Maximizing your warehouse space is a tricky task. As a warehouse manager you want to be able to store as much product as you can in the smallest amount of space. At the same time, you want to store your products efficiently. If you have an office inside your warehouse that can make things even more difficult. American Surplus specializes in providing warehouse equipment that saves you time, money and space. Two products we offer to make this possible are our Mezzanines & In-Plant Offices.
The best option for an office setup inside your warehouse is an in-plant office. These offices are customizable, modular, and easy to purchase and install. The wall panels come in 4’ x 8’ sheets so you can design your office to fit in the space you have available very easily. American Surplus offers the ability to add doors, windows & lighting as well. While we do not provide electrical outlets, the offices can easily be wired by your local electrician.
Now creativity comes into play. If you have tall ceilings in your warehouse, and have dead space over your In-Plant Office, it may not be as much of a waste as you think. American Surplus utilized a Pre-Owned Steel Mezzanine over it’s In-Plant Office in our warehouse here in East Providence, Rhode Island. We are able to store a lot of product and equipment on top ofthe office by building a mezzanine over the offices.
If you are interested this application of the products we sell you can speak with our sales team for more information and help with your project.
Below you can see how we utilized this application in our own warehouse at American Surplus. On the left, we installed a mezzanine over our main office to store more of our inventory and equipment. Towards the middle we have a second floor office, and all the way right we built another mezzanine to accommodate a large conference room & break room area. Underneath is a travel aisle through the main warehouse. By doing this we double our space while increasing efficiency at the same time.
