Mezzanine Handrails for Industrial, Commercial & Retail Settings


For many of our customers, mezzanine handrails are a functional consideration – a must-have, to comply with the correct regulations and ensure the safety of warehouse staff loading inventory on or off their new floor.

But for customers outfitting a mezzanine floor in commercial premises like an office block, showroom or high-street fashion store, aesthetics are just as important as functionality.

For customer-facing locations, mezzanine edge protection may need to match your pre-existing decor, maintaining the atmosphere critical to your space’s appeal and ensuring that your new mezzanine feels like a planned addition to your store.

Looking at mezzanine floor blueprints

Here at USS, we cater to both industrial and commercial customers. We machine and manufacture our own industrial safety railings and hand rail posts in a range of colours and coatings. We also can produce decorative balustrades to match any retail design scheme.

Irrespective of whether you’re commissioning us to install or fit out your mezzanine floor or bring a pre-existing space up to code with attractive and functional edge protection, we’re more than capable of accommodating your needs and providing a solution that’s right for your business.

We also offer a complete installation and inspection service to ensure full compliance with industry standards – and ensure you’re keeping up with the requirements of relevant HSE legislation like the Working At Height Regulations (2005).

A Safe Solution For Industrial Spaces

Assuming that you’re responsible for commissioning a mezzanine floor in a warehouse, factory or distribution centre, your principal concerns are probably safety and durability. Our industrial handrails provide continuous edge protection that complies with the most stringent industry standards.

But you’re not only buying edge protection to comply with legislation – you’re buying it because you want to ensure that your mezzanine floor is safe for both your staff and your stored inventory; furthermore, capable of standing the test of time. On that front, we deliver by providing strong and durable handrails manufactured using high-grade steel.

We can provide a finish to handrails and balustrades in various colours to make them stand out. We can also powder coat your edge protection to withstand the unavoidable bumps, scrapes and knocks that are unavoidable in busy industrial environments.

When you commission us to provide mezzanine handrails, you’re guaranteed high-quality edge protection customised to your space and designed to keep delivering for years to come. We also offer a full range of bespoke pallet gates and kick plates to ensure that your mezzanine floor is fully functional and your inventory is secure – and capable of supporting your day-to-day operations.

Safety handrails in warehouse

We’re not limited to doing small floors either: Over the past 30 years, we’ve designed, built and installed edge protection on a wide variety of mezzanine projects, from single-story mezzanines in busy warehouses to more extensive, multi-tier mezzanine floors in national distribution centres.

In a recent project for Readie Construction Ltd, we installed a three-tier mezzanine floor for a new logistics and distribution facility. The floor included concertina pallet gates, bespoke (full height) mesh handrails, and a goods lift to move inventory around the facility quickly.

Retail-Friendly Balustrades

Combining safety with attractive design, retail or commercial mezzanine balustrades are a world apart from their industrial cousins. In many instances, retail settings require steel and glass balustrades that provide a more polished finish – or an entirely bespoke handrail that acts as an eye-catching feature instead of blending into the background.

Ultimately, it’s about understanding the needs of your space and pre-existing design scheme, which is where our talented designers come in. As one of the only specialist mezzanine floor fabricators in the UK with a dedicated technical department, we’re uniquely positioned to help you model truly bespoke handrails, balustrades or edge protection.

Retail mezzanine stairs and handrail

When you employ us to design handrails for a retail or commercial setting, you can expect to receive a polished product that’s fully functional, robust, and optimised for your space.

More than that, you can expect something that elevates the look and feel of your retail mezzanine – casting it as an integral part of the wider shop environment or ensuring that it draws the eye of any customer visiting your store.

In recent years, we’ve designed and built unique ‘feature’ fittings for high-street retail stores like JD Sports and ultra-chic hospitality destinations like Sea Containers in London.

In fact, we designed and fabricated a unique staircase for Sea Containers, and they were so pleased with the initial designs that they asked us to quote for, design and build a mezzanine floor that matched the “1920’s cruise liner meets London brutalism” styling of their communal lounge/gallery space
