Mezzanine flooring is an effective way to make good use of any free vertical space available in your warehouse. Warehouses typically have very limited usable floor space, due to much of the area often being taken up by your storage solutions, such as racking and shelving.
By using the vertical space with the installation of mezzanine flooring, you can not only make it less congested on the main floor, but also give yourself additional space to use. If you are considering the prospect of mezzanine floors but need more convincing, we've included several of the key benefits of utilising this set up in a warehouse environment.
Improved and Expanded Storage Space
The installation of mezzanine flooring in a warehouse can give you the extra storage space you need to cope with your current level of business, while also offering you the chance to expand. When planned and built by experts, mezzanines can increase the available space you have without impacting on the ongoing operations below.
Increase the Value of Your Warehouse
It doesn't matter if you rent your warehouse from someone or own it yourself. When you add a mezzanine floor to it, you can add real value to the property. This is great if you ever come to consider putting it on the market to sell or are looking to rent it out to someone else. A warehouse with this additional usable space will be a big hit with buyers now and in the future.

No Need to Move Premises
As companies become more successful, many consider the prospect of moving to a new location - particularly in the manufacturing, logistics and warehousing sectors. That can obviously be very expensive, can cause upheaval, and can disturb business operations. With the installation of mezzanine flooring, however, you can remain in the same building, while continuing to expand and meet the growing demand of your customers and clients.
Integrate Your Business
There can often be something of a disconnect between the different departments of an organisation or business, especially if the warehouses are situated in one place, with office and administration staff at another. By building a mezzanine in your warehouse, you can bring different parts of your business together within close proximity of each other. This can lead to better integration between the different departments, which in turn makes for a more productive environment.
Fully Maximise Operational Efficiency
Having a mezzanine floor installed in your warehouse means you can use more of the space you own or rent. This means you will essentially be increasing the business value of a property, by keeping the cost the same but increasing capacity and storage. In the long term, this can also help avoid the need to move to a bigger property, or even consider opening an additional property.
Staff Rest and Recreation Room
Do your warehouse staff currently have their own space to sit and have their lunch or coffee/tea breaks? Or, do they have to sit at their workstation or go to another part of your business premises for the canteen? If space has always been the issue, a mezzanine could be used to provide your hard-working warehouse team with a place to sit, relax and refuel. If applicable to your industry and the vertical space you have available, you could even consider additional toilets or a washroom.
