What is a Storage Mezzanine?

In the warehousing industry, it is almost inevitable for successful operations to eventually run out of storage space. For this reason, it is important to know what a storage mezzanine is and how it can help your business. At Unitran Manufacturers LTD, we manufacture and supply a variety of material handling and storage solutions to distributors across Canada. We offer a broad range of options and accessories for storage mezzanines that will help to increase the space and efficiency of your operation.

Storage Mezzanine Basics

A mezzanine is an elevated platform that does not extend over the entire floorspace of an operation. Warehouse mezzanines can greatly increase an operation’s floor space and versatility by adding a second level of storage without cutting into the storage space at ground level. Provided that the warehouse in question has high enough ceilings to allow room for a storage mezzanine, these space savers can be manufactured to fit almost any type of operation. Mezzanines can be used for almost any application, including office space, work stations, sorting, and service areas, but the most popular use for a mezzanine is storage. There are a variety of customizable options available for mezzanines, including railing systems, shelving, and access options such as ladders and staircases.

Advantages of Mezzanines

The best reason to implement a mezzanine in your facility is to increase floor space, but there are other advantages provided by warehouse mezzanines. Mezzanines are highly versatile in that they are completely customizable. They are able to be extended or shortened if necessary and they can be made in any shape or size. If an operation needs to change locations, storage mezzanines can be disassembled and reassembled at the new jobsite. Mezzanines are an investment that will help most operations save money in the long run because they make room for more products and equipment, which can help to increase worker efficiency. An uncluttered workspace is an effective workspace. Regardless of whether it is for a warehouse, a manufacturing facility, or a retail location, a storage mezzanine can add value to your company.
