What Is a Mezzanine?
The term mezzanine comes from the Latin word medianus which means median. Essentially, a mezzanine is a median or middle floor inside a building. Local codes may vary, but mezzanines are typically not counted as an additional floor in a building, which is one of numerous reasons why mezzanines are preferred. Building vertically allows warehouses to double and triple their workable space easily and efficiently. (Not to mention, mezzanine platforms are cost-efficient.) Mezzanines provide stable structure for storage, elevated walkways, and additional workforce space and are commonly used throughout distribution facilities and manufacturing plants.
