When you need to expand your facility and don’t have enough room to expand outward, then consider going up. In many cases this is clearly the best choice. A mezzanine is an open, non-walled off space or floor that is mounted in a space with a high ceiling.

A mezzanine is an intermediate floor inside of a building, usually open and not walled off. There are a few different types of mezzanines; including stick built, fiberglass, and rack-supported. In general, the two most common types of mezzanines are cold rolled and structural steel. Understanding the differences in the way the two types of mezzanines are manufactured is crucial to ensuring you choose the right product for the job.
