At Commander Warehouse, they know that utilizing mezzanines can be a great way to increase workspace and storage space. That is why they offer a selection of mezzanine products.
Mezzanine Configuration Ideas
Some of the different ways that mezzanines can be configured for a warehouse space include:
1. Incorporate Conveyors
Incorporating incline conveyors into a mezzanine system can be the ideal option for warehouses that need to move products between the ground and mezzanine level. Incline conveyors are easy to operate and can by secured to the ground for either manual or automated loading.
2. Include Safety Barriers
Since all high-level platforms are legally required to have handrails or barriers to prevent workers from falling, it is important to determine which type of safety barrier will work best for your particular warehouse. In most cases, a simple handrail system will be able to provide the right level of safety for workers.
3. Create Office Spaces
If you are thinking about creating office spaces or storage rooms on the mezzanine floor, you should plan out the layout of each room and then install partition walls. Suspended ceilings, windows, doors, heating, lighting, air conditioning, carpeting, network wiring, and other amenities can also be incorporated, providing a completely customized office space.
4. Add in Staircases
Adding staircases to the overall design of your mezzanine floor can make it much easier for workers to access the space. In some cases, depending on the layout and use of the mezzanine, you may be required to incorporate stairs into the design. It is always a good idea to check with your mezzanine provider beforehand to ensure that your mezzanine will be up to code.
5. Select the Right Flooring
Once you have decided what the mezzanine will be used for, you will need to decide which type of flooring will work best for your particular warehouse needs. When choosing the right type of flooring, make sure to look for something that has the right load bearing ability, moisture resistance, fire resistance, and durability, as well as a non-slip surface.
