The main difference between an equipment platform and a mezzanine is whether the structure is considered a part of the building or not. The International Building Code defines a mezzanine in section 505.2 as a portion of the story below. An equipment platform is not considered a portion of the floor below.
The dead load, usually 10-15psf (pounds per square foot), consists of all building material (framing, decking, wood, etc.) used in construction of the platform. The live load consists of the load produced by the use and occupancy of the platform, typically 125psf platforms.
Guardrail is a 42″ high safety barrier with kickplate, installed at the edge of raised surfaces. Handrail is a graspable, horizontal or sloping rail, intended for guidance or support. Handrail is typically found on stairways and stair landings in combination with guardrail. These terms are often, mistakenly, used interchangeably.
A stringer (or girder) is a primary beam that supports one or more joists. Joist are secondary members used to infill between stringers.
