3 Popular Uses for Warehouse Mezzanines
Warehouse mezzanines of all types can be used in the following ways to great effect:
1. Product Storage
Mezzanines are a great way to increase storage space for your operation, allowing you to store more products, parts, or materials in a safe location for easy retrieval. This is especially true for rack-supported units as they include several shelves for better organization and efficiency. All mezzanines can also be equipped with a variety of gates, allowing workers to use forklifts to place heavy materials and palletized goods on the top level. This allows you to use the lower level of the mezzanine for smaller items while the top level can be used for large products or other goods.
2. Assembly Areas/General Work Areas
For most operations, additional storage space often comes at the expense of existing operating space. By installing a mezzanine, you can create additional storage space on the bottom while preserving the same assembly area/general workspace on top. Alternatively, you can use both levels as a space for assembly, detailed work, packaging/staging, and other relevant tasks. This allows you to maintain the same level of productivity or increase productivity based on your needs and preferences.
Most types of mezzanines can be fully enclosed by installing walls around the top level. This allows operations to create additional office space for floor supervisors or logistics coordinators, placing them in a location that is ideal for their responsibilities. This gives you the freedom to place an office wherever you wish in your facility without sacrificing existing storage or workspace.
