Work platforms are not automatically a superior choice to the previous two options, but they stand to offer several potential advantages over them. Here at AK, we offer Wildeck work platforms. Perhaps the most obvious of these advantages is the fact that no additional space will need to be leased or built. The work platform is unique in its ability to fully utilize the unused vertical space present in most warehouses. Most warehouses are built with relatively high ceilings, and it’s common for this space to go completely unused. With a work platform, one can essentially add an entirely new level to their warehouse, significantly increasing workspace.
Another significant advantage to installing a work platform is the ability to expand it as warehouse operations expand. With a building addition, there is a finite amount of space that is added. Once that space is used up, another addition will have to be built, or space will have to be leased elsewhere. If a work platform is installed, it can be expanded as necessary, offering greater flexibility. Of course, cost is virtually always considered when planning an expansion, and this is yet another area in which work platforms hold a significant advantage. To be specific, a work platform can double or triple existing warehouse space for as much as 80% less than the cost of an addition. Eighty percent less cost is nothing to sneeze at, and these savings make the work platform an extremely appealing alternative to building additions or leasing additional space.
