Why Is the Steel Floor Decking Becoming Increasingly Popular?

Within the last few decades, due to the development of high-rise buildings, the steel-concrete composite floor system(composite steel floor decking) has been increasingly popular.Compared to the traditional reinforced concrete flooring system, there are many benefits that composite steel flooring decking system would bring.

Greater Durability of Composite Steel Floor Decking System

It’s available to make different steel decking profiles for inhibitting any longitudinal slip between the steel and concrete in the slab itself, and any transverse movement between the slab and the supporting beams.


Easy and Safe Construction of Steel Floor Decking

We can easily crane these bundles into specific work areas, and the individual sheets quickly laid by hand. Cable trays and pipes can be hung from the underside of the steel decking by attaching to special ‘dovetail’ recesses. During construction, the decking provides other benefits, like acting as a working platform for storage of materials.


Quick Installation of Steel Floor Decking


steel floor decking installation composite slabs are an excellent choice when speed of construction is important. Contractors lift bndles of decking into place on the structure, for distribution by hand. No need to use a large numbers of crane lifts, when compared with the precast alternative. The ability to stack the pieces of decking into bundles also reduces transport time and costs. When appropriately orientated and fixed to the steel beams it can restrain them against lateral torsional buckling.


Cost Reduction of Composite Steel Floor Decking System

Consequently, this means a lighter, smaller structure and less waste.  Besides, this composite steel floor decking system has also dramatically reduced the labour costs, since props are no need.


More Flexible Design of Steel Floor Decking


With the diferent designs for metal floor deck roll forming machines, we can manufacture varied steel floor decking that gives more strength, flexibility and efficiency, based on many practical cases and a multitude of solutions.


IIn addition to these advantages, we have some no less important benefits!For example, easier construction, the non-contamination of other materials, easier stockpiling and cleaning, safe formwork and platform on which to work, the bracing of the structure and the ease with which to install the facilities, among others.
