Tata Steel Asymmetric Slimflor® Beams now more accessible
Tata Steel has relaunched its responsibly sourced Asymmetric Slimflor® Beams (ASBs) making them more accessible than ever before, with a shorter production time and improved availability.
Responding to customer feedback, the ASBs are to be produced to order, enabling accurate programming for construction projects.
Manufactured in the UK to the exacting standards required for CE marked products, and recently certified to BES 6001, ASBs are now available on a project basis from rolling campaigns for smaller minimum order quantities per serial size (>120 tonnes).
The combined shorter lead-time, typically 6-8 weeks, along with rollings that cater for smaller quantities, provides customers with greater flexibility for assured project planning.
An integral part of the Advance® sections range, ASBs have been specifically designed for use with ComFlor® 225 deep decking to create the Slimdek® system, an engineered solution that offers a service-integrated, minimal depth, cost-effective shallow floor construction ideal for car parks, residential developments, hospitals and commercial buildings where minimising floor depth, and achieving onerous acoustic and vibration criteria are key considerations.
Tata Steel Product Marketer, Construction Structures, Mike Hoare said: “We are keen to demonstrate the flexibility that ASBs can offer to construction programmes, with assured availability and shorter lead times.”
“ASBs are an essential part of a cost-effective shallow floor solution. The composite action, which is assisted by the embossed surface on the upper flange of the ASB, significantly increases the structural strength of the floor.”
