REB Storage Systems International’s VP of Business Development Matt Myers was recently interviewed as an authority on mezzanines for Modern Materials Handling’s article “Mezzanines: The Space Race”. The article, which is in the December 2016 issue, discusses options, safety precautions, and other considerations when implementing a mezzanine.
In the article, Matt offers advice on properly designing and installing a mezzanine. Additionally, he provides examples on how mezzanines can optimize a company’s operation. One such example in the article states:
“One customer recently built an extremely large mezzanine hung entirely from the roof,” says Myers, “It definitely cost more than a floor-supported structure, but the mezzanine was located above the shipping operation, where it was important for the customer to maintain a free and clear environment,” Myers says. “They had the foresight to realize it was better to have flexibility with the shipping layout than have columns in the way. For a building with a 30-year life, it is best to plan for change.”
