Mezzanine Floor Maintenance
Mezzanine Floor Maintenance and Best PracticesWe take full responsibility for ensuring that your mezzanine floor project is designed in compliance with all current building regulations, quality standards, and best practice guidance, and for submission of plans to achieve the required consents.
However, when it comes to mezzanine floor maintenance and best practices, it’s important that business owners look at ways they can keep things safe for their workers.
We ensure that safety, access and fire regulations are taken into account at the design stage, and we even provide higher specification moisture-resistant decking as standard to ensure that our floors remain safe throughout their service life.As a minimum, mezzanine floors should be fitted with handrails and edge protection. Invicta Mezzanine Floors’ unique edge-protection system provides a well-designed and practical solution that integrates both a handrail and footplate together in one and is powder coated to give a durable finish with excellent gloss retention.
These kinds of preventative measures can stop staff from hurting themselves while working at a height and prevent valuable products or machinery from being damaged by a fall.
Mesh panels can also be utilised to stop smaller objects from dropping over the sides. Pallet gates are perfect for securing staff from open areas, for example when loading up pallets.All our mezzanine floors conform to structural steel code BS 5950: Parts 1 and 5: Structural use of steel building, the general requirements of the Building Regulations and with BRE Digest 437.
Ancillaries, such as staircases, handrails and toe plates, are designed to conform to BS 5395: Parts 1 and 3: Stairs, ladders, and walkways and the Building Regulations Part K Stairways, ramps and guards. The design is to suit the loading category of intended use as covered by BS 6399: Part 1: Code of practice for dead and imposed loads.
