Mezzanine Staircases

Staircases can be installed as a feature to encourage visitors to explore more of your business premises or they can be a functional aspect of your mezzanine flooring. Whatever your requirements may be, Spacelink can help. Our skilled designers and installers will guide you through the different options for your premises, ensuring that the final result adheres to building regulations and your specific requirements. 

Staircase Options

The type of staircase you choose depends on the type of commercial premises you have and the purpose of the staircase. Industrial staircases are perfect for warehouses, manufacturing spaces and logistics premises, and are created from durable, hardwearing materials for a secure structure. 

This type of staircase provides clear access and middle or top landings. They can be customised to blend with the rest of the interior, with the option of mesh panels to add extra safety and security, or walkways between platforms. Industrial staircases are built to withstand impact and high forces for a robust finish.

Another option is to install a staircase that serves as an elegant aesthetic feature to your mezzanine floor. Retail premises, offices, restaurants and public buildings can benefit from this type of staircase, where the visual look of the staircase is just as essential as the functionality. 

Our designers will colour-match the structure to match the rest of the surroundings and also ensure that it’s easy to maintain and wear-resistant, for a long-lasting finish. Feature staircases, while visually appealing, should still be practical – we’ll ensure that the final design meets the necessary building regulations. 

Design and Installation

If your mezzanine floor is being used for public use, such as in a restaurant or a retail space, you’ll need to have a public access staircase to comply with regulations. This means that your staircase will require a handrail and panelling, whether that’s made from mesh, glass, vertical bars or steel. However, if the staircase is for industrial purposes, there will be requirements for the width of the staircase and handrails installed where required. 

Our designers will work with you to design a staircase that meets compliance for health and safety, while also working visually with your commercial premises. From customer-facing locations to practical solutions to enable staff or suppliers to move between floors, Spacelink will create a design that perfectly meets your mezzanine staircase requirements.
