turn overhead space into additional storage, office space or picking area

Do you need more space?
Do your products cover the floor? 

Raised Storage Areas is one of the fastest and least expensive storage solutions to double your space in your factory, warehouse or distribution centre.

A raised storage area is a free standing independent floor built inside a house, building or warehouse which divides the space between the floor to ceiling, to add an additional floor level. 

Safe and secure, raised floor storage will give you access to an overhead work, storage or office area without interrupting ground-level workflow.

Our raised storage areas meet the highest design standards, and can be easily integrated with stairs, handrails, conveyors, pallet gates, and a host of other lifting and loading devices.

Raised storage areas can be built from Pallet racking components and only attached to the concrete slab floor that it is built on.

For heavy duty floors structural supports will still be required. For medium duty floors pallet racking and beams support the floor.

Versatile designs are available with a fast lead time.

Raised Storage Area Options:

  • Pallet Racking can continue from ground level through to the floor level.
  • Second level can be a clear area for larger products.
  • Shelving can be extra deep for larger items.
  • Beams can be left out under floor for larger items.
  • Picking shelves can be spaced narrow to high depending on the product you carry.
