1 Exceptional Performance


Conform has exceptional performance because of the fully enclosed re-entrant rib shape that can be seen in the illustration. Steel retains some residual strength in a fire, even up to temperatures above 800°C.

More commonly, contribution from steel is limited to temperatures below 600°C. For a two-hour fire test the maximum rib temperature recorded on Conform decking rib is 533°C, well below the commonly applied limiting temperature of 600°C.

For design purposes the reinforcement contribution of the Conform deck during a fire has been limited to those portions of the rib below that limiting temperature.

2 FER Potential Elimination


The method of applying the benefits of Conform composite decking in a fire design is simple. Under some conditions it will be found that no additional fire emergency reinforcement (FER) will be needed. It will still be necessary to incorporate shrinkage and temperature mesh for crack control.

Conform composite decking is ideal for floor slab construction in residential, commercial and many industrial applications. It is suitable for use in both steel frame and concrete frame construction, including band beam applications. In addition, it has been successfully used in post-tensioned slabs. Whilst generally used in composite construction, Conform decking can be used as an effective cost formwork in conventional slab applications.
