FormDeck - Insulated Concrete Suspended Slabs
Builder, Home Construction Materials, New Homes
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.
- FormDeck™ significantly reduces the concrete usage for the suspended slab and thus weight due to the innovative T-beam design.
- Insulating EPS formwork provides better acoustic and thermal performance.
- Steel C purlins support the EPS formwork during the pour of the concrete slab and also provide furring strips to fix the ceiling.
- The lightweight formwork reduces cranage and enables faster cycle times.
- The integration of the FormDeck™ and FormPro® formwork systems creates a monolithic concrete super-structure with superior structural performance.
- Service channels are provided in each panel for easy installation of services.
