When it comes to warehouse settings or anything similar, one of the biggest issues is having enough storage and working space. How do you make more space for your business? You have mezzanines and equipment platforms installed. But how do you make sure to get the most out of your mezzanines?
Consider Your Wants and Needs
The first thing you’ll want to do is think about what you’re going to be using the mezzanines for. Will it be to store product? Is it to house records? What about more office space?
Planning ahead for your mezzanine usage needs will definitely help you get the most out of your mezzanine structure. It doesn’t mean that you can’t change the plan later. In fact, that’s something great about using mezzanines and equipment platforms; they can be altered and added on to in the future.
You know that your business will change over time. Often, it’s easy to see that you might need extra space eventually. It’s a good idea to have more mezzanine space installed than you need right at the moment.
By doing so, you’ll already have the extra space you’ll need as your business grows.
Start from the Ground Up
Your warehouse facility or other structure has been built on some type of slab that has a specific load capacity. If you exceed that load capacity, you could cause some pretty big problems for yourself later on. Slabs come in all different types and have different characteristics.
Before you place the order for your mezzanine structure system and have it installed, have someone come out to analyze your soils and your slab load capacity. The load capacity of your slab must exceed the load capacity of your mezzanine system.
You Need A Good Flow
The flow of your workspace is very important. If it’s hard to get around and things are inconvenient to get to or through, then efficiency is lost, and production can slow down. You can ensure that your workspace and storage space will flow its best by having the experts come out and work with you on the layout of your entire mezzanine structure.

Maximize Your Space
You can maximize the space that you have in your current facility by choosing a mezzanine structure. By building up into your existing space, you won’t find that you need to move on from your facility because building outward has you limited to the square footage only within your ground floor.
You’ll make the most out of your mezzanine by creating storage for all of your product, space for some of your equipment, storage areas for files and records, and even making office spaces if that’s what you need.
And you can do all of that without eliminating any workspace you have on the floor.
