We’ve discussed before how mezzanines are a sensible solution for many different kinds of facilities. A mezzanine floor utilizes the vertical space of your facility to create a new level of horizontal space. This new level is inexpensive in comparison to moving to a larger building, easy to install, and can be used in a multitude of different functions. What are the possibilities for a new mezzanine floor for your facility? Here are just a few of the ways you can make use of a mezzanine floor!
One of the most common ways a mezzanine floor is used is to free up space on the main floor, usually by turning the mezzanine floor into a storage space. Often, this solution is more robust for warehouses than simply adding racking and shelving and allows you to put your valuable ground floor space to more productive use.
Many businesses operate their warehouses on a seasonal basis – for instance, distribution centers for major retail networks will clearly be much busier during the holiday season than at any other point of the year. Therefore, distribution centers need to be able to adapt to the changing needs of the business during on and off-peak times, and a mezzanine floor is a sound solution to this problem.
As business picks up, your manpower needs will increase as well. But where do you base your staff when you run out of usable office space? A mezzanine floor, combined with modular offices, can help you adapt to the needs of your company by providing additional office space for your growing workforce!
The word in the manufacturing world these days is productivity. Facilities with more efficient processes that make the most out of their physical space are in a better position to be successful than those who don’t. Mezzanine floors are an integral component towards streamlining your workflow and making the production process as efficient as possible.
