Steel Deck 75mm

Steel Deck 75mm

Steel deck is used in constructing building roofs. Compared to older materials, it is easier to implement due to its corrugations and curves. Filling the grooves with cast-in-place concrete offers superior execution speed and building safety.

As ordered by the client, the deck roll forming is performed in thicknesses of 0/50-1/25mm and widths of 1000 and 1250 mm.

 

Advantages

  • Easy installation and high quality, quick execution in construction projects;
  • Lighter than beam and block or composite roofs;
  • Reduced foundation dimensions and rebar consumption;
  • Producing a seamless, homogenous roof and less roof vibrations;
  • Simultaneous concrete casting for all roofs and reducing the concrete usage;

Overall, steel deck roofs reduce execution time, material waste, construction costs, and total project costs.

 

Applications

  • Mainly used in building roofs, steel deck is very effective in improving construction speed, safety, and quality when used in high rise buildings;
  • Due to a level, uniform underside, steel deck can be used without false ceilings in places like parking lots.

Differences between steel decks with 65mm and 75mm pitches

Steel decks with a 65 mm pitch are used in roofs bearing less load (e.g. stairways) to reduce the concrete cost and building weight, whereas steel decks with a 75 mm pitch are used in main roofs bearing heavier loads, which consequently imposes greater concrete costs.
