Unused vertical space is a burden on your bottom line. Building a quality mezzanine can substantially increase usable square footage without the painful costs of relocation or constructing an annex.
Your property costs (rent or buy) include every inch of space from floor to ceiling. In 88 percent of industrial spaces, you’re paying for what is used and stored on ground level. Why not make the best use of the extra space above? Don’t look further than occupying it with a high-quality and durable mezzanine. It’s your most cost-effective method to doubling use of functional square-footage.
A mezzanine is no easy decision when looking to maximize your space. First, consider the type of mezzanines out there: structural steel, cold-rolled, stainless steel, aluminum, structural fiberglass and rack support mezzanines among others. It would be nearly impossible to outline the details of mezzanines since each and every one is customized to best fit the surrounding space and need. More important than discussing details of mezzanine design is ensuring that your mezzanine supplier is supported by insured and ICC-member engineers. Otherwise, someone could be building you a fabricated mezzanine and there’s a chance you could face construction difficulties, potential injuries or fines upon audit.
Lastly, but most certainly not least, is the warranty. Most mezzanines are contracted under a 5 or 10-year warranty, but many of them come with a lifetime warranty. Let us connect you from beginning to end with regards to your mezzanine purchase.
