What Kind of Stairs are Right for Your Mezzanine? - S.W. Betz

mezzanine staircaseMezzanines are a great design option if you’re looking to increase storage space, add a modular office, or need a place away from the bustle of the warehouse to keep expensive equipment. An important design choice when planning your mezzanine build, among all of the other design options you have, is the type and style of staircase. This aspect of your mezzanine will be used every day, all day, so it’s important to take time and pick the one that fills all of your needs.

Cogan Staircase Options  

Cogan, an industry leader in mezzanines and their components, offers four different types of staircases. The main differences between each model are the number and style of handrails and the angle of the staircase. Two or three handrail models, inner handrails, and the addition of wire mesh are available depending on the amount of protection you need. The space you have available will dictate the angle of your staircase. Cogan offers staircases with either a 31-degree or 38-degree angle.


Landings help cut the run of the staircase to make sure it fits in the space available in your warehouse and gives you a place to enter and exit the different floors of a multi-level mezzanine. Straight, L-shaped, and U-shaped designs are available. In some cases a staircase tower must be used to support landings on staircases with a rise higher than 12-feet.
