Custom Mezzanines | Out of Space? Build Up! 

Your business is expanding, and that’s great. The problem is you're running out of floor space. And constructing additional square footage just isn't in the budget.

Why not install a mezzanine?

Structural steel mezzanines from R.W. Martin are the ideal way to increase your facility’s usable floor space without investing time and capital in new construction.

What are Structural Steel Mezzanines?

A mezzanine is a work or storage platform area positioned between two floors. Also considered an intermediate floor, these structures have a wide variety of names, including industrial mezzanine, mezzanine level or floor, and warehouse or work platform.

No matter what you call them, mezzanines give your facility additional floorspace even though they're not normally included in the overall floor count in a building.

Mezzanines are extremely beneficial in industrial settings, as they provide additional usable space without a need to expand the facility outwards. They take advantage of the existing vertical space that comes with the high ceilings normally found in warehouses, distribution centers, and manufacturing facilities.

But even small-to-mid-sized facilities such as auto parts providers will benefit from the installation of a mezzanine.

R.W. Martin's mezzanines are made of structural steel, allowing for the high demands of dense storage. Through a combination of custom design and added shelving, steel partitions, and paneling, R.W. Martin can create a mezzanine to suit your unique business needs.

Why Add a Mezzanine?

With a mezzanine, you get more space: One of the biggest reasons to consider a customized mezzanine for your facility is that mezzanines enable you to take advantage of the potential for more usable space…by going up! When you go up, you get:

    • New work areas: Mezzanines enable you to better utilize the vertical space you already have.

    • Added storage capacity: With a mezzanine, you keep your goods and materials off the main floor while ensuring that they’re still accessible.

    • Additional office space: A mezzanine is a great place to locate a foreman’s office or to accommodate your company’s expanding administrative personnel.

Mezzanines improve organizational capacity: Gaining more space gives you the opportunity to better sort and arrange your company’s inventory.

Preserve brightness and air flow: One advantage that mezzanines have over closed rooms is that they don’t just add space, they also keep the open feel of that space. This is better for overall air circulation and for keeping your facility brighter, especially industrial spaces that opt for open bar floor grating for their mezzanines.

Aesthetic appeal: Mezzanines aren’t just for industrial areas! Businesses that are open to the public will also benefit from having additional usable space. A customized mezzanine might be just what your retail store or other public-facing establishment needs to complement its unique character and layout.

Lower installation cost: R.W. Martin will design and install your mezzanine for a fraction of what it would cost you to build out your facility by adding an extra room or wing.

Shorter timeline: Order your mezzanine today and the materials will be at your site within three months.

Fewer disruptions: Thanks to the nature of the components and our technical knowledge, R.W. Martin can install most mezzanines in less than a week.

Save on energy expenses: Since your mezzanine will be situated within your existing facility, there’s no need to pay for additional utilities as you would if you added another room or wing.

Easy relocation: Each Cogan mezzanine is modular and free-standing. If you need to move your mezzanine, you can disassemble it and then reassemble it at its new location.

Flexibility and customized design: To keep costs low, R.W. Martin starts with a standard design. But we will gladly customize your mezzanine to meet your specialized needs.

Configuration options: We can tailor your mezzanine’s size, height, load capacity, and access points. You can also choose from a variety of deck surfaces and multiple stair configurations.

Complement Your Mezzanine with a VRC Lift

Vertical Reciprocating Conveyor (VRC) lifts are a perfect addition to your new mezzanine!

It’s safer to use a VRC lift to move materials from one floor to another than it is to use a forklift or relocate them manually. And VRC lifts are less expensive than elevators.

R.W. Martin is a knowledgeable designer, installer, and supplier of both mezzanines and VRC lifts. We can create the perfect customized space-saving solution for your business.
