Storage platforms are mezzanines used for temporary placement of materials and equipment. Many public, commercial, warehouse and industrial buildings make use of storage platforms to increase existing floor space for storage.

Eventually, a growing company will reach the limits of its storage or workspace capacity. A company that faces this problem has a few options. The company can move to new, larger facilities, expand current facilities, do nothing (and face the indefinite stagnation of business) or it can construct storage mezzanine platforms.

Storage platforms can be custom-fitted to existing layouts. They can be designed with any number of treaded or grated stairways to provide easy and safe platform access from multiple locations.
