Mezzanine Floor Types
The most common type of mezzanine, a single tier floor provides additional storage over one floor level.
By extending the columns height and load carrying capacity, a mezzanine floor can be extended in height to accommodate two, three or even four floor levels. This is particularly useful in high buildings.
Generally, if a mezzanine floor is used for offices or measures over 50% of the total space then fire protection is required. This usually consists of column cladding, fascia boards and suspended ceilings to the underside of the mezzanine. HSS can supply and install all necessary fire protection as part of the overall project.
