If you’re beginning to outgrow your warehouse or are simply looking to take advantage of unused vertical space, mezzanines might be the product you’re looking for.
Mezzanines are elevated floors or platforms that stand on large, steel support legs. Since they’re generally free-standing, it’s easy to disassemble them and move them around your warehouse as needed. They can be built to fit nearly any area, so they’re the perfect solution if you’re looking to add extra floor space or storage without having to move to a larger location or add on to your existing facility.
The longer you’re in your space, the harder it becomes to use the cube footage efficiently. Businesses inevitably experience crowding and disorganization as they grow, often forcing owners to consider moving to a larger facility. However, mezzanines can:
Mezzanine platforms can be outfitted with a number of different flooring types, like steel gratings, metal decking, wood flooring, b-decking, and even concrete based on your needs. Mezzanines are strong and can support nearly any sort of equipment you might place on top of them, meaning that you can use mezzanines like you would any other floor space in your warehouse. You can extend assembly lines, house other manufacturing equipment, or create workspaces or elevated office areas. The value and utility of a mezzanine are only limited by your imagination.
Storage space is always at a premium in any warehouse, particularly if you don’t, or can’t use racking systems to hold your inventory. Mezzanines let you take advantage of all the wasted vertical space that exists in most facilities, essentially allowing you to add a second floor to your warehouse space without the high cost. By moving storage onto a mezzanine, you can also free up your ground-level space.
Mezzanines are far less costly than moving to a new location, can start small and then expand as your business grows, and can allow you to stay in your current space far longer than you normally could by utilizing all available space.

A warehouse mezzanine is a platform or section of the floor that is installed above ground but below the ceiling to provide more space and viability in a storage operation. It isn't a necessary part of the building and can be disassembled to move elsewhere within the warehouse to provide many uses for storage and retrieval.
Having a mezzanine floor installed in your warehouse means you can use more of the space you own or rent. Without adding or extending to the property you will be enhancing your storage space while utilizing the most of your warehouse area.
The minimum height for a mezzanine floor from the ceiling is 400 centimeters, which approximately converts to 14 feet between the roof and the ground. This is the standard setting for an efficient mezzanine system. Regardless of the function of the mezzanine, this is the usual height distance you build to.
