Motorway serviced with RoofDek
A new motorway service station on the M5 Southbound in Gloucestershire is being built, after the successful completion of the Northbound service station earlier this year, using over 9,000m² of Tata Steel’s RoofDek structural decking.
Approximately 6,500m² of RoofDek D100 was installed to form the curved roofs of the services two main facility halls.
Both buildings feature green roofs used on top of the RoofDek D100, which was selected for its fast and simple installation and its ability to achieve the required curvature.
The decking configuration having been proved to be structurally suitable with calculations being produced using the free to download RoofDek Analysis software.
On both sides of the motorway the main contractor Buckingham Group also used 3,000m² of Tata Steel’s RoofDek D60 to form the petrol station canopies.
Tata Steel offers the widest range of structural roof decking manufactured in the UK, with decks ranging from 32mm to 210mm deep, in addition to structural liner trays.
