Mezzanine floors are often found in business premises like offices or warehouses. They are intermediate levels between the main floors of a building and are particularly useful to section off part of the space. They are ideal to create an individual office, a staff social area or even just for additional storage space.
The majority of the mezzanine floors fitted by HMF are free-standing structures that are not fixed to the fabric of the building, however we can arrange for this where necessary. We design mezzanine floors for all sorts of applications, so whatever your requirement is, we’re sure we can meet it. The loading of these floors can range from 3.5kN/m² to loads in excess of 9.6kN/m² and are designed by us to suit your individual business needs.
Fire protection – know the rules
Storage platforms or raised floors are used exclusively for storage and can be particularly cost effective – ideal if you’re on a tight budget. They can receive dispensation from building control bodies for the need to fire rate, drastically cutting your costs, so if you need more storage, this is an ideal option.
If you are using your mezzanine floor for workstations, offices, or if the general public will have access to it as part of a retail store, you need to ensure you have fire protection. The rating requires one hour for each of the elements including the suspended ceiling, fascia protection to any exposed edges of the floor and the column casings. This might sound complicated, but HMF will advise you on exactly what fire protection you need to ensure you satisfy the latest building regulations.
