Not only do work platforms aid in the maximization of warehouse space, but they offer other benefits as well. A work platform provides a significant tax advantage compared to building an addition. Assuming they’re properly constructed, prefabricated work platforms will usually meet building codes and OSHA regulations and are quite cost-effective to install.
And while you may opt to use your work platform for additional workspace, the sky’s the limit when it comes to possible applications. A few of the more common include storage, office space, dust cover, tool crib, retail backrooms, security enclosures, and lunch/break rooms. However, should you choose to use your platform for additional workspace, you can rest assured knowing AK Material Handling Systems carries Wildeck Work Platforms, engineered and manufactured with durability in mind.
