Mezzanines are cost-effective ways to increase your storage. And, as long as you go with a high-quality system designed by a team of engineering experts, you will get the most out of your investment. Unfortunately, there are many myths out there regarding mezzanines – and most of them stem from people who have purchased used or subpar products.
If you are hesitant about buying a mezzanine, see how these myths are easily debunked.
Prefabricated Mezzanines are Unsafe and Not Durable
People assume that prefabricated mezzanines are not as durable or heavy-duty. They also assume that engineered and custom-made mezzanines are unsafe or not as durable as traditional construction. But, as long as they are created from high-quality steel and capable workers, they are just as durable and safe as building a second story on your warehouse – only much cheaper.
Mezzanines Will Limit Access and Slow Productivity
Mezzanines increase productivity by decluttering your warehouse floor. While the construction may offset some of your access, this is temporary and most mezzanines can be completed in just a few weeks – letting you get back to work in no time.
Mezzanines Can Only Hold so Much Weight
While it is true there is a capacity limit, you can purchase heavy-duty mezzanines that can hold a substantial amount of weight – and it’s unlikely you’ll come close to capacity. There are even some mezzanines that have been designed to hold multiple vehicles.
They Cost Too Much
Mezzanines are much more affordable than traditional construction or relocation. Also, if you have a cluttered warehouse, it is likely your warehouse isn’t operating as efficiently; therefore, the increase in production and efficiency will help you save even more.
