ComFlor® 225

ComFlor® 225

Developed specifically for Tata Steel Slimdek® system, ComFlor® 225 offers up to 6.5 metres unpropped span.

Tata Steel Slimdek® engineered flooring solution is a unique structural floor system which uses Asymmetric Slimdek Beams, where the bottom flange is wider than the top flange. The ComFlor® 225 steel deck bears on the lower flange of the beam which results in a minimal overall floor depth. The concrete that surrounds the beam provides composite action without the need for shear studs and fire protection to the beam. The Slimdek® system is fast, eliminates temporary props, is structurally optimized and saves on cladding costs.

The system also reduces building height or enables extra floors to be built.

  • ComFlor® 225 deck is a state of the art cold formed profile design offering fully optimized composite and load carrying characteristics.
  • The re-entrant section to the top flange of the profile enhances composite action and offers easy services attachment.
  • The deck is designed to offer flexible service integration (as described in Steel Construction Institute publication 'Service Integration in Slimdek®').
  • Up to 2 hours fire rating with unprotected soffit.

Volume & weight table notes

  1. Deck and beam deflection (i.e. ponding is not allowed for in the table).
  2. Deck and mesh weight is not included in the weight of concrete figures.
  3. Density of concrete is taken as:
    •  Normal weight (wet) 2400 kg/m3
    •  Normal weight (dry) 2350 kg/m3
    •  Lightweight (wet) 1900 kg/m3
    •  Lightweight (dry) 1800 kg/m3
