Mezzanines are a cost effective solution to add additional capacity to a warehouse or distribution center by utilizing vertical space. They are typically more affordable than building renovations and can adjust as your operations grow.
Mezzanines can be designed to meet specific framing options, safety codes, access point requirements, flooring types, and product loading and unloading operations. Additionally, a mezzanine design takes into account all possible load requirements including dead loads (anything permanent on the mezzanine) and live loads (pallet jacks, people standing and walking, etc.).

Free Standing Mezzanines
Also known as a structural mezzanine, free standing mezzanine allows for maximum use of floor and mezzanine level space. It provides easy assembly and disassembly and the wide-span design allows traffic flow under platform. It is ideal for parts and product storage as well as conveyor support.
Rack Supported Mezzanine
This style provides additional storage areas above or between pallet racks. Also known as catwalks. Allows for multiple loading and unloading locations of pallets simultaneously within racking systems.
Shelving Supported Mezzanine
This is an ideal option for expanding storage of smaller items above shelving. The shelving serves as a base for the mezzanine. It is an economical way to expand existing space, but least flexible for reconfiguration.
