Do you need new storage solutions but can’t afford any downtime at your workplace? In a highly-competitive world, time is more important than ever before.
Mezzanine floors are the preferred choice for busy warehouse and industrial environments, as they create an extended floor space in a ceiling area that isn’t already being utilised.
There are lots of good reasons to choose a mezzanine floor. You might already know some of them, but the last one will surprise you.
1) Avoid the inconvenience of relocating or rebuilding
Moving to new premises because you need more warehouse space is a costly and time-consuming exercise that is massively disruptive to your customers, staff and the overall running of your business.
The beauty is that if you’re running out of room to accommodate your growing business you don’t need to move your entire warehouse. Installing a mezzanine can add much-needed floor space without interrupting operations.
2) Maximise unused roof space and make it work for you
Whether you’re paying commercial rent or the premises is owned by the business, the best way to minimise costs and make that empty roof space work for you is to install a mezzanine.
It costs nothing to acquire the existing space above the warehouse floor, other than the one-off cost of the mezzanine itself. If you choose the right system it can also be dismantled and moved to the next premises, making it a wise long-term investment.
3) Create extra floor space in a quick and simple manner
One of the best things about modular mezzanine floors is that they are extremely quick and simple to install. There are uniquely designed systems on the market that can be constructed above any equipment or inventory already on the warehouse floor.
Within a short space of time your extra floor space will be built and ready to take receipt of new stock immediately, a process with minimal impact on the running of your warehouse operations.
4) Load heavy items with reassurance and ease
The need to load heavy items onto a mezzanine floor will differ according to the individual circumstances of each business. Whilst this is not a concern for some, it is a crucial requirement for others.
Central Storage System offers a variety of mezzanine floors with stair access and sliding gates for forklift load access, making it possible to load heavier items onto the floor in a way that is safe, reliable and effective.
5) Watch your mezzanine go up without moving any stock
And now the amazing thing a lot of people don’t know about the new mezzanine designs: they can be put together without needing to move a single thing out of your warehouse.
Moving stock and equipment in and out of the warehouse is not only a time-consuming and cumbersome process, it can also lead to additional expense or delays if sensitive equipment or stock is damaged. With no need to clear your stock for the installation, the productivity gains are significant: a massive win for your business.
