- ComFlor 210 uses 1.25mm high tensile steel.
- The deck is designed as single spans in construction to span 5.20m unpropped and over 8.50m propped with corresponding reduction in steelwork.
- The broad top surface of the ComFlor 210 affords a comfortable working platform.
Reduced concrete use
- 270mm deep slab uses the equivalent of a 115mm solid concrete slab.
- Even for the longest spans (circa 8.50m) a 350mm deep slab uses equivalent concrete as a 195mm solid slab.
- Single bar reinforcement in each trough, combined with anti-crack mesh near the top of the concrete slab gives the composite slab superb structural strength and fire properties.
Shallow floor depth
- The deck can be contained within the beam depth, which produces a “slim floor”. This leads to savings in cladding costs and either helps to reduce the overall building height or enables an extra floor to be added for buildings of 10 storeys plus.
- The shape of the deep deck permits services to be installed between the deck ribs, effectively within the slab depth. This leads to further reductions in the floor zone.
Inherent fire resistance
- A fire resistance of 60 minutes can be achieved without fire protection to the steelwork or deck when on encastre beam is used.
Reduced transport and handling costs:
- The nestable profile shape reduces transport and handling costs.
