Underside – Fissured tiles are fitted across the entire span of the underside delaying the time for fire and heat to reach the structural floor.
Columns – Moulded around the columns fire resistant castings work to protect the columns which hold the deck from extreme heat. These can be either galvanised or colour coded for visibility.
Edges – Coated fascia is placed around the edges including stairway and open loading areas.
Cavity Barriers – Where the space between the floor and ceiling is over 20m vertical cavity barriers are fitted within the mezzanine ceiling, concealing any pocket openings to prevent smoke seeping through.
All of the above allow up to one hour of protection. Trying to understand the regulations and requirements around mezzanine floor fire safety can often seem very complicated. This is why WSL take care of all aspects of fire safety and building regulations on your behalf. We work closely with regulating bodies and officers so you don’t have too, before passing all approved safety documentation to you.
