An industrial mezzanine is an intermediate floor or platform installed between the ground-level and the ceiling of a facility. They can be free-standing, using pre-installed support columns, or supported by either existing support structures or racking/shelving. Typically constructed from rugged steel, mezzanines are highly customizable to meet the demands of your unique warehouse needs. Additionally, businesses have the option of adding additional features like stairways for access, safety railings or lift/conveyor systems for streamlined inventory movement.
Warehouse mezzanines consist of structural components with an elevated platform. This platform includes flooring, often either steel grating, concrete or composite materials depending on the application. Sturdy and reliable, these robust steel structures easily add additional working, office, storage or manufacturing space.
Trying to picture a mezzanine on your warehouse floor? Let’s review a
few key benefits of these versatile structures.
Certainly, the most obvious benefit is the addition of extra working space. Mezzanines effectively double the usable floor space in your warehouse without the need for relocation or expansion.
Compared to a full-scale relocation or expansion, mezzanine construction costs are relatively low. This is especially the case if you choose to source a high-quality used mezzanine.
Mezzanines can separate worker traffic from heavy machinery traffic. Most warehouse mezzanines also have other safety features like guardrails and enclosed access stairways.
Some industrial mezzanines can be disassembled and relocated, depending on the type, construction and other factors like decking style. If you have any questions about a specific mezzanine in our inventory or are curious about installation, connect with our team.

From free-standing to catwalk, you’ll find several different types of mezzanines as well as mezzanine components in our inventory. To help you make the most informed buying decision, let’s take a look at those different types of used mezzanines now.
Free-standing mezzanines, also known as structural or clear-span mezzanines, are a great, cost-effective solution for adding storage to your warehouse or distribution center. Unlike other mezzanine types like rack-supported mezzanines, they rely on structural columns for support.
Rack-supported mezzanines typically utilize pallet racking frames for support instead of traditional mezzanine columns. The exception would be if the mezzanine floor needs to support a higher weight capacity – then it would be reinforced with mezzanine columns.
Shelving-supported mezzanines use boltless shelving components or rack uprights to support the structure while maximizing your storage area. Shelving-supported mezzanines, like rack-supported configurations, are very cost-effective and offer added shelf storage which can be used in many different ways.
Catwalk mezzanines deliver an efficient solution to help workers move through your facility without interrupting the workflow down on the floor. They are used in many different applications, from directing worker traffic to offering viewing platforms for upper management.

Adding any equipment to your warehouse or distribution center floor can be a big decision. When it comes to warehouse mezzanines, what do you need to know before you make a purchase?
Always evaluate your current space before making any purchases. Mezzanines are the perfect piece of equipment for adding extra usable vertical space, but you need to make sure you have the clearance first. Local building codes may also influence space concerns.
Make sure you always understand your local, state and federal regulations regarding warehouse safety. For example, when it comes to mezzanines and vertical clearance, you need to ensure there is enough space for a fire suppression system.

One of the primary advantages of mezzanines is their ability to make use of otherwise unused vertical space. With a mezzanine, your business can effectively double its available space without having to move to a larger facility or incur the expense of new construction. This can be particularly valuable for businesses that are operating in areas where real estate prices are high or where zoning restrictions make it difficult to expand horizontally.
Another advantage of mezzanines is their flexibility. They can be customized to meet the specific needs of a business, whether it's adding a simple storage platform or creating a complex multi-level workspace. Mezzanines can be designed to fit virtually any space, and they can be configured to accommodate a wide range of equipment and storage solutions.
Because of this flexibility, mezzanines can be used for a wide variety of applications. For example, businesses in the retail industry can use mezzanines to create additional sales floor space or storage areas. Warehouses and distribution centers can use mezzanines to increase storage capacity, allowing them to handle more inventory without needing to expand their existing facilities. Mezzanines can also be used in manufacturing facilities to create additional workspace, production areas or assembly lines.
