About Shelf Supported Mezzanines

Shelf supported mezzanines, also known as rack supported mezzanines, are a type of elevated platform or intermediate floor that utilizes existing shelving or rack systems as support. These mezzanines are designed to maximize storage space within warehouses, distribution centers, and other industrial facilities, offering an efficient and cost-effective solution for expanding storage capacity.

There are many benefits to installing a shelf supported mezzanine in your warehouse or storage/distribution facility. Shelving supported mezzanines allow you to increase overall storage for your warehouse by making use of existing vertical space. These cost-effective mezzanines cause minimal disruption to your operations since they are quick and easy to install.

Shelf supported mezzanines are great for creating ideal space for storage, offices, or surveillance.

Shelf supported mezzanine systems are an effective way to create extra storage area using boltless shelving components. The additional components that would be required include decking, stairs, and railings for protection against falls. Multi-level storage systems, such as a used shelving supported mezzanine, take advantage of the height of your building, utilizing the extra space for additional inventory to be kept.

Typically, with this style of mezzanine, uprights are not necessarily needed to support the structure. The floor is secured to the shelving or pallet rack uprights, which eliminate the need for free standing columns. Additional structural columns can be added if the mezzanine will be supporting a large amount of heavy inventory.

Used Shelf Supported Mezzanine benefits include: cost effectively combine storage with your mezzanine structure, custom designed to your specific shelving needs, doubles the amount of storage space when compared to single level storage systems. In addition, there is a tax benefit to purchasing used mezzanines because they are considered equipment and not property, and therefore do not increase your taxable square footage.

We test, clean, and inspect all equipment prior to shipment. This ensures that our customers receive a top quality used product that will provide a solution to any material handling problem.
