2-Tier Storage Systems in warehousing

When choosing storage options for your Melbourne warehouse, a great idea to consider is a mezzanine floor. However, not all mezzanine floor designs are equal. Not only do you have the option of a regular mezzanine floor, but you can also opt for a 2-tier shelving system. In a world of high demand for speedy sales and service, effective storage has become vital to the success of any distribution warehouse. Shelving and racking systems are attracting attention in the warehousing industry. So we thought it would be ideal to take a look at the 2-tier option, to give you a better understanding of how it can contribute to your storage solutions.

2-Tier vs. Regular Mezzanine

Business owners after maximum storage capacity and easy access for staff members should seriously consider a 2-tier mezzanine design for their warehouse. Best described as extra-tall shelving, with fitted walkways between the racks, and accessed by stairs, a 2-tier system does the same job as a mezzanine floor. It exploits the otherwise wasted headroom of a warehouse, but without the need for a separate structural mezzanine level. Of course that means 2-tier designs can’t be used for office space or reception areas like regular mezzanines can. But if storage is all you need, then this type of shelving might be the ideal solution to your storage problems.


2-tier storage systems provide a high-density storage solution that can almost triple your storage space. They’re able to be relocated as well as reconfigured, and can be adapted to many different situations and locations. Most importantly, 2-tier storage systems are a simple money saving option for commercial and industrial businesses. Finding a balance between high storage capacity and affordable prices can prove challenging, but this is exactly where 2-tier shelving comes into its own. Quick to build and install, 2-tier storage systems are the perfect solution when space needs to be maximised. Their simple design utilises the racking posts for strength and rigidity. And since each level of a multi-tier storage facility is the mirror image of the ground floor layout design, the need to plan the upper level layout is eliminated.
