Metal form deck is often used in floor construction by serving as a permanent steel base for poured, reinforced concrete slabs. This is why form deck is very practical, easy and fast to install while also being affordable.
Form deck does not have embossment and is not interlocked within the structure, as opposed to composite deck. Instead, it supports the weight of wet concrete that is poured to create the flooring systems.
At CSM Metal Deck, we stock ready-to-ship and custom manufacture form deck for your construction project. If you are going to be working with a metal form deck, it is imperative to understand the different types you can get. In this article, we will review three different metal form decks:
