In the 1990s, vendors released deck forms made of foam with embedded light-gauge steel joists. Concrete floors created with these forms tend to be more expensive than the composite steel joist floors, however, the forms are easy to cut and modify in the field. Finishing ceilings with this system is
Construction: Composite floor system: training video from the Corus BCSA training pack. "Composite floor slabs generally comprise profiled steel floor deck with in-situ concrete cast over the deck. The deck acts as permanent shuttering and spans in a direction transverse to the secondary beams. Primary
Hody profiled steel sheets have a modified trapezium shaped profile of 60 mm in height and intended for constructing, so-called, 'low' composite steel decking. The finished concrete floor is between 110 mm 290 mm high and Hody trapezium sheets can be used on free spans of up to 8 metres over the bearing
