Benefits and Disadvantages of a Mezzanine

Another advantage of the racking system would be the simple installation and deconstruction of the mezzanine. As these systems are generally free-standing structures, there is no need for the platform level to be mounted onto the walls. This will then ensure a smooth assembling and dismantling process.

The mezzanine platform provides your company with a safer alternative to store, organize, and pack goods. With the use of pre-installed staircases and the option of including an additional walkway for pedestrian access, this solution would make operations more efficient and reliable.

One of the drawbacks of installing a platform would be the cost of investing in one. Although these model types are meant to last in the long run, the initial amount that an organization would have to pay in advance is an issue that discourages most companies from adopting this mezzanine system.
