If you are considering a mezzanine floor design for your warehouse, chances are your business is doing something right. Typically the reasons for considering mezzanine flooring solutions are linked to business growth and include:
The benefits of installing a mezzanine level are significant and open up a range of options to improve storage efficiency, offer better space functionality and allow your business to keep growing .
Here is a scenario. When you first moved into your current premises it was perfect, or in the ideal location. Now however, you have acquired more stock and need more space to store it. In addition to stock growth, you also have more staff and need a meeting room, training room, or more office space. Daily warehouse tasks have changed as well, you need more room to pack boxes or prepare goods, and you do not want to lose valuable storage or office space to accommodate. The simple option here would be to move, right? Just because you have outgrown your current premises, doesn’t mean you have to move. Not if you have vertical space you can utilise. Adding in a Mezzanine Floor or Mezzanine Office to utilise that vertical space, is a much more efficient and stress-free plan.
So you have decided to stay where you are, or maybe you are about to move into new premises and are looking for ways to make the new space work for your production processes. You have the vertical space and you ask yourself, why not just add a second floor? Installing a second floor opens you up to more paperwork if you just need extra storage space. Dynamic mezzanines are demountable, which means they can be freestanding, decreasing the likelihood of the need for a permit. A second floor also increases the flexibility of your space. Dynamic mezzanines are modular, so they can be sized and placed where they would be more efficiently utilised, instead of blanket coverage and inefficient use of space.
By utilising off site manufacturing options as much as possible, mezzanine floor solutions save production downtime. And because you won’t have to spend time looking for new premises, or continuing to search, you also save on your own management time. The mezzanine floor solution means less paperwork untangling from one lease or property sale, only to be tied up with another. And there are savings to be made on moving costs, including clean up expenses and the logistical costs of moving stock, equipment, and staff. Finally, if you are in an ideal spot, or have found the perfect site, incorporating raised platforms and office areas will mean you may not have to compromise on location.
The question of whether to go with mezzanine floor design or not, is valid. However, when you consider the efficiency and practicality of installing a raised platform or office space, then the answer is clear.
