Mezzanine floor – the ideal solution to expanding your storage and production facility.
If you run out of floor space – look up. An industrial mezzanine can virtually double your floorspace.
Using all available space
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.
At Cubex Contracts we also install conveyor systems and lifts to access additional levels, meaning you can virtually double (if not triple!) your industrial floor space.
Your hassle-free turnkey solution
From survey through to design, planning and building regulations to full installation, project management and handover, we manage the entire process.
Our mezzanine floor designer carries out a survey before submitting a proposal incorporating the essential features and all elements of building regulations such as fire protection, disabled access and means of escape.
We also include a disruption audit as part of all of our proposals to ensure your business experiences minimum downtime during installation.
Cubex administers the application for building regulations and any other statutory requirements.
All industrial mezzanine structures are manufactured off-site cutting down build time and therefore disruption onsite.
A typical project can be completed within 5-6 weeks of order.
If your warehouse or distribution centre needs are changing, perhaps a mezzanine floor installation could be your ideal solution? Get in touch with Cubex Contracts today and our creative design team can find the answer to your workplace woes.
“We decided to go with Cubex because we needed someone to manage the project right from the beginning all the way through to the end. This included planning, achieving building regulation standards and actually the full installation right to the handover. Cubex were very accommodating, we had some very specific requirements, for example we wanted to have as fewer number of posts on the ground floor as possible, we also wanted to have a 2-tiered mezzanine, which wasn’t the normal standard to go down. Cubex were able to accommodate us and the final result we are very happy with.”

Frequently Asked Questions About Industrial Mezzanine Flooring
We create additional floor space for clients in warehouses, factories and industrial premises for businesses who once feared they had reached their limit on space. A mezzanine floor can easily provide extra space for storage, production and logistics, making space for your business to grow without the hassle of moving premises.
Can you install more than one tier of mezzanine flooring?
A multi-tier mezzanine is a structure that offers multiple levels of flooring within a space. While a standard mezzanine gives you one extra level in your room, most multi-tier mezzanine designs offer two levels. Having said this, it is possible to add more, but it is dependent on your requirements and the space available.
What’s needed before installing a mezzanine?
All mezzanine floors need to adhere to the building code in accordance with Section 505.2 of the International Building Code (IBC). But don’t worry, Cubex Contracts will administer the building regulation on your behalf. For everything else, click here to read our blog for the what, why, where and how for mezzanine flooring.
How can I make the most of a mezzanine floor within an industrial workspace?
There are a number of uses for industrial mezzanines from automation and manufacturing, warehousing and distribution, to retail storage and communal areas for your team. Cubex Contracts can help your business utilise every inch of your existing workspace.
How much room do we need to install a mezzanine level?
Ideally the headroom height for each floor should be 2300mm.
Can we place machinery and employers on the mezzanine floor?
Absolutely! The mezzanine load rating for office space will be different from the load rating for heavy industrial use, but as an approximate guide, a standard mezzanine floor for office use is designed to take around 360kg per square metre, whereas industrial use is designed to take between 500kg (5 kPa) to 1000kg per square metre (10 kPa).
Will my business rates be affected if we install a mezzanine floor?
When a mezzanine floor is used for warehouse or storage purposes only then it does not normally attract increased rates. If however the new floor is used for office accommodation then it sometimes will affect your business rates.
How long will a mezzanine floor survey take?
The duration of a mezzanine floor survey is dependent on the size of the floor and the complexity of the project. For small mezzanines, the survey can be completed within a matter of hours, whereas larger mezzanine floor projects can take an entire day.
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.
