Increased spans and efficiency with new composite flooring system
Corus Panels & Profiles has launched ComFlor 60, the newest addition to its shallow composite floor decking range.
This state-of-the-art system offers a lightweight steel decking for all multi-rise buildings including car parks, combines excellent spanning capabilities and requires less concrete.
“The system is easy to install and provides a cost-effective and attractive floor solution,” said Adrian Bellingham, Business Development Manager at Corus.
“It also offers increased spans, optimum stud positioning, lighter sheets and lower concrete usage.”
ComFlor 60 provides excellent acoustic performance and fire protection, with no requirement for filler blocks. Engineered with optional closed ends, its profile has been specially designed with trough stiffeners and side taps positioned to guarantee centrally placed sheer studs.
With a cover width of just 600mm, ComFlor 60 creates lightweight sheets that are easy to handle and so delivering significant on-site safety benefits.
Adrian Wallwork, Technical Manager at Corus, said: “This new range can accommodate long un-propped spans of up to 4.5m. This reduces structural steel requirements, optimises the design and is more cost effective.”
Extensive testing has been carried to ensure ComFlor 60 complies with British Standards and Eurocodes. The range is also manufactured with closed ends giving excellent fire protection and acoustic performance, which in turn simplifies installation.
Minimal maintenance can also be achieved by using a Colorcoat 25- micron flexible polyester coating to the underside of the decking which also gives an improved appearance.
