Mezzanine Floor with Fire Protection


A new start-up company supplying disposable PPE to the NHS following the outbreak of Covid 19 chose Simple Mezzanines to design and build their new mezzanine storage floor complete with fire protection to underside.

The floor will soon have handrail and a pallet gate to the exposed edge – client requested that we leave it off whilst they load the floor and install racking…

The job was started in September 2020 and completed within just over a week – to everybody’s satisfaction as always!

Simple Mezzanines Review

This Simple Mezzanines review from Kerim Suavi, General Manager of Crowbond comes highly recommended:

‘What a fantastic company! From design to completion all members of the Simple Mezzanines team have been reliable, helpful, honest, professional and above all else they have provided value. We were so happy with Simple Mezzanines in the first job they completed for us that they have just completed a second mezzanine at our premises and once again we couldn’t be happier with the result. Big thanks to Bob and Graham and his installation team for their effortless execution on both jobs!’

Specifying Mezzanine Finish and Upgrades

There are vast possibilities for specifying your mezzanine finish and upgrades. For instance, you could specify upgraded handrail designs and different paint finishes to suit your environment.

Mezzanines follow pretty much a standard design irrespective of their proposed use and are either:

  • Hot rolled main steel structure
  • Cold rolled joists
  • Particleboard or steel decking

From there on in, it’s the way the floor is developed which changes its overall appearance to the mezzanine finish:

  • Retail mezzanine floors have partitions, floor coverings, upmarket stairs and balustrades added.
  • Commercial mezzanine floors have things like carpet tiles laid and partitioned enclosures erected to create individual offices
  • Industrial mezzanine floors tend to be left very much as they were when they were initially built. They have little further development beyond the addition of materials handling and storage products.

You may think your application would benefit from a more polished look. One of the main ways to achieve this is by specifying high quality stair and handrail finishes.

Glass infill panels, stainless steel components, powder coated steelwork in non-standard RAL or BS colours can all be supplied. These can all, when done well, add a great deal to the aesthetic of a bog standard mezzanine.

Simple Mezzanines can provide many different mezzanine finishes and designs to hand railing and stairs. We’re always happy to discuss your requirements at the initial investigation stage.

The image shows us installing a mezzanine floor, which we originally built some years ago. We were recently asked to dismantle and re-build the mezzanine floor at the client’s new premises.

All we had to change was the decking, since the installation was still pristine and had stood up to the rigours of daily use very well.

Take a closer look at the picture… The stair serves two separate sides of the floor and is located to allow travel distances from each level, so that the reaches from each side is minimised.

Glass Deck Inserts for Mezzanine Flooring

Mezzanine Floor for a Leisure Centre

Last year we completed two mezzanine floors for a leisure centre based in Manchester, which runs an inflatable fun park. The floors were designed to support inflatable slides and cafe facilities. The mezzanine floor to the right has both 4m & 6m levels. There’s even a gangplank to allow users to dive off using a zip-wire!

Simple Mezzanines were awarded the job of building the mezzanine floor for the leisure centre because they’d already installed the original cafe mezzanine floor in 2015. The client remains delighted following  their recent installation during October 2019.

Mezzanine Floor Review from Client

Glass Deck Inserts for Mezzanine Flooring

We recently manufactured and installed a new suite of mezzanine flooring in a leisure environment. The client wanted infilled handrailing with a combination of simple perforations and corporate logos. They also asked if we could do some glass panels in the deck. This allowed their customers to view the action taking place below whilst they enjoyed the cafe facilities!

Simple Mezzanines sought advice and provided what the client wanted for their mezzanine flooring.  We formed fire rated bulkheads below the glass panels to hide the floor steelwork. We also applied painted borders around the panes to hide the steel seating channels upon which the glass sits.

Customers can now view the area beneath the mezzanine flooring whilst standing on the glass inserts (if they wish to).

Mezzanine Floors Can be Installed Anywhere

Mezzanine floors can be installed even in old airfield hangars like the one featured below . This particular building combines particleboard and open steel mesh decking. This allows electric pallet truck use around the archive shelving, whilst still allowing light from the first floor area to permeate below the new mezzanine.

The moral of the story is that mezzanine floors are not limited to a certain type of building. They can be installed almost anywhere.
