Are you considering making better use of your available warehouse, factory or office space using mezzanine flooring? Contact us here at The Office Design Company to get the low-down on whether you will need mezzanine floor fire protection to comply with UK building regulations.

In most instances mezzanine floor fire protection is not required if the platform is to be used for storage only, provided it meets certain criteria. The floor must not be more than 20 metres in any one direction, must be less than 400 sq metres in total, and must not be more than 50% of the building’s floor area into which it is being fitted. When used for offices, product production, retail areas, or where staff are continuously operating, fire protection for mezzanine floors will be required.

The size of your mezzanine platform, and what it will be used for, will determine whether the structure requires 60 minute fire protection, or 90 minute fire protection. Even though you propose to use an area purely for storage, if the operation requires the presence of a permanent storeman, fire protection will almost definitely be required.

At The Office Design Company, we’ll be happy to visit your site and work out the kind of fire protection you would need for a mezzanine floor — whether that’s adding fire protection to an existing scheme, or providing it in conjunction with our mezzanine floor installation service.

Fire Rated Mezzanines

We’re able to offer mezzanine floors that are fire rated to 60 or 90 minutes and we’ll be able to determine your exact needs in our initial free consultation.

Metals of all types are extremely high thermal conductors, meaning that in the event of fire, heat will quickly transfer through to the stanchions and metal walkways of a mezzanine floor. In the worst case scenario heating to a level where the metal is too hot to walk on, effectively trapping staff and customers on the upper levels. At The Office Design Company all our fire protection measures are designed and installed to comply with the latest UK fire protection regulations.

Working under your assigned project manager, our in-house design team will produce a set of drawings using the latest state-of-the-art CAD software. All our products are developed and produced under one roof, and installed by our own highly skilled teams of fitters and electricians to provide you the highest quality flooring and partitioning systems at the most competitive prices.

In most cases 60 minute fire protection will be sufficient. However, if the property is to be used as a retail outlet, such as a shopping centre, or the size of the mezzanine floor dictates it, the local authority may well specify 90 minutes fire protection.
