Industrial Mezzanines Corby
An industrial mezzanine can virtually double (if not triple) your workspace!
Making space for business to grow
A mezzanine floor is an additional level of flooring installed in a building that covers part or all of the main floor. Here at Cubex Contracts we love a mezzanine installation because they can suit a wide range of commercial Corby businesses in a variety of sectors, from retail to distribution and even office-based industries – you name it, you can probably mezz it!
Industrial mezzanines are incredibly popular among Corby business owners as they have a number of uses including storage, production, distribution and manufacturing. Plus, this space-creating-beauty is also a simple solution for Corby commercial business owners looking to achieve greater productivity as with an increase in space to operate from comes the ability to complete more tasks in less time.
Industrial Mezzanine Floors Corby
Industrial mezzanines floors Corby can be designed and installed to withstand the weight of heavy machinery; to do this, the weight load of a mezzanine floor is worked out on a kilonewton per square metre basis (kN/m2).
Corby business owners often ask us for advice on the weight loading of their bespoke mezzanine floor, but it depends entirely on the use of the mezzanine. As a general rule of thumb, the following weight loadings are recommended:
- 3.5kN/m2 – office use
- 4.8kN/m2 – light storage
- 7.2kN/m2 – medium storage
- 9.6kN/m2 – heavy storage
For a busy industrial warehouse in Corby, Cubex Contracts recommend a loading specification of 9.6kN/m2 to increase operational space of your workforce, equipment and heavy machinery.
As companies grow, whether that be through employee headcount or production equipment (or both!), the impacts that a lack of space has can be a big challenge to overcome. From day-to-day operations to health and safety regulations, a limited workspace brings its frustrations, but not every business is aware of their own workspace potential and the time and money they could save with an industrial mezzanine floor installation. Here’s how an industrial mezzanine floorcould benefit your business:
- Manufacturing: avoid the need to cram packaging and storage onto one level and streamline your operations to manufacture products safely and efficiently across different floors.
- Distribution: increase your operational workspace to absorb more products to, in turn, boost profits.
- Retail: a mezzanine floor offers a private space for customers to browse products and then liaise with your sales team away from the hustle and bustle of the shop floor.
Generally speaking, no formal planning permission is required to install an industrial mezzanine floor. And speaking of installation, a mezzanine doesn’t take long to erect either. In fact, depending on your business requirements, Cubex Contracts can install a mezzanine floor in just one day so you’ll be back to work in no time!
It’s no secret that industrial space is expensive, but by installing a single or multi-tier mezzanine you can significantly increase your storage or production space without the fuss or hefty cost of moving premises – and when a mezzanine is used for warehouse or storage purposes, it doesn’t normally incur increased business rate charges. In fact, if you rent your premises after your mezzanine is installed then it’s considered a rent-free space because the cost of your rent per square metre is significantly reduced.
With clearly defined and designated areas for storage space, production and distribution, additional meeting rooms or customer-facing zones, your industrial workforce can fulfil day-to-day duties without encroaching on one another’s space – and you might even find that with another floor you’re able to increase employee headcount to further support your business’ growing return on investment (ROI) too… doesn’t that sound good?

Our Case Studies
Larsson wanted to maximise their new space as much as possible in order to increase their stock levels and ultimately enable them to fulfil orders for their customers quicker. In line with a mezzanine floor they were also investigating workflow efficiencies with having their high turnover goods stored on the ground floor.
After approaching several companies, Larsson appointed Cubex Contracts because they wanted a contractor who could manage the whole project from start to finish, including the building regulation procedures and install the necessary fire protection.
