How to Conserve Space in a Warehouse

When utilising a warehouse, it is very important to be space conscious. If space conservation is ignored, a warehouse can become disorganised and crammed, making it very difficult to work in, let alone to store any new items.

At Warehouse Safety Solutions, we’re passionate about all things warehouse safety. Our years of experience tell us that an unorganised warehouse is a dangerous warehouse, and that’s why we’ve put this guide together. 

We also provide a range of safety and storage equipment that is applicable to most warehouses. If you’re looking to increase your storage space with the installation of a mezzanine floor Sydney, Melbourne and many other locations can be catered to.  

Ensure Everything has a Place

It may sound detrimental to conserving space, but if everything has a designed place to be in, it can do wonders for your warehouse space. If a warehouse is tidy and organised, it means that equipment can be stored properly, and does not take up more room than it requires. A clean warehouse means any junk items or rubbish can be clearly identified and removed.

If there is any equipment that sits around without being used, or has been made redundant with new purchases, then it is time to move those things on.

Not only can having a tidy and organised warehouse create more storage space, it also makes work safer and more efficient. 

Mezzanine Floors and Vertical Storage

When looking for more storage space, think vertical. Most warehouses are large and roomy, making them perfect for vertical storage.

Mezzanine floors are a type of partial floor that can be constructed on an existing structure. They were conceived with an idea to create more room in a large structure. 

Mezzanine floors can either be permanent or removable. These can be custom designed to suit the dimensions of the area they are being put in.

For warehouses, mezzanine floors tend to be made from steel and designed for easy mobility. 

One thing to consider with mezzanines is that they need to meet a number of safety regulations. An improper mezzanine can be dangerous, so it's best to leave installation to the experts.

Consider Extra Storage

Outsourcing storage with shipping containers or storage units can be a good investment if you are having a sudden influx of items.

While they might not be the best idea for long-term storage, storage units and shipping containers can really help you out in a bind, or allow you to store temporary items that won’t be with you long enough to justify a designated place.
