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.
