Does your mezzanine floor need to be fire rated?
In certain applications or situations, it may be necessary to provide fire rating to your new or existing mezzanine floor when judged against the current Building Regulations. This need not be as scary as it first sounds or add a massive amount to the cost of the overall mezzanine floor project. If you are planning an office fit out, refurbishment or warehouse fit out, this should be high up on the list of priorities. It need not be as scary as it first sounds or add a massive amount to the cost of the overall mezzanine floor project.
Here at aci™ we are able to simply and cost effectively fire rate your mezzanine floor using a variety of methods ranging from a basic galvanised finish to high specification plasterboard ceilings and column casings that also transform the look of the mezzanine floor. Fire rating is achieved on the mezzanine floor with the installation of a ceiling (usually suspended) to the underside of the floor, capping the exposed edges of the mezzanine structure with fascia and covering any exposed structural columns supporting the mezzanine floor casings.
Normally 60 minutes fire protection is all that is needed, but in some multi tier mezzanine floor installations, where the travel distances are deemed as high, it may be necessary to specify a 90 minute fire protection and / or enclosures around staircases giving a protected means of escape. The latter is usually always required on retail mezzanines. We have put together a handy guide to the main mezzanine floor fire rating regulations on our blog.
