How to Build a Safe Mezzanine Floor

During a consultation with our team of experts, we work together to design the safest, most cost-effective, and beneficial mezzanine flooring layout for your business. We always ensure that your mezzanine floor is easy to use so that your customers and workforce can escape the area in the case of a fire or other hazard. It is a legal requirement to follow Building Regulations Part B2 Fire Safety when building mezzanine flooring. Our team have many years of experience installing high-quality flooring for the business sectors.

Depending on the size of your mezzanine floor you will need more than one staircase with handrails to ensure a safe environment for your team. Multiple exit points in the event of a fire, or when your building suddenly has to evacuate is crucial so that everyone can safely leave the building without the risk of panic or injuries. We can recommend the ideal layout of exit points, staircases and planned escape routes for your business, contact us today to learn more about fire protection and safety.
