How to Escape from Mezzanine Flooring

It’s always advised to be prepared for any situation no-one wants to think about what to do in the case of a fire, but it’s essential in a workplace environment. Escaping a mezzanine floor in the event of a fire is more complex when compared to a normal business floor, keeping your composure is key in these particular situations.

Having a clear means of escape from your commercial mezzanine flooring is a legal requirement, according to Building Regulations Part B (Fire Safety). This means that your mezzanine floor design will have to adapt to these regulations, including elements such as multiple staircases if you have a large number of employees, handrails, and an easy exit layout. We can also create bespoke mezzanine flooring fire protection features such as bright colours on staircases, highlighting a clear exit route.
