Expand your floor space with a Mezzanine or Work Platforms

Our team at The Industrial Products will help you determine what type of Warehouse Mezzanine system is best suited for your application.

A warehouse mezzanine is a space-saving and affordable way to add square footage to your warehouse or a manufacturing-plant without the hassle of moving or expanding your building. The mezzanine simply allows you to use the height in your building to give you additional room.

 They are heavy duty and cost-effective options to enhance a warehouse’s space, productivity, and efficiency.

Warehouse mezzanine systems can be built for a multilevel design that adds storage space, increasing your usable square footage. A pre-engineered mezzanine is a free-standing structure which uses overhead clearance.

However, there is a significant difference, all mezzanines are not created equal. There are many advantages with work-platforms and knowing the difference can save you a lot of money. 

Advantages of Not Being a Mezzanine

There are immediate advantages for not referring to the structure as a mezzanine, the material handling has many names for the same thing work-platform, equipment-platform, and elevated structures are all the same:

  • Clearly defines what the structure is being used for

  • Typically an easier building approval process

  • Capital equipment – depreciated over 7 years instead of 31 years

  • Reduced property taxes – platform space not counted in the square footage of building and mezzanine space can be

  • Can lead to a lower accessed value

With that said, be careful in whom you consult!

Working with an experienced team can help you save thousands in both the front-end as well as the back-end.
