How to Fire Protect a Mezzanine Floor
The prerequisite for fire protection rest on the application, dimensions and extent of the mezzanine floor.
Mezzanine flooring which is not permanently occupied and infrequently accessed (used for storage) does not need to be fire rated as long as it is fitted with an appropriate fire detection and alarm system.
Mezzanine floors that are occupied at all times like office mezzanines, mezzanine floors that support assembly and manufacturing processes will require fire protection.
The most common means of fire protecting mezzanine floors is through the use of four key elements of insulation, column casings, a suspended ceiling, bulkheads/fascias and cavity barriers.
