What is a Mezzanine Floor?
A Mezzanine Floor is an intermediate floor between main floors of a building, and therefore typically not counted among the overall floors of a building.
The majority of mezzanine floors, which HMF supply and install, are free standing structures and not fixed to the fabric of the building. However this can be achieved where necessary.
A Mezzanine Floor can be designed for a wide range of applications and usages including Storage, Offices and Production. The loading of a mezzanine floor can range from 3.5Kn/m2 to loads in excess of 9.6Kn/m2 and will be designed by HMF to suit your requirements.
Where a mezzanine floor is used exclusively for storage, it is often called a storage platform or a raised floor. Storage platforms that are small in size can receive dispensation from building control for the need to fire rate and are therefore very cost effective.
A Mezzanine Floor that is used where people have permanent workstations, offices or members of the public have access to, need to be fire protected. Fire rating a mezzanine floor consists of a 1 hour suspended ceiling, 1 hour fascia protection to any exposed edges of the floor and 1 hour column casings. HMF can advise you on what fire protection will be required to satisfy the building regulations approval.
Installing a mezzanine floor can appear a daunting task, however HMF have the experience and specialist knowledge to take your company through every stage of the process, from design to approval and installation, making it easier for you to realise the full potential of your building.
