The time when you need to expand brings both a feeling of elation and dread. Expansion means that you have achieved a milestone in your business. Give yourself a pat on the back because you’ve earned it.
However, an expansion also brings worries. Moving to or construction of a new facility is expensive. You will incur considerable downtime and productivity may suffer.
Warehouse mezzanines offer a fast, economical, and effective solution to this problem. Here are 4 reasons why you should consider a mezzanine upgrade for your warehouse expansion.
1. Double Your Effective Space
Most warehouse buildings have high ceilings. You are wasting space by limiting activities to a single floor. Make effective use of that space by installing a warehouse mezzanine.
The new area created gives your warehouse flexibility for almost any application. Need a secure area for more valuable products? How about an area for assembly lines, new office spaces, or boardroom areas?
You can use that additional space for whatever your current needs are. Another benefit is that it will give your facility a clean and organized look. This is a big boost to your brand image especially if your warehouse receives frequent visits from partners or client representatives.
2. Save Money
A mezzanine upgrade is one of the most cost-effective ways to acquire more space. The installation and labor cost is going to be a lot cheaper than buying real estate for a new warehouse. Maintenance for warehouse mezzanines is minimal and affordable.
And since you will be staying in your current building, you can use your existing heating and cooling systems. Not only will you be saving on energy cost, you will also reduce your carbon footprint.
3. Highly Customizable
You can customize the mezzanine to suit any size, shape or configuration. Depending on the use, additional accessories such as protective guards and handrails, conveyors, or gravity chutes can be incorporated into the mezzanine floor.
We can also disassemble and move constructed mezzanines at any time. If you need to make changes, these can be done readily.
4. Less Disruption Means Less Downtime
During construction of the mezzanine, we usually can work around all the existing equipment and obstructions in the warehouse. All activities beneath the mezzanine can go on with minimal disruption.
You can continue your day to day operations without any hitch. You don’t have to worry about customers waiting or your employees not having a place to work.
