FormDeck - Insulated Concrete Suspended Slabs
FormDeck is a fast-track suspended concrete slab system which forms a ribbed concrete structure that provides a reduction in concrete and weight while maintaining strength and superior insulation levels. FormDeck™ is a lightweight concrete formwork used to create a concrete insulated suspended slab or deck. The insulating EPS formwork profile forms structural concrete T beams integrated with a thinner, flat concrete suspended slab. This reduces the weight significantly while maintaining the strength of the concrete suspended slab or deck. The EPS formwork remains mechanically locked to the underside of the concrete slab when erected and steel C Channels integrated into the permanent EPS formwork provide additional support for the concrete slab during the pouring process. Additionally, plaster board can be attached to the steel C channels, directly to the underside of the FormDeck™ formwork. The FormDeck™ formwork also contains two service chases to place utilities such as electrical conduit and plumbing. The FormDeck™ suspended slab system is delivered in customised lengths for each project.
