At Avanta, our innovative edge protection system has been designed to provide a choice of secure, durable and high performing options for your mezzanine floors.
Edge protection is obviously a very important part of any mezzanine floor from a safety aspect. Here our edge protection system excels by offering an incredibly stable, robust and secure solution.
Our mezzanine floor edge protection is available in a wide range of styles and finishes to suit the intended purpose of your mezzanine flooring installation.
The style of the edging protection that is chosen can be a feature that makes a real statement in any environment. This is particularly relevant if the mezzanine floor is intended for use by the public, such as in a retail or office mezzanine. Our system enables you to choose a style of edging protection that fits seamlessly into the design of any area.
Our unique system offers a solution that is both incredibly stable, yet tidy and unobtrusive as both the handrail and toe plate can be integrated into the vertical posts. Our oval profile toe plates are 100mm in height and fit through the centre of the posts, providing an edge that is highly robust and secure with no unsightly bolts or potentially dangerous sharp edges exposed. In a similar fashion, our 1120mm high tubular hand and knee rails run through the centre of the posts giving a solution that is incredibly strong and stable with a clean, bolt-free finish.
As an alternative to horizontal knee rails, options available to be installed as part of our edge protection system include glass or acrylic panels, closely fitted vertical posts or our popular guard netting. Guard netting can be installed easily and makes a great choice for storage mezzanines as it stops objects from being accidentally moved over the edge of the mezzanine, preventing damage to goods and protecting people on the floor below.
