Mezzanine Flooring FAQ's
If you have any other questions we are just a call away and will help you as much as we can, though we also advise our comprehensive mezzanine flooring installation service as an ideal route because it leaves us to take care of everything for you.
As a supply only service we are always happy to offer as much advice as possible, but many of the details of the fitting will be down to your chosen installers and how they choose to approach the project.
Do I need planning permission for a mezzanine floor installation?
Only if your premises has shared car parking or includes parking belonging to the council
Do I need building regulation approval for a mezzanine?
Yes you do, and we can help advise you through the whole process and provide essential materials such as engineering drawings, calculations, specifications and liaison with your inspector. Typically approvals are turned around in just a few days.
Should I inform my landlord?
Definitely, they will probably want approval on your design drawings.
What kind of fire ratings and measures are required?
It varies depending on the size of the mezzanine, the size of the space it is in, the number of people working on it and the general purpose it is used for. We incorporate fireproofing and ratings that comply with all legislation as required, and will advise you of any additional measures we think will help improve safety further.
How do I know what kind of decking or loading I need?
That is something our design and planning service can help you through; let us know how you want to use your mezzanine floor and we can figure out what needs to go into it to meet safety and regulations compliance.
What about installations of power and lighting?
Mezzanines will almost always need some new power, light or heating supply installations and our comprehensive mezzanine flooring installations include it all, fitted to the highest standard by fully qualified technicians and engineers.
How long will it take and how disruptive is an installation?
It depends on your business and the size of the install, once we have carried out an initial survey we can easily make an estimate on the schedule and an important part of our installation planning service includes scheduling around your business times to limit the disruption as much as possible.
What else do I need to think about?
We will design in essentials such as smoke detection, emergency lighting and fire exit signs, beyond that our design service ensures we clearly understand your requirements and can advise on any extra equipment you might need.
