Growing companies often find the need to expand warehouse and office space. Relocating a warehouse can be expensive, time consuming, and disruptive.   Consider taking advantage of unused space by adding a mezzanine to your warehouse.

Custom wide-span structural mezzanines are designed to fit around existing columns and equipment to obtain the greatest amount of floor space. Stairways and opening can be located where needed. The nut and bolt design allows flexibility for expansion or dismantling and relocation. Stein engineering specialists can design a custom integrated mezzanine structure for your facility and storage requirements.

Financial and Operational Considerations

If available space is limiting your growth or putting strains on your operation you are probably considering moving to a new facility, renovating your existing facility or by renting additional space.  These options are costly, time consuming, and can be disruptive to your business.  If your current building has a 15’ ceiling height installing a mezzanine may be the ideal solution.  Industrial steel mezzanines double the size of your warehouse by adding a second floor.  And they can save up to 80% of the cost of new construction and offer significant tax advantages.  Mezzanines can be designed, ordered and installed in as little as 3-4 weeks.

MezzanineMezzanine Applications

Mezzanines are effective solutions in a variety of business applications including:

  • Storage for warehousing and distribution facilities

  • Stockrooms for tools, parts and files

Custom Designed Solution

Our team will work closely with you to transform unused vertical space into productive storage or work areas to meet your business objectives.  Your mezzanine will be custom engineered to your specific use, space requirements and load demands. The design will accommodate existing equipment, building columns and other obstructions – even angled and curved walls.  The design is totally flexible as to the position of stairs and landing platforms.  The area below the mezzanine will have a minimum clear height of 9’ and can accommodate clear span up to 40’. All warehouse mezzanines are designed and manufactured to meet OSHA and/or IBC codes.

Based on the intended mezzanine use and budget, choices of decking include:

    • Plywood (1-2 layers). It’s appropriate for in-plant offices, storage, enclosures, and a multitude of other uses.
    • Poured Concrete. Sites requiring fireproof material or durability and permanence
    • Engineered Material. Warehouses with floors that experience heavy loads from equipment such as forklifts, carts, or dollies.
    • Diamond Plate. The material of choice for heavy loads, welding activities, and to resist damage in pallet loading drop areas.
    • Open Bar Grating.  By far the strongest and most versatile type of open deck available. It allows maximum transfer of heat, sound, and ventilation between levels for sites which require all fireproof materials or ventilation requirements.
    • ResinDek.  Appropriate for almost any application.  This material resists stains and scratches and is designed for heavy loads and foot traffic.

Value Engineered and Versatility

Your mezzanine will be designed to accommodate the space requirements and may also be altered at a later date to meet future growth and expansion needs.  Bolted construction make installation simple and fast and is designed so that it can be disassembled and relocated as business needs change. Our mezzanines are value-engineered by selecting the most efficient combination of hot rolled, high strength cold formed and structural tubes and bar joists that is safe and cost-effective.  Components are powder-coated in any number of colors to provide durability against abuse and corrosive applications.
