As businesses grow, so do their storage needs. Businesses often face the challenge of limited floor space. Shifting to a warehouse with more space in such situations can be a costly and time-consuming process. Rack-supported mezzanines provide a solution. They help increase existing storage space and create extra storage capacity.

The custom-designed storage systems are supported by durable racks and shelving. They double the available floor space by providing a second level of storage above the existing floor. These mezzanine systems offer a cost-effective alternative to expanding their warehouse space and keeping from relocating to a larger facility.

The benefits of rack-supported mezzanines go beyond storage space. They include increased efficiency, smooth operations, and a safer work environment.

This article discusses the benefits of these creative storage solutions in detail. It also explores their key features and how these solutions help businesses improve their storage system. To see more industrial storage solutions, view our market page.

The Benefits of Rack-supported Mezzanines

rack supported mezzanine storage systems

Space Saving

Space-saving is one of the key benefits of rack-supported mezzanines. The mezzanines use vertical space to increase the storage capacity. They provide a better and more affordable way to meet a business’ needs for more space.

The mezzanine racking systems work by raising storage or workstations off the ground. This helps businesses make efficient use of existing square footage. As a result, they become an ideal solution for facilities with limited floor space.

Increased Storage Capacity

Mezzanine shelving helps increase the storage capacity of a facility. Businesses can use vertical space and do not have to grow the facility’s footprint.

The increased storage capacity is both efficient and affordable. Businesses can store more items in the same amount of floor space.

Key Features


multi level shelvingMezzanine rackings are customizable. Businesses can adjust these multi-level shelvings to meet their unique space needs. These storage systems can also be adjusted to meet various load capacities, aisle widths, and heights.

Improved Worker Safety

Rack supported mezzanines also improve worker safety. Mezzanine floors provide another storage or work area that is separate from ground-level activities. This results in reducing the risk of accidents and injuries.

These shelving supported mezzanines improve worker safety by offering safe and organized storage. This, in turn, reduces the risk of falls or items falling onto workers. Workers can access items without the need to climb ladders or reach overhead. This reduces the risk of strain injuries as well.

Durable Construction

Rack supported mezzanines use a pallet rack framework that can withstand heavy loads and daily use. This adds to their long-lasting performance. Their durable construction removes the need for frequent repairs and replacements. As a result, businesses can save on upkeep costs. Visit our online store to see our industrial storage products.

“The team at Southwest Solutions were nothing short of fantastic. First meeting with Craig, I received a customized design, in person, based on my office needs while still maintaining an efficient layout and being cost effective. Craig explained everything clearly, allowing me to understand that as modular mill-work, I would be able to move it if I ever changed offices, but without the added sales pressure to immediately make a decision. Once I had decided, I worked with Chris who assisted in picking out the finishes and scheduling the delivery and installation. The professionalism of Craig and Chris spoke volumes and I would highly recommend anyone looking to transform or fit-out an office to contact Southwest Solutions.”
