Four Main Types of Steel Mezzanines

Platforms Steele Solutions has expertise in the the four main types of industrial and commercial mezzanines:

Free standing

Also known as structural, steel, or wide span mezzanines, these are commonly used in a wide variety of applications and offer great flexibility in set-up and restructuring if needed. Free standing mezzanines and platforms are considered capital equipment and, thus, can be depreciated over a shorter period of time – providing tax advantages. See an example of free standing mezzanines and platforms.

Building Supported

If a building is designed to support additional loads, the structure can be used to support a mezzanine or platform. A blended system can also be developed in which a mezzanine is supported partly by the building structure and partly by columns, as long as the foundation can support the additional load. Steele Solutions is capable of handling building-supported mezzanines without calling in a general contractor. See an example of building supported mezzanines and platforms.

Rack Supported

These platforms create a mezzanine level of usable space between existing storage racks, provided that the rack system can support the additional loads. Catwalks also can be installed in these situations. See an example of rack supported mezzanines and platforms.

Shelving Supported

Ideal for storage of smaller items alongside existing shelving. This is an economical way to make more efficient use of existing space. This type of mezzanine is the least flexible in terms of reconfiguration. See an example of shelving supported mezzanines and platforms.

Storage Mezzanines, Platforms for Increased Storage in Existing Space

Installation of a storage mezzanine or elevated platform is one of the most economical ways to create additional storage space in a warehouse, distribution center or industrial or manufacturing facility where high ceilings exist.

Storage mezzanines and elevated platforms allow storing uniform or odd-size parts, merchandise, machinery, equipment, supplies or other bulk items at floor level as well as above, nearly doubling the storage capacity of the available floor space.

Tax Benefit with Free Standing Storage Mezzanines, Platforms

An additional advantage — when free-standing mezzanines and platforms are used – is a tax benefit. Free-standing mezzanines and platforms are considered capital equipment, therefore the depreciation is quicker than the depreciation would be for a building addition.
