Determine The Ceiling Height You Need

If you are a distributor, the higher the ceiling height the better.

Determine whether you stack 2, 3 or more pallets high. Typically you need 24’ for stacking 3 pallets high. This can vary on the size and weight of your products. Be sure to take into account the clear height not just the overall height.

Sprinkler systems, roof structural members and HVAC frequently reduce the clear height. If you are a manufacturer or service provider you may want lower ceilings; especially if you are going to air condition the entire space.

The fewer cubic feet you are cooling, the lower the electric bill.

If you need a lot of lighting or electrical drops a lower ceiling is also beneficial.
