As a business grows, additional space is needed to accommodate this expansion. Unfortunately, adding on to a building is often an expensive investment that can halt operations for an extended period of time. One way to add space to your building while avoiding an addition is a warehouse mezzanine system. Mezzanines are a cost-effective solution that add additional capacity to a warehouse or distribution center by utilizing vertical space.
Warehouse mezzanine systems are designed to meet specific framing options, load specifications, safety codes, access point requirements, flooring type, product loading, and unloading operations, and other key considerations.
Warehouse Mezzanine System Options
There are a few mezzanine system options available, and which is right for you highly depends on your mezzanine application and building layout.
