Decking Sheets

Composite metal deck is a cost-effective flooring systemused in may multi story buildings. Floors constructed ofcomposite metal deck ate typically designed such thatthe corrugated of composite metal deck are typicallydesigned such that the corrugated metal deck willsupport the weight of fresh concrete and someconstruction loads without requiring shoring.Once the concrete gains strength, the concrete andmetal deck act together as a composite member. Themetal deck acts as tensile reinforcement for the slab inresistance to positive moment stresses induced by deadand live loads.Traditional design practice dictates that minimumreinforcement is required in the transverse direction tocontrol any cracks that may occur due to temperatureand shrinkage movements. This minimum requirementfor reinforcing has traditionally been addressed via theuse of light-gauge welded wire mesh.
