Why Do I Need A Permit For A Used Mezzanine?

September 9, 2019

First and foremost, your town wants to make sure your design has been approved by a licensed engineer. This gives them a sense of assurance that your facility will be safe for workers. In addition, you are providing your local government with revenue to fund necessary operations.

Not all towns request permits for warehouse mezzanines. However, those located in regions of heavy seismic activity typically require them. In addition, some landlords may demand you get a permit regardless of if it is mandated by the town.

Earthquake Problem?

ASI sells used warehouse mezzanine work platforms with enhanced steel components for use in areas of heavy seismic activity.

Whatever your situation may be, it is best practice to get a permit. Unfortunately, the approval process can sometimes be a hassle. Officials often assume you are requesting a permit for a permanent mezzanine -- such as the balcony in a theater -- which must adhere to IBC codes. However, mezzanine work platforms, such as pallet rack mezzanines, shelf supported mezzanines, and steel mezzanines, must be OSHA compliant.

Luckily, American Surplus can take care of everything you need to get a permit for a used mezzanine in all 50 states.

ASI will provide permit officials with everything from concept drawings to engineering designs to ensure that you receive the correct permit for your used mezzanine work platform.
