... So We Added A Mezzanine To Their Mezzanine

We are often asked to create storage space out of thin air.  Customers who have such a premium on floor space that they can’t afford to give up an inch but desperately need the additional room.  In most cases an industrial steel warehouse mezzanine will fit the bill nicely.  Unfortunately sometimes a run of the mill mezzanine just won’t do.  American Warehouse Systems loves projects like this.  A challenge to create something out of nothing.  This is one of those stories.

Currently American Warehouse Systems is working on a project to build a two level mezzanine system on a military base. The customer expressed a need for significantly more storage in the building but did not have any floor space to lose. The structure presented many challenges as there was an abundance of existing equipment, trenches, and duct work that could not be tampered with.  An American Warehouse Systems representative visited the site in order to fully understand the existing constraints and designed a solution to make the customer’s wishes into reality.

Ultimately, it was decided that the best solution would be to add a second level to the mezzanine already designed and purchased, since this particular building had very high ceilings. The second mezzanine level ended up doubling the storage available to the customer. A material lift was also included in the design in order to ensure the customer would be able to easily move materials from the ground level up to either level of the mezzanine structure.  American Warehouse Systems was also able to incorporate a forklift access area for the customer, so they could easily transport pallets between levels.

This is just one example of American Warehouse Systems ability to work with the customer and come up with workable solutions that not only meet, but exceed customer expectations. Contact us today to find out how we can help you solve your storage problems! 877-677-9066 or
