Space is at a premium in warehouses. Your business relies on storing and transporting stock, often meaning that your shelves are filled from floor to ceiling. If you’re running out of space in your work area, don’t start looking at real estate listings just yet. There are many ways to create extra space out of thin air, and Erect-A-Rack suggests mezzanine floors as an ideal solution.
Mezzanine floors are an elevated platform that allows you to utilise previously vacant ceiling space. A staple in most split-level retail stores nowadays, installing a mezzanine floor means that you are able to create a new storage area or a workspace without needing to hire an offsite shed or move warehouses entirely.
Storage space is worth more than gold in warehouses, and mezzanine floors create two areas to hold more items. By elevating the floor off the ground, you are able to store products underneath the floor, whilst also shelving more items on top of it. Consider the items you’ll need to store on top of the mezzanine, as the predicted weight will affect the style and design. With Erect-A-Rack, we are able to easily customise mezzanine floors to suit your requirements. You can choose 1-3 levels at heights of your choosing, and you can opt for timber or steel finish on the floors.
A separate workstation
If your staff need more areas to perform their duties in, consider mezzanine floors as a separate workspace. Either for everyday tasks or as an alternative to the cramped offices of many warehouses, mezzanine floors offer an open and airy workstation that can easily be accessed or secured as needed. Their flexibility extends to being transformed into more central facilities – a mezzanine area could become a kitchen or bathrooms that are more accessible to workers from all areas of the warehouse – they won’t have to walk all the way from one end to the other just to get a drink, or to use the toilet.
