The Side Stairs are a practical solution that allow safe and comfortable access to different heights. They can be adjusted to different degrees of inclination depending on the needs of each project and the space available.
One of the additional advantages of the side stairs is that they can be adjusted to three different degrees of inclination, allowing them to be adapted to the specific needs of each project. This makes them ideal for use in different contexts, whether in a commercial or residential environment.
You can add accessories or handrails (not included) to ensure the safety of users. However, the following considerations must be taken into account:
When the stairs are positioned at 45°, you can install the pre-configured side rail, providing a safety and design element.
For an inclination of 54°, you can purchase the necessary parts to create a custom railing.
However, when the inclination is 63°, the handrail option is not available due to the verticality.
The stairs are height-adjustable, so, they are compatible with any MezzaninesOnline mezzanine and other surfaces, provided that the HV matches that of the mezzanine to which it is to be anchored.
For greater versatility, the stairs adapt to different space configurations. They can be placed on either side of the mezzanine, either perpendicular or parallel to the beam. You can also use a
stair landing to make access easier.
Exterior stairs, parallel to the mezzanine. You will need a stair landing.
A different placement to our mezzanines.
Are the stairs compatible with other ranges?
Yes, our stairs are compatible with other ranges, provided that the height of the staircase matches the height of the mezzanine or surface to be reached.
In our online shop you will find a wide range of staircase models with different heights. This allows you to choose the one that best suits your needs and specific height.
If you wish to install a staircase in XL mezzanines, it is necessary to purchase the Adapter for accessories, which will allow you to integrate it properly.
Can the stairs be placed outdoors?
Yes, our products can be installed outdoors,although you should bear in mind a series of special considerations and carry out maintenance of the material to guarantee that they are in good condition. See this section for more details
Can the stairs be anchored to a mezzanine or construction wall?
Yes. They can be installed on a surface that is not a Mezzanines Oniline surface.
The customer must bear in mind that they are responsible for the strength of the joint and structure to which they are anchored.
How are the stairs anchored to the top?
If you need to anchor the stairs to a structure that is not a MezzaninesOnline structure, see the following details about the anchors:
Anchor A: References that have this anchor: 30501, 30401, 31003, 31301, 31102
Anchor B: References that have this anchor:
Anchor C: References that have this anchor: 30601, 30801
Do they meet the building regulation and can they be used inside a house to access the 2 nd floor?
What regulations do our stairs comply with? In MezzaninesOnline there are different types of staircases: some for private use, usually located in small spaces, some for general use, wider and more comfortable, suitable for workplaces or commercial premises. There are in place many regulations for staircases in the different countries in which MezzaninesOnline is present. Therefore, it is difficult to determine whether a staircase type complies with a particular normative.
Our stairs are designed by defining the general criteria for each type of staircase, so that these are well defined and checked against those in the regulations:
Rung tread and riser dimensions.
Permissible step and staircase loads.
However, some regulations also refer to very specific construction parameters and details, which must be interpreted by the customer.
Material of the step.
Railing and handrail design.
Type of riser.
Step nosing (or overlap between steps).
Ceiling height clearance.
There are very few international standards that cover the design of staircases, one of which is ISO 14122 "Safety of machinery. Permanent means of access to machinery and industrial installations", whose criteria are suitable for our category /easily-accessible-stairs . For all other regulations, the general criteria should be verified, which can be easily compared with the data in the Technical Data Sheets. Further details can be obtained from MezzaninesOnline.
Defining the intended use of the staircase is basic in most standards. Staircases are generally classified as service or private stairs, as well as general or public use stairs, the latter being more demanding.
If you have a specific regulation that your staircase must comply with, you can ask us and we will try to help you in your decision.
How can I turn the stairs up to allow the transit underneath them?
The anchor that joins the stairs to the mezzanine can attach the stairs with 4 or 2 screws. If you choose the configuration of just 2 screws, the stairs can pivot. In any case, the stairs have the same resistance.
Can the angle of inclination be changed?
Each model of stairs has an inclination and it cannot be changed unless otherwise stated. You must choose the stairs that best suit your needs.
Can I add extra steps?
The stairs include the maximum number of steps that are required in their maximum heights. The more the height is reduced, the less steps will be installed. However, you can acquire additional steps as spare parts, the number of steps is designed according to the inclination of each staircase though. An excessive number of steps would reduce the going available for treading, specially important when going down.
Can the railing of the stairs be taken off?
Yes, the railing of both sides of the stairs is removable and, therefore, it can be taken off. However, MezzaninesOnline recommends to install it for security and because they provide rigidity to the stairs as well.
On the other hand, the stairs include the railing; it is not possible to acquire them without the railing.
Can the spiral stairs be installed inside the mezzanine?
Check the the table with the specifications of each staircase.
Can I buy the stairs with just one side of railing?
No, you can’t.
How is it installed?
At least two adults are required to install mezzanines, (they do not need to be DIY professionals). It is recommended to use safety equipment such as gloves, boots, etc., to avoid any accidents.
For the mezzanine floors in the L and XL range, a scaffolding or ladder system may be required for work at height and manual or electric lifting equipment for the primary beams, especially if the structure is over 3 m high. All other ranges are easily lifted by hand.
You will need the following tools to install the mezzanines: tape measure, a spanner set for nuts and bolts and a screwdriver (an electric screwdriver makes the job much easier), a spirit level, hammer, drill and a cutting tool for the board (handsaw, jigsaw, circular saw...).
The mezzanine floors are packed and shipped by an external agency in a lorry provided with a lifting platform, so that the boxes can be unloaded on the ground. The order will be delivered at street level to the address specified by the customer.
If there are access restrictions, there could be additional costs due to the necessity of transferring the merchandise to a smaller vehicle.
In order to deliver mezzanines XL, the delivery location should be accessible to a truck/long trailer. Should you think there is any kind of restriction, please contact us. The customer should take care of the merchandise unloading process. That unloading should be made from the lateral sides of the truck (this kind of truck does not have a back liftgate). We deliver the product packed with pallets at the bottom, so its unloading should be made preferably with a forklift.
How do I get the product up to my home?
Don't be alarmed by the total weight of the product, the components are light and manageable, so you can move them easily and take them up in the lift.The heaviest components are the primary beams from the L range (86 lb), the rest of the ranges are considerably lighter (26.5 lb).The floor panels are very light and fit in any lift. No component is more than 94 1/2" long and therefore, fits in most lifts.
However, it is important to mention that in the case of the XL range, some components may be a little heavier.
Quality of the materials
MezzaninesOnline products are manufactured with the most suitable materials for the proposed technical solutions, combining wood, steel and top quality aluminium.
The steels used for beams, columns and other components are fit for structural uses with a high yield strength (S235, S275 or S3555, as required). The pieces are manufactured using maximum precision laser cutting, folding and pressing processes. Next a powder coating is applied and they are baked in the oven, offering maximum adhesion and an outstanding finish.
Structure hardware grade 8.8
Anodized aluminum apt for outdoor use
The wood panels used for the mezzanine flooring can be made of European radiata pine plywood or high density structural chipboard. All the boards are tongue and groove on all four sides to prevent faults and unevenness at the joints of the modules.
Other wooden components, such as the steps and parts of the handrails, are made from top quality beech.

It consists of 50 domed blanking plugs made of plastic to plug unused holes in the beams of the mezzanine. They snap into the holes easily providing a snug fit. Domed blanking plugs are available in black or white.
Alternating tread stairs S have alternating tread steps, with adjustable height, to provide access between the two floors (the same max height as T8 mezzanine). They can be installed on any of the four sides, in parallel to the structure with a S landing or perpendicular to the mezzanine, as well as inside the mezzanine floor.
It has been designed to optimize reduced spaces and to take advantage of the available surface. The industrial Alternating Tread Stairs help to create an open-plan space in an efficient and safe manner.
Based on the American model, Lapeyre, it prioritises the verticality using shallow treads and eases going up and downstairs with packages.
