COMPOSITE
METAL DECK

Durable, high performance composite steel deck floor systems have been the system of choice of design professionals and builders for decades. These systems have been thoroughly tested and evaluated as reflected in the standards established and practiced worldwide. Advances in composite deck research provide systems that combine long span capabilities, low profiles, attractive appearance, sound absorption and numerous other serviceability and sustainability demands.

Pair composite metal deck with DIVERSAKORE, and gain the benefits of:

  • Long spans – capable of spans exceeding 30 feet (10.7m)
  • Shallow depths – when designers specify a shallow, structural steel-based slab design, with wide-open spaces free of dropped filler beams
  • Excellent fire rating – 2-hour fire assembly rating without spray fireproofing
  • Faster, safer construction – easier, more efficient floor-to-floor assembly and framing, with higher quality design execution
  • Lighter structures – less concrete means less weight (up to 33% reduction)
  • Greater time & money savings – fewer materials equals faster, more affordable buildings

COMPOSITE METAL DECK FEATURES & BENEFITS

STRUCTURAL STRENGTH WITH LESS WEIGHT
Steel deck designs maximize the efficiency of steel’s properties, resulting in high strength-to-weight ratios. Because fluted decks displace concrete, a composite steel deck floor system uses less concrete compared to conventional flat plate slabs, meaning:

  • smaller primary structures and foundations
  • less weight and fewer materials needed
  • positive impact on lateral bracing systems for controlling seismic activity
  • lower delivery, erection, and structural framing costs


LIMITED TO NO SHORING

Simplified shoring, if required, can further accelerate the progress of construction. Depending on the structural properties of the deck section and the level of superimposed loading due to the wet concrete topping, and the workers applying it, unshored lengths of 20+ feet are obtainable. Where long-span, in-service composite floors are desired, usually a single shoring row (a header beam supported by height adjustable posts), is provided at the mid-span of the deck.

LOW-PROFILE ASSEMBLIES
Reducing floor heights is critical when jurisdictions impose restrictions on structures to accommodate the limits of their fire-fighting equipment or to maintain a community’s visual appeal. Composite floor decks achieve desired fire resistance ratings with shallower concrete depths. All of this means:

  • reduced floor-to-floor heights
  • curtain wall and service riser reductions
  • lower costs


In part, these benefits are why low-profile framing systems like Diversakore are capturing increasing portions of the mid-rise residential market.

ALL WEATHER CONSTRUCTION
Steel deck can be erected in most weather conditions, eliminating costly delays that can occur with other types of floor and roof systems.

VERSATILITY
Composite steel decks complying with Steel Deck Institute (SDI) specifications are available from member companies in various profiles, depths, flute spacing and cover widths (with or without stiffening elements and/or acoustical, cellular or non-cellular material).

Coupled with ASTM pre-qualified steel, designers can fine-tune their analysis to provide the optimum steel thickness for a given loading condition. This versatility makes steel deck suitable for a wide range of projects and structural designs.
