Kingspan Multideck MD50 / MD60 / MD80

Kingspan Multideck MD50, MD60 and MD80 are the most frequently specified steel floor decks in the UK construction market.

They are high quality, specified on a wide range of construction projects and can span up to 5 metres (MD80) unpropped. The profiles are available in a range of gauges from 0.85mm to 1.5mm to suit the load and span requirement.

Kingspan Longspan Multideck MD146 / MD206

Kingspan Multideck MD146 is the most advanced trapezoidal profile on the market and is a direct alternative to pre cast concrete planks delivering unpropped span capabilities of up to 6.44 metres without the need for propping. MD146 should be considered for projects with spanning requirements of over 4 metres.

Kingspan Multideck MD206 is a long spanning steel deck, formerly known as Hoesch Additive Flooring, and is primarily designed for use in the construction of single or multi-storey car parks. The deck system has excellent corrosion protection qualities, helping improve safety, and is colour coated to provide a bespoke soffit finish.

The benefits of including new Kingspan longspan steel deck include safety, rapid installation and, in most instances, a lower build cost due to reductions in concrete volumes providing a lower weight on the main steel frame and foundations.

Corrosion Protection/Surface Finishes

Kingspan Multideck products are manufactured in galvanised steel in accordance with BS EN 10326 and BS EN 10143 specifications for continuously hot dip zinc / metal coated structural steel strip. This results in a minimum total coating mass of 275g/m2.

All Multideck profiles are available coated in a protective outer paint layer. This added paint layer not only creates the opportunity to introduce colour to the soffit of the deck, but also protects the exposed floor deck from corrosion; prolonging lifespan and enhancing aesthetic appearance.

Multideck products can be manufactured using Magnelis ™ Coating. This is branded as Kingspan XP steel coating and is specified for the most demanding or aggressive C4 and C5 environments and provide up to ten times more protection than standard galvanising.

The Magnelis ™ XP Coating is a unique metallic steel coating that is used in a range of applications and offers long-term surface protection and highly effective corrosion resistance. The unique composition contains 3.5% aluminium and 3% magnesium. The Magnesium content ensures a stable and durable protective layer.
