Composite floor deck

ComFlor® 210

The original deep composite profile introduced for the first Slimflor systems with a very effective cross stiffener technology.

Building Systems UK's ComFlor® 210 has very effective cross stiffener technology and the deep profile shape provides a very efficient metal deck and composite slab, with a low usage of concrete. Slimflor systems have wider lower flange steel beams that allow the deck to land on the bottom flange.

  • Efficient - low use of steel and concrete
  • Versatile – top or bottom flange application
  • Nestable profile gives low transport and handling costs

EN-Construction-Product-ComFlor 210 | Benefits

Benefits
  • Efficient: Cross stiffener technology and deep profile shape provides a very efficient metal deck and composite slab giving low usage of steel and concrete.
  • Versatile: Especially suited to bear on the extended lower flange of a steel beam, can also be used on the top flange.
  • Nestable: The simple trapezoidal shape neatly nests one profile into another, allowing more square metres per bundle.
  • Efficient for export: Maximises the square meterage in each container.

Design notes:

Deck material
Tata Steel Galvatite®, hot dip zinc coated steel to BS EN 10346 S280GD+Z275, with guaranteed minimum proof strength of 280N/mm2 and zinc coating of total mass 275g/m2 (including both sides). This is sufficient for internal floors in a non-aggressive environment, which satisfies the requirement in clause 4.2 BS EN 1994-1-1 - the exposed surfaces of the steel decking shall be adequately protected to resist the particular atmospheric conditions. A zinc coating, if specified, should conform to the requirements of BS EN 10346. The specification may be varied, depending on service conditions.

Anti-crack mesh
As a minimum requirement where the control of crack width is of no interest, BS EN 1994-1-1, 9.8.1(2) recommends that, where continuous slabs are designed as simply-supported in accordance with BS EN 1994-1-1, 9.4.2(5), the cross-sectional area of the anti-crack reinforcement above the ribs should be not less than 0.2% of the cross-sectional area of the concrete above the ribs for un-propped construction, and 0.4% of this cross-sectional area for propped construction. The mesh specified in the quick reference Eurocode tables, complies with this clause.

Where forklift truck (or other similar concentrated loading) is expected, 0.5% minimum percentage reinforcement should be used over the supports and the previous stated percentages elsewhere to control cracking. For further information refer to SCI AD150.
