About Metal Deck

From multi-storey high-rise ‘mega builds’ to small and exclusive developments of contemporary style homes, such as Kingsmans Point; Metal Deck works in partnership with main contractors, steel contractors and direct clients to offer an expert, efficient and value-engineered metal decking supply and install solution.

Metal floor decking is a versatile modern method of formwork that suits the increasing requirement for buildings to be environmentally sound in both construction as well as operation.  On average, over 75% of ‘new’ steel is manufactured from recycled steel and some steel manufacturers are investing in green steel.

Due to the long span capabilities of metal floor deck, which on some profiles can be up to 6 metres, it is a construction material that enables residential architects to create large open plan living spaces without the need for ‘propping’.

About Kingspan Multideck

Multideck is the brand name for a range of high performance steel decking offered by Kingspan, one of the largest manufacturers of construction products in the world.

Multideck is offered in five different profiles suiting a wide range of applications. It is also available as Kingspan XP; metal decking with a metallic coating applied during manufacture that provides up to three times greater corrosion protection in outdoor environments. 

Metal floor deck can be combined with concrete and a type of steel mesh or steel fibre reinforcement to create composite concrete beams providing a fast and cost efficient method of construction known to reduce project timescales and, often, costs.

About Multideck MD60

Kingspan Multideck MD60 is the original and most popular trapezoidal metal deck profile on the market.  Its 60mm deep profile allows for an excellent composite union between the metal deck panel and the concrete slab to allow unpropped spans of up to 4.5 metres without compromising load capabilities.
