Frequently Asked Questions

How wide are mezzanine stairs?

The width of mezzanine stairs depends on whether they are used in industrial or commercial settings. Industrial mezzanine stairs, which are accessible only to specific workers as part of their work duties, are constructed in widths from 24” to 60”. Commercial mezzanine stairs, accessible to the general public or part of the structure of a building, are built in widths of 36” to 60”.

What is the purpose of a mezzanine?

The purpose of a mezzanine is to increase the usable floor space of a building without increasing the size of the building itself. A mezzanine serves as an intermediate floor between levels of the building and can be used for storage, equipment or work areas.

Do mezzanine stairs need to be enclosed?

Mezzanine stairs do not need to be enclosed. However, they must comply with other applicable OSHA or IBC standards.

What is a mezzanine story?

A mezzanine story is an intermediate level of a building that is located between the main floors. Usually, a mezzanine story is not counted in the total number of the floors of the building.
