How to Make Mezzanine Staircases Work for You

When thinking about adding mezzanine flooring to your office, warehouse, or retail space, it is important to consider your staircase design. At Central Storage Systems, we are able to provide you with a design specifically for your project, having gained lots of experience in supplying and installing mezzanine staircases.

Choosing a staircase may seem simple, but there are a few things you will want to contemplate based on the type of space it will be installed into, remembering that in some case you might want a combination or just one individual staircase.

Standard Staircase

A general access staircase is the standard option you need when you’ve got to get from A to B, when A and B are two different floors. The staircase you opt for may depend on whether your mezzanine floor is a retail space, storage space, or an office. Our standard mezzanine staircase is best for storage spaces, as they are a practical option, but not necessarily the prettiest option. For a purely functional purpose, this staircase should only be climbed by specifically trained personnel.

Decorative Staircase

Whether you want a creative space-saving spiral staircase or a particularly decorative staircase, our feature staircases allow you to play with the design element. This option can offer a funky look to retail spaces, or a slick, modern appearance to office spaces. So, if you want to impress your customers and clients, this could be the one for you. With a greater emphasis on safety and comfort, this choice always features hand rails.

External Staircase

An external staircase can be fitted for a variety of reasons, with the most common purpose being for use as a fire escape. For when health and safety regulations need to be followed, a staircase placed on the exterior walls of a building is not just a desire, but a necessity. This staircase can be used by employees to escape the premises in the event of a fire or any other kind of emergency. They are obviously not something you would want to use on a day-to-day basis, so this option would be best coupled with another kind of interior staircase.
