Fire Safety and Mezzanine Floors

Installing mezzanine flooring may seem like a complicated process but at First Floors, our experts can assist you with any questions that you may have.

From building regulations to planning permission, there are a lot of things to consider when it comes to installing mezzanine flooring. Our team of specialists have compiled a list of answers to some of the questions you may have: don’t be afraid to ask our installation team for further information.

Do I Need Planning Permission?

In the majority of cases, planning permission isn’t necessary when it comes to installing mezzanine flooring. Often, a mezzanine floor is demountable, so it doesn’t affect the structure of the building; it is worth discussing with your installation team, just so you know all the details.

How Long Will it Take?

We can fit up 70 square metres of mezzanine flooring per day, but this can change depending on the site. The area that you’re having the mezzanine floor installed needs to be cordoned off and made as clear as possible. We promise to create a new business environment with minimum fuss and disruption.

What Regulations Does My Mezzanine Flooring Have to Be Compliant With?

Your mezzanine floors should be compliant with Building Regulations 2000; Structure: Approved Document A; Fire Safety: Approved Document B; Stairs, ramps and guards: Approved Document K and Means of access of disabled: Approved Document M. Talk these regulations over with your installation team to find out more about what they mean for you.

Are There Any Additional costs in Having Mezzanine Flooring Installed?

The only additional costs that come from having mezzanine flooring installed come from fire protection, emergency lighting, smoke and fire alarms and relevant safety signage that you may need. Discussing costs with your installation team is a good idea: at First Floors, it is even possible to offer a second-hand mezzanine floor in some cases if you are looking to save money.
