Elevated work platforms instantly add much-needed working area or storage space.

With every square inch of warehouse storage space -- or factory floor space -- being utilized to its fullest extent, many companies are seeking ways to extend the use of their existing square footage for additional storage or work space by looking up…literally. Increasingly, companies are turning to a customized mezzanine as a cost-effective warehouse solution.

"This is a perfect solution for the creation of storage space or even office space above a working area," says Arlin Keck, corporate engineer for Steel King, a leader in high quality material handling solutions. "In a larger facility, with a complex picking and sorting operation, an elevated platform can be used for part of the distribution system." These platforms can actually double or triple existing warehouse space while offering versatility in design and function.

A leading example of this platform is the Steel King ClereSpan mezzanine. Available in variable first-level heights and spans up to 20 feet, this platform can also be customized with a variety of floor surfaces, stairs, and gates. Flooring options range from standard roof decking and treated wood, to bar grating, metal and even concrete. The platform can also be combined with other Steel King products to form a full turnkey system to match facility growth: selective pallet racks, dynamic flow storage systems, cantilever racks, portable racks, custom shipping racks, and industrial steel containers.

These products are known for their rugged stability in warehouse solutions and these elevated platforms are no exception. They are custom designed for their particular applications and location. They can also be modified to take into account higher seismic zone requirements or heavier load rates.

Elevated work platforms or mezzanines are ideal for additional in-plant office space, archive/record storage, small parts storage, and picking and sorting operations.

The ClereSpan line is manufactured by welders using certified quality control systems in Steel King's Wisconsin and Georgia facilities, and is distributed directly through the company's nationwide network of local material handling dealers and system integrators.

Steel King's innovative mezzanine design, customizing capabilities and utilization of the finest materials and construction methods in the industry has earned the company a reputation for quality in the design and manufacture of material handling and warehouse solutions.
