Benefits of Using Mezzanines in Your Warehouse

Making the most of your warehouse space is essential to maximizing your warehouses capacity. Don’t waste valuable space; make use of it by integrating mezzanines into your warehouse layout. Mezzanines can provide a wide range of benefits to your operations.

What is a Mezzanine System? Benefits of Using Mezzanines in Your Warehouse

In very simple terms a mezzanine system is a new floor level installed in between the floor of the building and the ceiling. It can also be a type of raised platform used to support equipment above an existing manufacturing process or work space. Mezzanines are free standing, meaning they are not supported by the building structure rather it has its own support columns. This allows the mezzanine to be placed almost anywhere in any size that you desire.

Typically, mezzanines used in warehouses or other industrial applications are made from carbon or stainless steel and come in a variety of decking and flooring options to meet the needs of your application.

Benefits of Adding a Mezzanine to Your Warehouse

As your operations grow, you may find that you are running out of space. With the addition of mezzanines, you can create more floor space. This enables you to maintain your operations in your current warehouse. This eliminates the need for you to move your operations to another facility. Given the low per square foot price of constructing a mezzanine compared to cost of building a new building, it is much cheaper and often far more productive to construct a mezzanine than move your operations to a new location.

A mezzanine allows you to utilize all available space in your warehouse. It can be installed above production areas, offices, packaging areas, and loading docks. Using the unproductive space above these areas will improve your ROI.
