Staircases

A reputation for creation & innovation

Staircases can be purely functional – a way to get goods and staff from ground to first floor level – or they can be the feature of a reception or shop, a statement of the company image. Governed by building regulation requirements, stairs fall generally in to three categories: general storage access sometimes referred to as Part K, office or production access being known as Part M staircases and public access which has added requirements to a standard part M staircase.

The overall look of a feature staircase can be greatly enhanced by the choice of handrail of which there are a number of options – stainless steel and glass, metal mesh infill panels, wire or steel rod horizontal bars to name but a few. The treads can also be supplied in a chequerplate finish, mild steel for carpeting or even hardwood treads and risers.

Most stairs now have to have a midlanding to conform to building regulations. However, for smaller units wishing to install a storage mezzanine, there is the Part K Utility stair. This a straight flight staircase with an open tread. It is normally at the discretion of building control whether they will allow the use for this type of staircase.

mezzanine-staircase-storage-access

Storage Access

A standard part K stair is 1m wide with a midlanding after a maximum of 12 risers. The treads have to be enclosed and there has to be handrail to both sides. A Part K utility stair is a straight flight option but can only be a maximum of 16 risers or 3040mm in height.

mezzanine-staircase-disabled-access

Ambulant Disabled Access

Part M disabled access staircases have 1200mm wide enclosed treads with a nosing of a contrasting colour. A midlanding is provided after a maximum of 12 risers. The handrail has a curved profile.

Public Access

For retail environments a Part M compliant staircase must be provided. The handrail has to have no gap larger than 100mm and should not have horizontal bars so children could climb up them. Handrail can be provided in steel balustrade, decorative mesh panels or stanless steel and glass.

Balustrade

Creative design, proactive approach

Balustrades obvious main purpose is to stop not only personnel but objects falling from a mezzanine floor. Equally, it can be feature of a foyer or retail shop and can make a uninspiring entrance area look far more professional.

As a barrier to stop people falling, it does have to be calculated to take the force of objects pushing against it. This is again dependent on the usage of the floor – a retail floor for instance requires a far greater loading that a standard storage handrail.

Most storage mezzanines have mild steel posts with a top and midrail and a kickboard running at floor level to stop small items falling over the edge. For retail and office foyers however, there is variety of option for infill panels – be it glass, mesh, solid panels or wire.

Stainless Steel

A common site in retail stores – stainless steel post and top rail with glass infill panels. Continuous glass without the uprights can also be supplied with support coming from a stainless channel secured at floor level.

Mesh or perforated panels

These come in a multitude of shapes and sizes and can be mild steel or stainless steel finish. The supporting posts can also be stainless or mild steel.

Railing

A time proven system of upright bars with a circular top rail.
