Slimdek changes offer safer installation

Posted on by in News

Recent side lap changes to the Corus Slimdek SD225 product mean it now offers contractors a safer installation procedure.

“With its new universal side lap, Slimdek can now be laid progressively away from the stack with the deckers primarily working on areas already decked,” said Adrian Wallwork, Business Development – Structural for Corus Panels and Profiles.

“The old product could only be laid in one direction, but the changes mean the deckers can now work in the safest direction and avoid walking over areas not decked,” added Peter Walker, BCSA Health & Safety Manager.

Another change to the product has seen the new Slimdek SD225’s end bearing reduced to 50mm instead of the previous 75mm.

“This allows the product to be dropped directly into place and consequently an easier installation than was previously available,” said Mr Wallwork.
