Composite Floor Decking

A composite steel deck combines the tensile strength of steel with the compressive strength of concrete to improve design efficiency and reduce the material necessary to cover a given area. Additionally, composite steel decks supported by composite steel joists can span greater distances between supporting elements and have reduced live load deflection in comparison to previous construction methods.[5][6][7]

Over the last decade the region has seen a significant rise in the use of steel decking. It’s no surprise as using steel decking has many advantages.

  1. Speedy construction
  2. Savings in weight
  3. Easy installation compared to alternatives
  4. Less concrete usage
  5. Fire resistant
