Multi-Level Mezzanines Maximize Storage Space

structural mezzanine automotive parts departmentYou can effectively double your floor space with a multi-level mezzanine without expanding your facility. Depending on the height of your facility, you could even install a multi-level mezzanine with two platform levels to triple your floor capacity.

Automotive mezzanines take advantage of the vertical space in your facility, enabling you to use this underutilized space as an additional storage area. If you’re short on storage space, you might opt for a shelving mezzanine that allows you to extend your storage to the ceiling. If the parts department feels too cramped, you could transfer your storage to a freestanding mezzanine, freeing up the floor space beneath for other productive activities.

However you utilize your multi-level mezzanine, it will save you money. Mezzanines are far more cost-effective than expanding your facility or purchasing offsite storage space. They require minor modifications to your building, providing a dramatic increase in productive floor space at a minimal cost.

Multi-Level Mezzanines Increase Efficiency

By extending your storage space vertically rather than horizontally, mezzanines keep your parts stored in a compact footprint for quicker access. The additional space alleviates overcrowding and makes it easier to keep your storage area organized so that you can locate needed parts faster.

It’s often a good idea to keep shelving and modular drawers on the lower level of the mezzanine for quick access to smaller parts. You can store slow-moving, bulky parts like bumpers, mufflers, tires, windshields, and fenders on the upper level.

Consider installing a vertical material lift to safely transport larger parts to and from the upper mezzanine level. You can also integrate a tire carousel to move tires between the upper and lower levels of the mezzanine.

Multi-Level Mezzanines are Flexible

Choose the correct type of mezzanine for you from the following options:

  • Freestanding mezzanine: An elevated platform supported by columns, with open space beneath.
  • Shelving mezzanine: A mezzanine with decked aisles between tall shelving to create a second shelving level.
  • Deck-over-shelving mezzanine: A mezzanine with decking material laid on top of shelving units below, forming an open upper deck.

You can further customize your multi-level mezzanine with a variety of framing, flooring, stairs, and railing options. Your automotive mezzanine must also comply with codes concerning fire sprinklers, lighting, stairs, and handrails. Learn more about mezzanine customization options here.

They were awesome, to say the least. Being in the service business ourselves, we know that you can never hear the words “Good Job” often enough. Please pass this along to your crew.”

“We are coming up on a year since we installed the file system here at Bill Heard Chevrolet, and we continue to be more than happy with the outcome. The barcode tracking software system tracks the documents for us and is easy to maintain and use. There is something to be said about keeping things simple. We really like the way it interfaces with our software and populates fields for us automatically on a daily basis. Your guidance in the project was the best deal of all though. Your help in the setup and advice on what would work and what might not work saved us a lot of time and money. Again, thanks so much for your help and count on us as another satisfied customer.”
