In this video you will learn about mezzanines including what types are available, component options, and ideal uses.
Hi and welcome to this edition of Total Warehouse Tutorials. In this video you will learn about mezzanines.
Mezzanines are a cost effective solution to add additional capacity to a warehouse or distribution center by utilizing vertical space. They are widely used because they are typically more affordable than building renovations and can adjust as your operations grow.
Flooring options for mezzanines include resin board which is supported by corrugated decking, bar grating, open steel planking, concrete, and checker plate steel.
Other integrated component options for mezzanines include staircases, handrails, gates, conveyors, lighting, and sprinklers.
There are a number of mezzanine types to choose from based on your storage and material handling needs.
A freestanding mezzanine, also known as a structural mezzanine, allows for maximum use of floor and mezzanine level space. This type of mezzanine provides easy assembly and disassembly and allows for traffic flow under the platform. It is ideal for product storage, operation staging areas as well as a support for conveyors or modular offices.
A rack supported mezzanine, often known as a catwalk system, provides additional storage areas above or between pallet racks. This type of mezzanine is ideal for pallet storage, it allows for loading and unloading of multiple pallets simultaneously within the racking system.
In a shelving supported mezzanine, shelving serves as the base. This is an ideal option for expanding storage of smaller items. This type of mezzanine is an economical way to expand existing space but is the least flexible mezzanine option for reconfiguration.
