Metza column casing technical information


Metza column casings are designed specifically for use with interior mezzanine floor systems, primarily to protect the structural support columns from impact damage and fire.

Manufactured using an outer skin of coated steel, lined with a dense, fire resistant fire-tech board, Metza casings can provide up to 2 hours fire protection.

Metza’s profile tolerance can vary by + / – 4mm. The nominal material thickness tolerance for metal skin column casings is + / – 0.1mm.


Normally supplied as a four-sided casing to fully encase the structural columns, Metza incorporates a ‘U’ shaped channel onto which the separate fourth side snaps and locks into place using and integral joint.

To simplify fitting when working close to walls or where access is restricted, the casings can also be specified as two interlocking ‘L’ shaped profiles.

Fire performance

Up to 2 hours fire protection is provided by Metza mezzanine floor casings as a result of the use of the 30mm fire-tech board to encase the structural column inside a lightweight steel skin. The fire barrier is classified as non-combustible to BS 476-4 and Class ‘O’ fire propagation to BS476-6.
