What is a supply-only mezzanine?
A mezzanine is an elevated platform and offers a great way to make use of the extra vertical space in your facility. They are usually located between the floor and ceiling and can be freestanding or attached to walls. Mezzanines can be made out of roll-formed or structural steel, and there are many different types of floors available. Supply only mezzanines are not just used in industrial settings – they can also be used in retail stores, restaurants, sports facilities, and gyms.
A supply-only mezzanine is essentially no different to a mezzanine, as described above. The difference is that companies like us will supply and install your mezzanine following all safety guidelines and regulations, but a supply-only mezzanine will offer you the mezzanine parts you need without the team required to fit the mezzanine. This means that you are responsible for installing your own mezzanine and ensuring it follows guidelines and is safe for use.
Whilst it may sound concerning to have your mezzanine delivered in parts with the responsibility to erect it yourself, there are actually many benefits to purchasing supply-only mezzanines – if you have the ability to put it up safely in your own time. This month, Mezz One give you all the benefits
How can mezzanine installation help your business?
One of the main benefits of a mezzanine is the extra storage space it provides. By having the mezzanine floor up in the air, you can still use the space underneath it while also having all the extra room that the mezzanine provides. If your warehouse is running out of room and you have tall ceilings, it can be easier and more cost-effective to add a mezzanine than to move to a new building or have construction done on your current one. Shelving and other storage units can go on the mezzanine to take advantage of all that previously unused space.
Your mezzanine can be designed specifically for your warehouse and is easy to install and flexible to move or add to later. You can work with existing machinery and equipment to make the most efficient use of your space. Stairs, lift gates, and pallet drop zones can be added depending on how you are using the mezzanine. Mezzanine floors are the perfect way to add some extra space to your office, whether you need it for more room, shelving, or storage. The installation is simple and won’t disrupt your business at all – meaning there are no downtime or relocation costs necessary.
Mezzanine floors are a great way to make better use of the total floor area available in your premises. They can be made to be fireproof, with suspended ceilings and additional lighting, including anything else you might need. They can also come with pallet gates for easy loading and unloading, bespoke staircases, various barriers or handrails, and can be colour-coded to match your company’s colour scheme.
Why should you purchase a supply-only mezzanine?
Many businesses across the UK are looking for ways to save on their outgoings and to protect their staff and assets. At the same time, many businesses need to expand, and it can be challenging to weigh up the costs between having a mezzanine installed and increasing your business space whilst knowing that you are going to have to pay to have this addition. That’s why supply-only mezzanines offer you the best of both worlds. Increase your floor space and business capacity whilst you save on not having a mezzanine-qualified team onsite to install the mezzanine on your behalf.
Wait for installation
If you have found the perfect mezzanine solution for your business, you may be considering purchasing it now to avoid waiting in the future. However, if you don’t need the extra space now, or it will cause disruption to your working hours that you cannot afford to lose, choosing the supply-only mezzanines option will ensure you have your mezzanine parts onsite when you need it without having your installation completed straight away.
Future proof your business
Similarly to our first point, businesses are trying to save money whilst trying to expand their businesses. If you know you are likely to need that extra space in the future, why not safeguard your business now and purchase your mezzanine whilst you have the funds available – even if you don’t require the extra space? Simply store your mezzanine materials safely until you need them and future-proof your business.
Receive all the benefits of a traditional mezzanine
A supply-only mezzanine is no different to a traditional supply-and-fit mezzanine – you just don’t have the workmen on site to erect it on your behalf. Your business will still reap all the rewards of a mezzanine without the expense and time taken for a team to install the mezzanine on your behalf!
