Mezzanines are an increasingly trending floor solution for businesses looking to expand their current levels of usable floor space. More warehouses and distribution centers are realizing the benefits of in-plant mezzanines than ever before, and their use has become more eminent across a number of industries.
Have you been looking for a way to increase the amount of floor space your facility has without a costly factory renovation, or maybe you’re just considering a mezzanine but need to be a little more convinced of their benefits? Here is what to consider:
Easy increase in floor space
The most common and obvious benefit of having a mezzanine installed is the increase of usable floor space. Unlike more permanent renovations, mezzanines allow you to easily add on a substantial amount of extra usable floor space for storage, work room or whatever else your requirement. It’s a perfect way to prevent having to spend time or money moving into a new facility or renovating or relocating your current installations.
Also, mezzanines allow you to add more space without greatly affecting your budget. Increasing floor space can allow you to store more items, install more equipment, and even have room for additional workers, without having to move facilities. Mezzanines can also help with heating and utility bills: installations on the upper floor don’t need to be heated like the rest of the plant due to warm air rising through the plant, so moving more temperature-sensitive installations to the top floor of the plant can reduce the amount of heat your warehouse has to pump out.
Increased productivity and efficiency
One of the more ‘intangible’ benefits of mezzanine shelving is probably one of the most advantageous to business owners. The increase of floor space and the extra work room it provides can help your workers get things done easily and more quickly than before. Uncluttered shop floors can help prevent traffic jams and accidents, and with the additional space, you won’t have constraints.
