Composite joists and deck can reduce floor-to-floor height, costs, construction timelines and required steel material
Capable of open spans of up to 60 feet and beyond, composite steel joist and steel deck long-span composite floor systems provide design flexibility while introducing a range of cost and performance enhancements.
This steel building system derives its strength in two ways: The composite joist’s (CJ-Series) shear connection to the overlying concrete slab and the composite deck’s bond with the concrete slab. The shear connection is a result of field-applied shear studs that become embedded in hardened concrete when the composite decking is filled with concrete. The composite deck itself has embossments in the vertical ribs that bond with the concrete slab to develop a composite floor system.
