How Do Warehouses Benefit from Mezzanines

Jun. 01, 2022

Warehouse mezzanines are raised sections of floor or platform installed between the floor and ceiling and are used to provide multiple uses in certain warehouse operations. They are excellent for adding storage space and workspace to your warehouse facility. We discuss how your warehouse can benefit from mezzanines.


Types of Mezzanines

Freestanding Mezzanines

A freestanding mezzanine is the type typically used to store products and additional components. It is not a necessary part of the building, but it requires a floor that can accommodate working employees and additional storage space. Freestanding mezzanines are very flexible and can accommodate pallet racking and shelving systems.

Building Column Attached Mezzanine

This type of mezzanine relies on the existing building structure to support it. This means that if you decide to install a mezzanine attached to a building column, the facility must be designed to carry or support heavy loads. This mezzanine can also be attached to a wall and place the rest of the column on the floor.

Shelf support mezzanine

If you need to store smaller items and products next to existing shelving, a shelf-supported mezzanine is ideal. You can also add more shelves for additional storage space or install a platform above for a work area.

Crowded work areas can be very dangerous. Workers should be able to move freely throughout the distribution center or warehouse without injury. Mezzanines can be used to store anything that obstructs floor space, including equipment or inventory.


Adding mezzanines can add to your footprint in a matter of weeks and save you money on expansion or warehouse relocation costs.

Easy Installation

As with many other custom solutions, modular mezzanines can be easily installed in a matter of days. They can also be dismantled and moved to other locations, as they are primarily used for temporary structures.

Increased efficiency

No one should have to walk through a crowded warehouse around equipment or boxes. It disrupts workflow, impacts productivity, and wastes a lot of valuable time. Mezzanines make better use of the working space in a warehouse facility.


Mezzanines are not permanent structures. They can be used for a variety of applications and can be easily moved or removed when needed. You may decide to use them for storage temporarily and then decide to use them for additional office space.
