C decking provides the metal platform that supports concrete slabs for constructing floor systems. Use stay-in-place form deck to provide an economical support for structural concrete in floor construction. Also, use form deck with lightweight insulating fill for floor or roof applications. Keystar offers these C decking options in 0.6” form deck, 1.0” form deck, and 1.5” form deck. Use C Form deck for strong, lightweight, and economical steel floor and steel roof applications in construction. The 0.6”, 1.0”, and 1.5” C Deck profiles have standard overlapping edges.
C Decking Applications
The perfect choice for use in steel floor construction as an economical form to support concrete slabs during construction, C Decking provides the solutions you need. Additionally, form decking may eliminate the need for expensive temporary shoring, making C-deck some of the most economical, easy to install metal floor systems available for construction.
Routinely specified for schools, warehouses, and low- and high-rise office buildings, C Deck form decking brings strength and versatility to the construction site. C form deck provides a strong, secure, stay-in-place form for poured concrete applications. Install this decking easy and fast since the need for temporary wood forming is eliminated. Also, form deck eliminates the costly stripping and clean-up that follows.
Purchase form deck for floor systems composed of structural normal weight or lightweight concrete slabs. Also choose C decking for roof systems composed of lightweight insulating concretes or insulating concrete used in combination with expanded insulating board.
Installation of C Form Deck
Install C decking with ease because sides and ends are designed to overlap with a close fit which reduces welding time. Before and during concrete placement, C form deck provides a safe working surface for workers and tradesmen. This deck type in 0.6” (9/16”), 1.0”, and 1.5” decking depths is made from high strength, full hard steel. The metal conforms to Steel Deck Institute specifications. Choose a galvanized finish for C form deck when used as a structural support for lightweight insulating concrete fill.
C Decking versus Composite Deck
Conversely, form deck lacks the mechanical embossments in the webs that composite deck has. Therefore, C form deck cannot develop composite action. As a result, other means of reinforcement must be used in the concrete when using C Decking. This deck strictly provides a platform for concrete or fill over open joists, masonry walls, light gauge framing, or structural steel.
