Having a Mezzanine Installed is a great way for businesses to maximize their available space and to provide valuable upper Deck Storage. In an Industrial or Warehouse application, Mezzanines are semi-permanent Floor Systems typically installed within buildings, built between two permanent original stories or in a high ceiling warehouse. These structures are generally free standing and can be easily dismantled and relocated. The Floor or Decking of a Mezzanine will vary by different application but is usually made up of Roof Decking with a Plywood Top to provide a smooth surface able to roll pallet jacks or hand trucks across. They also are commonly built with a bar grating or perforated metal decking.
Mezzanines are frequently used in shops or similar working environments for the storage of tools, products or other materials. They are also ideal for placing an office either on top of the structure or below. Industrial operations such as Warehouses, Distribution Centers or Manufacturing Plants often use Mezzanines to allow utilization of unused space within the vertical cube because of high ceilings. Industrial mezzanine structures are typically either structural, roll formed, rack-supported, or shelf-supported, allowing high density storage within the mezzanine structure and provided maximum storage potential with the facility.
