What Is A Raised Storage Area?
A raised storage area is a freestanding structure that is supported by a pallet racking or shelving structure. Raised storage areas are highly customisable. They’re a low cost way to increase storage space by utilising unoccupied airspace in any warehouse or storage facility. The use of a raised storage area or warehouse mezzanine floor can up to double floor space, allowing for efficient expansion.

What is a Warehouse Mezzanine Floor?
Often used in warehouses and distribution units, a mezzanine floor is an elevated platform or raised storage area used to expand storage space in an existing premise. Warehouse mezzanine floors are constructed independently of any existing building structure. They are usually freestanding and can be dismantled with relative ease.

Warehouse mezzanine racking (or Raised Storage Areas) are great for a variety of industries.
We often find companies with a lot of small parts storage are greatly advantaged with the use of a Mezzanine storage system mixed with long pan shelving.
The reason being, that there are numerous shelves that are readily accessible in a much more confined space which ultimately saves of floor area and rent. However, we also supply Raised Storage Areas (mezzanine racking) to clients who store larger bulky items such as tyres, car parts, archive storage, packaging equipment and electronics.
Across All Industries
Warehouse mezzanine racking is ideal for a variety of industries. We often find companies with a lot of small-parts storage are greatly advantaged with the use of a mezzanine storage system combined with long span shelving. This is because there are numerous shelves that are readily accessible in a much more confined space, saving on floor area and rent.
We also supply raised storage areas to clients who store larger, bulkier items such as:
- All small parts picking
- Car parts
- Archive storage
- Packaging equipment
- Fixtures and fittings
The MACRACK mezzanine storage systems can be tailored to suit all companies and size requirements.
What Are the Benefits of a Warehouse Mezzanine Floor?
The effective use of a warehouse mezzanine floor can result in a range of benefits including:
Cost – Warehouse mezzanine floors are one of the most cost-effective solutions for increased storage space. They provide the increased storage space required for an expanding business or enterprise. This allows for business expansion without the same extensive costs of relocating to larger premises. At MACRACK we offer pallet racking based mezzanine floors. Pallet racking based mezzanine floors reduce costs even further without compromising on quality.
Increased Floor and Storage Space – An obvious benefit of the installation of a warehouse mezzanine floor is the increased floor and storage space. You can significantly increase floor space by using unoccupied vertical areas. This avoids the need to move to a bigger, more expensive building while allowing for expansion. Mezzanine floors can be built on long span shelving or rack supported structures. These options can provide up to double the storage space by utilising the foundation of the mezzanine floor as shelving.
Increased Return on Investment – The addition of a mezzanine floor to any warehouse or distribution centre will result in an increased return on investment. Increased floor and storage space of up to 50% allows for faster product turnover with more materials able to be stored at any given time. With the right equipment such as a goods lift or conveyor belt, the raised storage space can also increase productivity. This is because this setup lends itself to quicker packing and picking speeds than a single level warehouse with equal storage space.
Building Maintenance – Building a warehouse mezzanine floor allows your business to expand without upsizing. A smaller building often means less maintenance. Additionally, depending on the size of the mezzanine floor, you can avoid the need to secure new planning permissions.
Customer Retention – A Warehouse mezzanine floor can be used to avoid warehouse relocation. This can be beneficial to your business both financially and logistically. On top of the above benefits, avoiding relocating means avoiding the customer loss that can often come with changing premises. By remaining in the same location, you’ll continue to reap benefits of the local presence you’ve already built.
MACRACK is proud to deliver a safe system that allows your staff to operate without the dangers of picking on the same level where forklifts operate. The floor is even strong enough to wheel pallets around on pallet jacks. All MACRACK warehouse floors are fully made to the Australian standards to guarantee the safety of your staff.
MACRACK’s New Up-N-Over Gate
Our new Up-N-Over gate operates with the idea that it is closed off 100% of the time, protecting your staff from ever being exposed to a falling hazard.
When in the closed position, the gate sits with a pallet inside the warehouse floor area, allowing staff to move the pallet. When in the open position, the pallet is not accessible by staff on the floor but is able to be accessed by the forklift below. The operation is a see-saw action that swings over the top of pallets, hence its name: The Up-N-Over gate.
The amazing locking system means that the gate never gets caught half way – its default position is closed and the gate is weighted that way to close by itself. However, by grabbing the handle and pulling down (under 3kg of force) the gate will lock into the guide, keeping the gate in the open position. This is the safest option on the market and can be retrofitted to all mezzanine floors and raised work areas.

“We need more shelving!”
“We are running out of room in our warehouse!”
“We don’t want to move warehouse, but we need more space!”
If you hear this complaint in your warehouse, you may need a Mezzanine Floor, just like Boss Air did.
Having grown over the years to a substantial size company the owner and his team found themselves in an all too familiar predicament, they had a great location, perfect size office, but the warehouse was full and they needed more space.
They called us to come look at their warehouse and advise how much more shelving they could fit into their existing racking system. Talking through the option of squeezing more shelving in, we all came to the conclusion that there just wasn’t enough room and they would be spending money to essentially replace what they already had. The moment that one of our Macrack Reps said, “Why don’t we build a mezzanine level and double your floor space?” it was like a light bulb flicking on.
It was the perfect solution! They doubled their floor space, they Doubled their shelving area, they got to stay at the same location, they now had room to grow AGAIN! Within the space of a matter of weeks, they were running like clockwork with room and shelves to spare.
Because Macrack is a manufacturer we can tailor mezzanine floors to any size shape and configuration you require. Boss Air had an “L” shaped warehouse and needed specific floor level to match their upstairs office. This was easily achieved with the flexible racking system that Macrack offers.
So if you have asked yourself, ‘how do we get more storage this warehouse’ call Macrack and talk to people who can offer you the perfect solution that you may never have thought of.
