What is Steel Floor Decking?
Steel decking is a profiled sheet of thin galvanised steel used as formwork in the construction of buildings. It is most commonly used in composite floor construction where it is combined with shear studs and reinforced concrete.
During manufacture, steel floor deck is shaped into a shallow or deep profile (known as ‘dovetail’ or ‘re-entrant’ and ‘trapezoidal’) and marked with indents to improve the bond with concrete.
Steel decking is also known as metal decking, composite floor decking, corrugated steel decking and ‘wrinkly tin’.
