Type C deck provides the 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 Type C decking (9/16”, 15/16”, and 1-1/2”) with lightweight insulating fill for floor or roof applications. This deck is strong, lightweight, and economical for steel floor and steel roof applications in construction. The Type C Deck profiles have standard overlapping sidelap edges.
Type C Deck Applications
The perfect choice for use in steel floor construction as an economical form to support concrete slabs during construction, Type C Decking provides the solutions you need. Additionally, form decking may eliminate the need for expensive temporary shoring, making Type 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, Type C Deck form decking brings strength and versatility to the construction site. Type C decking provides a strong, secure, stay-in-place form for poured concrete applications. Type C deck eliminates the need for temporary wood forming, as well as the costly stripping and clean-up that follows.
Purchase 0.6”, 1.0”, and 1.5” Type C deck for floor systems composed of structural normal weight or lightweight concrete slabs. Also choose Type C decking for roof systems composed of lightweight insulating concretes or insulating concrete used in combination with expanded insulating board.
Installation of Type C Deck
Install Type C deck easily and efficiently because the sides and ends are designed to overlap with a close fit which reduces welding time. Before and during concrete placement, Type C decking provides a safe working surface for workers and tradesmen. Type C deck in 0.6” (9/16”), 1.0”, and 1.5” decking depths is made from high strength, full hard steel. This metal conforms to Steel Deck Institute specifications. Additionally, Type C decking is galvanized with Class G-60. Choose a galvanized finish for Type C deck when used as a structural support for lightweight insulating concrete fill.
Type C Decking versus Composite Deck
Conversely, form deck lacks the mechanical embossments in the webs that composite deck has. Therefore, Type C deck cannot develop composite action. As a result, other means of reinforcement must be used in the concrete when using Type C Decking. Its use is strictly to provide a platform for concrete or fill over open joists, masonry walls, light gauge framing, or structural steel.
