What are mezzanine staircases?
To answer that question, you really need to first understand what a mezzanine is. It is a word that many people have heard of, but not everyone is clear on what it means. In simple terms, it refers to a floor that is installed between two other floors. For example, in a high warehouse, a mezzanine would be a floor that is installed in between two floors, perhaps above the ground floor but before the first floor. Technically speaking, it is a floor that is intended to be walked on and used as a separate level, in contrast with a walkway or equipment platform which is simply used for holding equipment or parts of machines. Having said that, one of the main reasons why companies choose mezzanine floors is for storage, and our floors are equally well suited for walking on or holding equipment or stock.
The mezzanine staircase is therefore the flight of steps providing access to this interim level. It is intended to provide secure, safe and easy access between two levels and help you to make full use of the space available to you. Usually they are metal staircases, since steel provides strength and durability.

Why are mezzanine staircases important?
The obvious answer to this is that you need the steps to be able to access the level – without them you would have a wonderful new flooring level and no way to access it! However, to give a slightly more technical answer, there are certain safety standards and requirements that need to be met to ensure the safety of users. These vary depending on factors like the dimensions of the platform, number of users, etc. Fortunately, as the best choice of mezzanine staircase suppliers in Britain, we always ensure that we supply systems that are suitable for purpose and meet the relevant standards.
What are the benefits to using mezzanine staircase?
Because the steps are designed to be durable, they can stand up to continual daily use. This is important in a workplace, especially if users will be carrying boxes or heavy objects. They are also safe and easy to use, and incredibly simple to maintain and clean. This makes them an ideal choice, whether it will be for offices, a showroom or as warehouse stairs.
Are mezzanine staircases only used internally?
Primarily, they are installed internally for access between two levels. However, in some instances they are used as external staircases. For example, they can be a good choice for a fire escape. If you need an external flight of steps that is durable and manufactured to a high standard, please contact us as we are confident that we can help.
