Benefits of Pallet Rack Mezzanine

May 27, 2021
Pallet Rack Mezzanine

Utilizing the most space in a warehouse often requires having access to a mezzanine. With a pallet rack mezzanine, your vertical space can be used for storage. It’s not uncommon to run out of space when you own a warehouse but a mezzanine can be an affordable way to create more storage space quickly.

There are two options when it comes to mezzanines; freestanding and rack supported. Freestanding mezzanines are more versatile and more flexible when there are changes later on with operations. However, unlike rack supported mezzanines the freestanding mezzanines don’t have the additional storage below. On the other hand, freestanding mezzanines provide less support and are less affordable. Rack supported mezzanines are more cost-effective and will support pallet as well as carton flow. Rack supported mezzanines are also more visually appealing although they are less flexible and harder to add to later on.

Rack supported mezzanines are great if you already have existing pallet racks in your warehouse, providing you with new storage space starting from the ground up! This will help make it easier to load and unload pallets. While the freestanding mezzanines have their benefits, we will be focusing on the benefits of the rack supported mezzanines for this blog.

If you're still looking over other options and on the fence about using a mezzanine, continue reading to understand the benefits of a pallet rack mezzanine.

Three Benefits of Pallet Rack Mezzanine

  • Flexibility
    • The pallet rack mezzanine is very flexible once installed for what you choose to store in your warehouse. They easily help provide a new amount of space whether your warehouse is used for carton flow, cantilever storage, and pallet gates. While they may be a little less versatile than the freestanding mezzanines, the pallet rack mezzanine still provides enough flexibility with the amount of space it creates and its stable structure to make the minor difference in versatility worth it when it comes to choosing the pallet rack mezzanine.
  • Cost
    • Unlike the freestanding mezzanines, you'll save money with installation when you go with the pallet rack mezzanine. You won’t have to spend time installing footing or making sure that the mezzanine is securely supported so employees feel safe. With the pallet rack mezzanine, you can easily install and have storage space available in a secure manner that also looks visually appealing. The quick and easy installation saves you time and money.
  • The Better Investment
    • With the rack supported mezzanines, you have the ability to customize it to fit the needs of your warehouse and focus on what type of storage is required for your business. You can always feel confident that the mezzanines you’ve installed in your warehouse are safe, sturdy, and provide enough storage space to fit your needs without breaking the bank. Overall, the rack supported mezzanine is a better investment at the end of the day.
