Mezzanines are increasingly popular options for businesses requiring additional space on existing premises. Not only do mezzanine platforms provide an extra level of usable surface, they also provide additional safety, as mezzanines can be built with guard rails, balustrades and other protective covers to create a barrier in otherwise hazardous areas. Furthermore, mezzanine platforms and mezzanine flooring are incredibly flexible in design and installation, allowing them to fit easily into most spaces. With such versatility, these practical structures have made it much simpler for businesses to gain valuable extra working space at minimal expense.

Add additional storage, workspace, or access to areas in your factory or warehouse. Mezzanines are a two-floor system of mezzanine flooring on the bottom (like a subfloor) and mezzanine platforms (usually the second story) that can be custom-built for your needs, giving an interesting alternative to traditional steel rack shelving or ladders. Mezzanine platforms can also be used to raise hvac equipment or manufacturing equipment, freeing up valuable floor space.

Catwalks offer a unique option for navigating multiple levels of a warehouse, allowing workers to move from one mezzanine level to another quickly and efficiently. With these options, businesses can optimize their available space without having to invest in additional construction or expansion projects. Catwalks can also surround processing equipment for safely loading blenders or servicing machinery.

Functional Mezzanine Applications

The benefits of installing mezzanines in your facility are endless. Mezzanines are multi-level platforms that are used to increase storage and floor space in commercial, and industrial facilities.

Work & Industrial Mezzanines

Work & industrial mezzanines provide an additional level of workspace with the flexibility to accommodate different types of equipment, such as conveyors or cranes. These mezzanines also offer improved safety for employees by keeping them off the floor, reducing the risk of slips and falls. Additionally, work & industrial mezzanines can reduce costs associated with building out more space by utilizing the available vertical area within a facility.

Equipment Mezzanines

Equipment mezzanines are designed to support heavy machinery or equipment at a higher elevation than the ground floor. This is beneficial for facilities that need more space for their machines but don’t have room on the floor below. Equipment mezzanines also make it easier to access machinery at higher heights without having to use ladders or other dangerous methods. Additionally, these mezzanines come with railings to ensure safety when accessing machines from above.


Storage mezzanines are ideal for facilities that need additional storage space but don’t have enough room on the ground floor. These structures can be customized with shelving or other components depending on what type of storage you require. Storage mezzanines are often used in warehouses and manufacturing facilities where there is an abundance of supplies that need to be stored away safely while still being accessible when needed. Additionally, these structures can be designed with stairs or ramps so workers can access items from above without putting themselves in danger.

Pallet Rack Mezzanine

A pallet rack mezzanine is a great solution for businesses looking to maximize their unused vertical space. Alternately known as a rack supported mezzanine, the frame of these structures is built using pallet racks, making installation fast and cost-effective. The pallet racks provide a sturdy foundation for construction that allows for incredible strength and flexibility in design. Whether you’re looking to utilize your excess storage space or need an affordable raised level, pallet rack mezzanines are a great option. With design versatility and easy installation, rack supported mezzanines should be a consideration for any business looking to make better use of its existing space.

Aztec offers pallet rack mezzanines with a modular office on top, giving you an aerial view of your warehouse or manufacturing floor. You can also add modular office walls to surround a high capacity mezzanine to store heavy pallets with an office on the ground floor. Rack supported mezzanines give you a dual purpose mezzanine that offers improved access to previously inaccessible areas, as well as extra storage for products and materials. They are a great choice for creating an efficient and organized warehouse.

Wide Span Mezzanine

A wide span mezzanine offers more space than a typical mezzanine setup. It is a great solution for companies looking to maximize their space without having to move to a bigger facility. Wide span mezzanines can help increase storage capacity and optimize workflow, in addition to cutting down on typical building costs such as floor space. Depending on the application, wide span mezzanines come in both structural and rack support styles, and are easily installed with minimal interruption of current workflow. Additionally, wide span mezzanines offer unparalleled flexibility in reach and storage capabilities compared to regular mezzanines, allowing businesses to make use of every inch of their facility while still having access to all materials stored.
