Mezzanine Flooring is a floor built within another building, for purposes such as storage, display of stock, viewing purposes, and allows utilities such as extra offices to be constructed upon them.
Quality mezzanines are constructed to a very high standard, using only the best available materials such as the latest lightweight steels and high-quality powder-coated ancillaries.
All good quality mezzanines are designed and manufactured, to meet BRE Digest 437 requirements, as well as all the relevant British standards. This results in quality mezzanines that are acknowledged to be the best in design, quality, and finish.
Steel mezzanine should conform to the structural steel code BS 5950 parts 1 and 5. All ladders and walkways should also conform to the appropriate building regulations, and this will ensure high specifications and good quality throughout the completed construction.

Mezzanine floors provide the perfect storage space for all kinds of items, and warehouses and shops with high roofs are ideal for mezzanine floor installations, with offices often being constructed below them.
A typical mezzanine will be constructed from steel sections, and the elevated floor will have some type of safety barrier in the form of handrails. The floor itself will be accessed by a staircase which will also have handrails.
