What Are Walkways?

Walkways are utilized in warehouses and storage facilities to use vertical spaces for optimizing the storage space. Walkways are a flexible and versatile solution for your storage facility as they can effectively double the square footage of your existing storage area by utilizing the vertical space. These walkways are different from Mezzanine Flooring Systems since they are not free standing structures and are only installed with high rise racking systems.

Since moving in between the racks has to be convenient and safe, our walkways are designed keeping all this in mind. Gujrat Steel has expertise in offering a wide range of walkways for various facilities ensuring that the top half of the racking system is accessed easily as well as safely, without risking your employees’ life on unsteady ladders or spending a lot of money and time on operating forklifts.

What Are Mezzanine Flooring Systems?

Mezzanine Flooring System increase your floor space within your existing space. This system is a semi-permanent floor system usually installed in buildings, industrial or warehouse facilities in between two permanent original stories.

The Mezzanine Flooring System is frequently used in industrial operations like warehousing, manufacturing or distribution to increase existing space. It can be assured that our team will make sure that optimum level of storage is made available by strategically mapping out the vacant space.

There are several distinct aspects of using the Mezzanine Flooring System. Some of which are; it creates additional space without costly moving or building extensions and are therefore a cost effective option. They are quick to install and have no maintenance costs.

Not only do these flooring types help with maximizing storage space, but they allow for better organization within your work. When provided with an extra level of storage space, your once cluttered warehouse can now be organized in a way which allows you to maneuver your space more easily, and the introduction of shelving units will allow you to sift through large quantities of materials in a much more efficient manner.
