Mezzanine Floor Fire Rating

Fire protection is an important part towards building regulations approval. If you require it all depends on a number of elements and listed below will give you a guide to see if your floor will need it.

Mezzanine floor fire protection usually includes a 30 or 60-minute fire rated suspended ceiling installed to the underside of the mezzanine, with a fascia / bulk head to all exposed sides of mezzanine floor. The fascia / bulk head fills the void between the ceiling and underside of the chipboard decking on all exposed sides.

Each steel column that supports the mezzanine floor will also have a PVC cladding to give them a 60-minute fire rating.

We can provide the following fire rating:

  • Suspended ceilings
  • Column casings
  • Cavity barriers
  • Bulkheads / fascias
  • Staircase enclosures
  • Fire walls
  • Sprinkler systems
  • Smoke detection systems
  • Emergency lighting

The diagram below is a simple guide to if your project might require fire-rating, however we will always discuss this with you in detail as fire-rating and building regulations are a complex matter.
