Mezzanines are a great warehouse feature. They can double your working space or help you easily navigate a large and bustling warehouse. To really get the most out of your mezzanine, though, you need to pick the right components. Choosing the proper components for your needs will help you make the most of your mezzanine, and make your warehouse as efficient as possible.
All flooring options for mezzanines will hold up to the wear and tear common to a warehouse, but you can go for something like diamond grip flooring for added anti-skid safety, or open bar grating if you need sprinkler penetration.
Stairs give you the option of building multi-floor mezzanines, or a mezzanine that’s up off the ground. Ramps will help make your mezzanine ADA compliant, and double staircases help when there’s a high volume of people coming and going.
Handrails are there to make sure everything, and everyone, stays on the platform. Warehouse designers can choose between two and three horizontal rail designs, or wire mesh if added security is needed.
There are a number of gate options available for mezzanines so that warehouse designers can find the perfect fit for the facility’s needs. Single or double swing gates allow for easy operation, while sliding gates are perfect for mezzanines in tighter spaces. Lift out gates are totally removable so an entry point is fully accessible for loading or unloading, while safety pivot gates allow for safe loading or unloading in a busy warehouse by opening on one side while protecting the other.
Need to get up? Why waste time taking the stairs. Head straight up to your mezzanine with a ladder. Ladders are great space savers and can help your mezzanine meet fire safety regulations by providing a secondary means of exit.
