The Benefits of a Shelf-Supported Warehouse Mezzanine

Mezzanines are incredibly versatile and can be adapted to most warehouse settings. However, some adaptations may be necessary for certain settings. For instance, what if your warehouse can’t make room for the necessary support structure required for a mezzanine? Are you out of luck when it comes to this great space-making solution? Not at all, and DAK Equipment & Engineering can help you find the right solution in a shelf-supported mezzanine.

Why You Might Want a Shelf-Supported Mezzanine

When it comes to a traditional mezzanine, warehouses occasionally lose some of their floor space to supportive structures such as columns and braces. With a shelf-supported mezzanine, though, you won’t lose any of your floor space. In fact, you may gain some storage space with the addition of shelves to properly support the structure above. This solution could also be more cost effective since you’ll be able to avoid many of the construction costs associated with traditional mezzanines and their support structures.

DAK Equipment & Engineering Can Help You Find the Right Mezzanine

So should you go with a traditional warehouse mezzanine or one supported by shelving underneath? It’s going to depend on the layout of your warehouse, your needs, and your budget. The best thing to do is contact DAK Equipment & Engineering and speak with one of our warehouse experts. They’ll help you determine which option is the right one for you based on your budget and needs, then help you place an order for your mezzanine and get it installed. You can call us or contact us through our website to get started!

Stay Fast and Flexible with Industrial Conveyor Systems

We discussed in a recent blog about how keeping your warehouse fast and flexible is key to increasing your profitability. Industrial conveyor systems are another way that you can do this for your warehouse.

How to Use Conveyor Systems to Stay Fast

Conveyors can greatly increase productivity in your warehouse. That’s because they eliminate a lot of unnecessary labor. Instead of physically walking products from one point to another, warehouse workers can put items on the conveyor and send them off on their own while they focus on the task. It automates a task that doesn’t require skilled labor and instead refocuses skilled labor on the next necessary task. Conveyor systems also reduce the number of touches required to get something out the door as well as the amount of time that it takes to get them there.

How to Use Conveyor Systems to Stay Flexible

One of the benefits of industrial conveyor systems is their ability to be flexible. Conveyor systems can be motorized or manual, run up and down inclines, or provide quick sorting beds to increase picking and sorting. Because of the number of different conveyor systems on the market, there is a solution for every warehouse and every budget. Plus, many conveyor systems can work together, so if you find that you later need to expand your conveyor system, you won’t run into many issues and should be able to expand it easily to meet your needs.

How to Cut Costs with the Right Industrial Shelves

Some warehouses assume that if they have enough space for storage, they are doing fine. That could be true. But they could also be missing out on ways to significantly increase their warehouse’s profits by cutting costs. If you are running out of space, this is also an opportunity for you to look at your shelves and find ways to cut costs and add more to your bottom line.

Start With Your Industrial Shelves

Choosing the right industrial shelving system for your warehouse can help you cut costs. First, it can help you use your space more efficiently. Switching from stationary industrial shelves to push back shelving can help you increase your warehouse capacity by 30% or more. That helps save costs on moving expenses, rent on a larger facility, and can actually decrease your labor expenses.

How to Choose the Right Shelving

You have endless options when it comes to the type of industrial shelving you want to put in your warehouse. The best thing to do is work with the experienced team at DAK Equipment & Engineering who can help you evaluate your inventory, the needs of your warehouse, and your space to determine which shelving option is the right one for you. Once you’ve determined the right type of shelving, the DAK Equipment & Engineering can help you place an order for new shelving or alert you to deals on second-hand shelving that fits your needs and your budget.
