Pallet Rack Mezzanine Overview

Save valuable floor space and utilize vertical space with a pallet rack mezzanine. A pallet rack mezzanine system is ideal for an operation that has run out of warehouse space but still has vertical space that is not being utilized.

Rack supported mezzanines can be 2 levels or 3 levels high. If you have existing pallet racking you may be able to utilize some of it in a pallet rack mezzanine, especially some of the beams and decks.

Highlights of a Pallet Rack Mezzanine

  • Increased storage capacity: By adding a second floor to your warehouse you essentially double your square footage of usable storage space.
  • Reduced Costs: pallet rack mezzanine systems are more affordable than buying a bigger building or building a free standing mezzanine. You are already purchasing the rack. Why not use it to support the second floor instead of a separate mezzanine structure?
  • Greater picking space: By not having the thickness of a mezzanine structure you are able to lower your vertical profile by about a foot in most cases.

Types of Pallet Rack Mezzanines

  1. Catwalk systems – catwalk rack supported mezzanines are where the uprights run up the full height of the structure and the flooring and supports are suspended from the beams. This saves money because you only have flooring in the aisles. In a catwalk system, you cannot move around any of the shelves left and right. You can only adjust shelf levels up and down.
  2. Full deck over systems – a full deck over system is where the flooring is laid on top of the racking to create a complete solid floor on the second level. This gives you more flexibility upstairs because you can adjust the shelving around if your needs change, or just have open floor space.

In reality, most pallet rack mezzanines are a hybrid of these two systems because you end up needing some open floor space for a forklift gate, packing station, etc.

Uses Cases for a Pallet Rack Supported Mezzanine

  • Warehouses seeking to boost storage capacity without expanding to a new facility.
  • Distribution centers striving to enhance material handling efficiency and add additional storage space.
  • Retail outlets aiming to manage surplus inventory or carve out extra retail floor space.
