A platform can be used to increase storage space at an industrial or commercial facility. Several mezzanine storage options are available, and choosing the right one can be difficult.

Steele Solutions is the top choice for steel mezzanine platforms. We provide top-of-the-line support structures for distribution and fulfillment centers, warehouses, and other industrial and commercial buildings.

Mezzanine Storage Benefits

Businesses frequently use mezzanines to expand their storage space without costly and time-intensive building additions. Structures can be designed for buildings of all sizes and be built from steel and other heavy-duty materials to deliver long-lasting value.

Mezzanine Storage Ideas

To maximize a mezzanine storage area, it helps to plan ahead. That way, a business can evaluate various steel mezzanine storage options and select one that delivers the best return on investment.

Four steel mezzanine storage options are available:

1. Freestanding

Freestanding structures can be quickly and easily set up and moved as needed. The mezzanines are classified as capital equipment. As such, they can provide tax savings.

2. Building-Supported

Building-supported structures can handle heavy loads. They can be built as part of a blended system that consists of a steel structure supported by building columns or its foundation.

3. Rack-Supported

Rack-supported mezzanines let businesses create space between storage racks. They can be used with a rack system that is properly equipped to handle heavy loads. Or, a business can use catwalks in combination with rack-supported mezzanines.

4. Shelving-Supported

Shelving-supported mezzanines are terrific options for businesses that want to store small items alongside their existing shelves. They are economical and efficient in contrast to other types of mezzanines. Conversely, shelving-supported mezzanines can be difficult to reconfigure in comparison to other mezzanine options.
