Benefits of Using a Steel Metal Deck Floor
When it comes to investing in steel components, your first concern should always be making sure you’re paying a reasonable price for quality steel decking, both for flooring and roofs. But it’s also nice to know what the benefits of building a steel floor deck are. We’ve discussed a few of the benefits of steel decking below for your benefit.
If you’re thinking about having a steel deck floor installed, you’ll want to know the benefits before spending your hard-earned money. Using metal deck flooring means a reduced time frame due to the fast speed of construction, meaning your customers won’t be kept waiting months for construction to finish.
Due to the reduced foundation costs, having a metal roof and floor deck floor installed is both economical and sensible. That’s the main reason why our steel decking is offered to all our customers at the most affordable prices on the market.
Steel decking for roofs and flooring is used largely in construction due to its low frame weight, giving the overall build more flexibility. The decking also acts as a permanent shuttering system, which is why it’s also such a commonly used insulator when keeping buildings warm.
Examples of Our Steel Decking Products
Here at SMD Stockyards, we stock many fantastic steel products, and just to give you an idea, we’ve detailed some of these below. For instance, customers can purchase the R51+ Floor Deck. It is a traditional re-entrant profile that’s typically used in elevated, multi-storey construction. It is desirable where the structural zone is limited and spots an impressive 1-hour fire rating, achievable with a relatively thin slab depth.
The TR60+ boasts high-span capabilities and increased steel efficiency. Installation of this steel decking option is super-fast, thanks to the 1.0m cover width. The TR60+ sports a 1-hour fire rating achieved with a 130mm slab. Alternatively, you have the TR80+, which sports a deep trapezoidal profile with excellent un-propped span capabilities. The reduced concrete volume requirements are also another desirable trait of the TR80+.
