Composite floor decking provides a structurally strong and efficient flooring solution suitable for a diverse range of building types. It is most commonly used in commercial multi-storey construction where structural strength, speed and cost are key requirements for the builds.
A composite metal floor consists of a concrete slab cast onto a standard metal deck (shallow) or specialist metal deck (deep). Simply put, concrete is good for compression and steel is good for tension. The combined (or composite) strength reduces the overall weight bearing on the supporting structure including the foundations, which results in a lightweight building with long clear spans.
Here at Composite Profiles, we are experts in composite floor profiles – the clue is in our name! We offer Standard Decks to span 2.5 to 4.5 meters unpropped and Specialist Long-Spanning Deep Decks that span up to 6m unpropped and 9m propped.
