fact to establish if you are considering adding a second tier to your mezzanine floor is that the bottom floor must be made to the correct weight loadings to ensure that the structure is strong enough to add a second story. A stronger bottom floor is required to hold the weight of a double/triple tier to ensure its stability, so first, this requirement must be met.
