As the leading installer of mezzanine floors in the Home Counties area, it’s fair to say we’ve been around the block when it comes to mezzanines. We’ve noticed that the same few misconceptions arise with the majority of people who are considering having a mezzanine installed in their workplace, so in this article we’re going to bust the most common myths wide open and put those minds at ease!
A mezzanine floor can be so much more than just steel framework.
Myth 1: “It’s too complicated!”
That’s right, the most common issue people have with the idea of having a mezzanine installed in their premises is that the process is too complicated. The thing is; that’s exactly what we’re here for! We aim to take all the stress out of the job for you, from the initial ideas and designs all the way through to the final installation and beyond. You’ll never be left confused or out of the loop. Depending on exact requirements, the full process usually looks like this:
- Week 1 – We attend your site to produce a detailed survey

- Week 3 – We make any tweaks and agree general arrangement drawings
- Week 4 – We manufacture the structural steel work
- Week 5 – We install your brand new mezzanine floor
So there you have it; a simple five-step process is all it takes to increase your workspace and change your business forever.
Myth 2: “It’s too expensive!”
Ah, money. Of course, it does cost money to have a mezzanine floor installed – but probably nowhere near as much as you first thought. Every mezzanine will be different in size, height and specifications, and therefore the exact cost depends on many factors, but with our simple Fast Quote service you just provide some basic details and let our friendly experts do the rest.
Let’s cut to the chase here; if you’re running out of space for your stockholding or staff, can you really afford *not* to expand your workspace in the long run? A mezzanine will be infinitely cheaper than moving to new premises altogether.

Myth 3: “It’s not suitable for my business!”
We get it; when you think of a mezzanine, you instantly picture of a stack of blue and orange metalwork that looks like a Meccano set on steroids. Sometimes, that’s exactly what a business may require too. However, the possibilities expand way beyond this. We care deeply that we’re providing exactly what your business needs, and this included the way the final product looks. We can use materials such as glass and chrome to get your new floor looking like it’s always been part of your setup. We offer everything to go with your new mezzanine floor too, including staircases, pallet gates, handrails, goods lifts, conveyor systems, column guards, fire protection, lighting, smoke detection and much more!
There you have it; mezzanines are not as scary as people first think. Remember, we’ve been doing this for a very long time, so if you have any questions or would like to request a visit or quote, call us on 01462 484 022 now.
