Size

It’s likely you already know the size of floor you require, but it’s important to be flexible.

Floor Use

Consider the reason for the floor, is it to expand warehousing facilities? Increase the efficiency of automation processes? Is it for customer use in a retail store? Each of these different uses will have an impact on the overall design and additional ancillaries. We have installed floors across various industries throughout the past twenty-six years, why not take a look at the industry sector that is most appropriate to you: RetailOffice & Storage, Warehousing, Production, Automation.

Fire protection

Fire protection and mezzanine floors are covered under building regulations, depending on several factors a floor may not need to be fire rated. Don’t worry, we will advise whether the floor will require this kind of protection including specific requirements such as fire walls, ceilings and sprinkler systems.

Handrail

Handrail is required on all exposed edges of a mezzanine floor for health and safety purposes. Depending on the purpose of the floor you may decide to go for a standard industrial handrail or a feature handrail which are more suited to a retail or office environment. Handrail can also be customised to suit company branding and aesthetics for customer facing floors.

Staircasing

We design staircases unique to each floor, the number of staircases needed will depend on the size and design of the floor. Take a look at our staircase page for more guidance.
