How to Get the Most Out of Your Mezzanine

How to get the most out of your mezzanine

At Commander Warehouse, we know that most business owners who work in or own a warehouse will eventually reach the point where they start to run out of space. That is why we carry a selection of mezzanines that are a cost-effective solution for space management problems. Here are some simple tips on how to get the most out of your mezzanine, so that you can utilize this warehouse product to the fullest extent.

Usage Expectations

Having a solid plan in place for how you are planning to use your mezzanine in the context of your warehouse’s needs will help determine many aspects in the designing stage of the project. For instance, some companies install mezzanines for additional administrative office space, while others use them for excess storage capacity. Some companies may even use mezzanines strictly to meet seasonal demands.

Slab Capacity

Mezzanines are designed to handle a specific load capacity, so it is important to ensure that the slab capacity of your warehouse exceeds the load capacity of the mezzanine itself. This means that you should be prepared to have your slab and soil analyzed before having the mezzanine installed. You should also consider choosing a mezzanine that can carry more weight than what you need at the moment in order to ensure that you have the potential for added capacity down the road.

Layout Considerations

The expert installation team from Commander Warehouse can help you design a new mezzanine that fits the layout of your main floor, while still following any and all building code and safety regulations. We can even outfit your mezzanine with safety accessories, such as mezzanine handrails and gates.

More Space for Products

Mezzanines are a very popular and effective solution for adding additional storage space by allowing you to utilize the empty space above you in your warehouse without losing the valuable space on the ground floor. This, essentially, gives you the opportunity to double your existing storage space.

Creating an Office Space

Nowadays, when warehouse owners are looking to add additional office space, they look toward implementing an office mezzanine floor. Compared to other solutions, mezzanine floors are considerably more cost effective and have the extra bonus of being transportable if you do decide to move to another location in the future. Mezzanines also offer quick installation and take down, and are designed to accommodate a wide range of requirements.
