Mezzanines increase productive warehouse space. These work platforms are elevated on four heavy-duty columns to create a second level of usable space.
The floor space beneath a mezzanine level remains usable as well and doesn’t interfere with forklift and machine operations. Many customers request these industrial systems for their warehouses after an expansion or in an attempt to optimize their warehousing.
Depending on the facility and warehouse application, your customer may need one of the following work platform styles. These are the most common mezzanine styles.
Structural mezzanines are free-standing in their most basic form. When we speak of work platforms this is what we are referring to.
Parts mezzanines offer storage density and efficiency for order picking. Great for high-density parts storage warehouses. Includes an incline conveyor for easy bin, carton, or part transportation from floor to platform.
Sometimes referred to as catwalk systems because of the walkways created by rack aisles. Creates usable space above your pallet racking and adds square footage to the facility.

Mezzanines are fully customizable. Here are some of the elements that can be custom-fit for each client:
Mezzanines are heavy-duty, industrial systems. When a customer asks for a mezzanine, assume it will be an integral piece of their everyday warehouse operations.
Work platforms take lots of wear and tear from forklifts, high capacities, and daily use. Proper quoting is essential to ensure safety in your customer’s warehouse. Be sure to follow each of these steps when quoting mezzanines.
To ensure a proper fit and capacity rating, ask your customer the following questions and be specific:
Make sure you know your mezzanine styles and capacity ratings before quoting. Quote a high enough capacity mezzanine to safely hold all of your customer’s product, storage systems, and personnel.
Be generous – capacity and storage needs fluctuate and may increase with time.
Additionally, knowing the many mezzanine customizations and style options makes you a valuable resource. Keep clients coming back for accessories, replacements, and more in the future by becoming the expert.
Finally, mezzanines may not be the best option for your customer. Knowing the products allows you to offer suggestions or alternatives when a mezzanine may not be what your customer really needs.
