Mezzanines and Platforms

When was the last time you took an honest look at the performance of your warehouse? If it’s been a while, it’s time to start thinking about the equipment and products you use. Southwest Warehouse Solutions works closely with a number of industry-leading providers across the country to ensure we always have the elevated storage platforms you need. Make the most of your space today by modernizing your storage and work platforms.
There’s no need to move into a bigger building. By maximizing your mezzanine floor, you’ll have all the floor space you need with minimum hassle. With structural mezzanines, you can optimize the space you already have.
Catwalks are steel mezzanines that create aisles above your warehouse’s racks and shelves. You and your employees can use catwalks to oversee operations in the floor areas while leaving space for storage on the ground.
A shelf-supported mezzanine sits on top of shelves that hold small items in your warehouse. They work well when you need a platform in a specific part of the building, away from pallet racks and other high-traffic areas.
These storage mezzanines use pallet racks to support them in place of structural legs. They create extra floor space by placing industrial work platforms around your racks. That way, you save square footage around your racks, and your employees have industrial mezzanines where they can access the products on the racks.
An elevated work platform is similar to a mezzanine. The key difference is that a work platform is a free-standing piece of equipment that you can move to reach certain spaces in your warehouse, while a mezzanine is a platform that’s permanently installed in a specific location. You can attach a work platform to a specific machine or limited-access area, and its uses are more flexible than a mezzanine.
You may be wondering if you need these installations in your warehouse or distribution center. How much open floor space do you need to run your operations smoothly? How much open floor space do you currently have? A mezzanine or industrial work platform could double the space on your warehouse floor if implemented properly. They keep your ground-floor aisles clear and give your employees multiple ways to reach products and oversee your facility’s operations.
To decide which type of installation your facility needs, consider how you want to use it. If you want a piece of equipment you can move freely around your facility, choose a work platform. If you want a permanent installation that opens up space on the platform and on your facility’s ground floor, choose a mezzanine. But which specific type of mezzanine is the best fit for your warehouse? Consult with Southwest Warehouse Solutions to find out.
