Self-Storage Unit Construction


We design, manufacture and install structural steelwork, multi-level mezzanine floorsstaircases, fire protection and lift shaft steelwork for self-storage companies. We also have the capability to supply and install individual self-storage units.

Mezzanine Floors For Self-Storage

We have been building and installing mezzanine floors in self-storage buildings since 1999 when the industry seriously expanded in the UK. Since then we have completed projects for many major self-storage operators including The Big Yellow Self Storage Company.

By installing a multi-tier mezzanine floor you can maximise the profitability of your building, using all the space from cladding to cladding and from floor to ceiling. A structural steel mezzanine with a timber deck is the most economical way to add additional levels to a building.

All of our mezzanine floors allow a choice of finishes to ensure the correct one for you. Our team of experts is on hand to suggest the most appropriate options and design a bespoke mezzanine floor to meet the needs of your business.

Staircases for Self-Storage

Multi-tier, industrial staircases for access or fire escape use, are supplied with a balustrade or wall handrails fitted to meet the required layout and the latest regulations. Painted or powder-coated finishes are available as standard. Galvanized or painted treads with contrasting nosings for safety purposes are also an option, particularly for external escape staircases.

Passive Fire Protection

In conjunction with the self-storage mezzanines and other systems we supply and install, we are able to offer a comprehensive range of passive fire protection systems suitable for self-storage businesses. These range from galvanised or decorative column casings to boarded or lay-in ceiling systems and spray-applied protective coatings.

Lift Shafts for Self-Storage

Steel lift shafts can be incorporated as part of the mezzanine floor and are clad in a shaft wall system which gives full 60 minute fire protection. Concrete lift shafts can be clad with a decorative plasterboard finish to the front of the lifts.

Self-Storage Unit Manufacturers

Our experienced fabrication team can manufacture the individual storage units for your facility, to meet your corporate style and specification.

Self-Storage Unit Creation

To create your self-storage facility we provide our UNISCREEN 2000 Unit Partitioning System, including white external walls and grey internal walls, which incorporates either swing or roller shutter doors or a combination of both to suit your facility‚Äôs requirements. In addition, we carry out the fabrication and installation of internal fittings including trolley bays and protective bollards to protect lifts and other areas from damage from trolleys.

Office Space

Column free areas can be provided as part of your self-storage facility giving you a reception area or open-plan office space without a forest of legs. Space can then be used for your team or rented to small businesses as serviced offices, giving you maximum flexibility and the opportunity to offer additional services to your customers.

Plasterboard walls can be protected by means of a chequer plate lining.

Self-Storage Design

Our team can provide layouts and designs for your self-storage units and your mezzanine floor to meet your specifications. We are also happy to work with architects to manufacture the internal fittings to their designs.
