Mezzanines are a great way to add square footage to your warehouse without an expensive or time-consuming construction project. Mezzanines provide a sturdy second or even third floor surface, utilizing the open space between the tops of pallet racks and the ceiling. However, you'll need to ensure that your mezzanine has the right guardrails in place to protect both the workers on and under the mezzanine surface.
Just like a roof line, the edge of your mezzanine needs to offer protection from falls. While falls from mezzanines are less common than those that happen on the edge of a roof, it's still a potential hazard for your team and one that could result in a permanent injury or even the loss of life. Even if you use your mezzanine for storage, a safety rail is a necessity as it will prevent inventory from shifting off of the platform and crashing to the floor below.
Along with our guardrails, we offer mezzanine guards that protect openings, control access points, and can prevent falls of both your workers and your inventory from the edge of a mezzanine. Many reputable mezzanine manufacturers will provide you with the necessary guardrails but you will occasionally need to replace or upgrade your equipment. Whether you need a whole new rail system or simply an addition to your current setup to meet the needs of a reconfiguration on your mezzanine, you'll find everything that you need in our online store.
Safety rails can reduce workplace accidents and actually save you money and time in the long term. Let our team help you design the mezzanine guardrails that you need.
