Warehouse Longspan Racking and Mezzanine Racking are both assembled structures. In fact, Longspan Racking can be said to be the predecessor of Mezzanine Racking. On the basis of Longspan Racking, multi-storey floors are designed and combined with cargo elevators, it becomes Rack supported mezzanine. Since it is said that Longspan Racking is the basis of Rack supported mezzanine, Let BR RACKING explain in detail the difference between Mezzanine Racking and Longspan Racking Shelves.
Longspan Racking does not have the extreme use of upward space like Rack supported mezzanine, and its height is mostly below 2.5m, but its layer spacing can be adjusted according to needs. It is also because the shelves are often not high, so when using Longspan Racking Shelves to store goods, most of them need to be stored manually, which means that the stored goods cannot be too heavy. Usually Longspan Racking is used in auto parts, electronic parts and other fields. And the warehouse where it is located should not be too high, otherwise it will be an invisible loss if the upper space is not fully utilized.
The Mezzanine Racking loft-style design makes full use of the upper space. Mezzanine Racking is not as heavy as Longspan Racking because of the utilization of the upper space. In fact, most Mezzanine Racking uses cold-rolled steel floor slabs, so there is no need to worry about the load-bearing capacity.
Rack supported mezzanine is often 2~3 layers, so the storage of goods is mostly stored by manual and mechanical cooperation, and the overall efficiency is higher. At the same time, it can also meet the needs of a wide variety of goods that need to be classified and stored, making it more convenient to find and manage. For the stored goods, the situation that the goods are squeezed against each other can be minimized, the integrity of the goods is guaranteed, and the material loss of the goods in the storage process is reduced.
As mentioned above, if the warehouse height is not very high, Longspan Racking is a better choice. Rack supported mezzanine is a good choice if you need to make full use of the upper space and have relatively high requirements on shelf storage space and classification.
