Mezzanine floors are an excellent way to increase productive work space in a warehouse, without the cost of moving to a new location. With goods being stored below a mezzanine as well as on the mezzanine floor itself, it is an excellent way of maximising warehouse space. Mezzanine floors can be a good solution for lost space within a warehouse, wherever the full height of the building is not already being utilised. For example; a mezzanine can be installed over the top of an office space,above a parking area for Material Handling Vehicles, or over an area of low shelving.
Warehouse mezzanines can have a wide range of uses. Some businesses use a mezzanine for additional pallet storage. Mezzanines can also be used as an excellent picking and packing area, or even an over-warehouse office – keeping administration staff on the same site as the warehouse. Some warehouses opt to use a mezzanine as a staff area, with a small kitchen, facilities and a rest room. This gives personnel the opportunity to take their breaks away from the warehouse floor. All these options allow a warehouse to gain more space for important activities, without taking away from the storage area of the warehouse floor.
