Specifications

FD300 is a cold rolled formed section manufactured from high-tensile (G550) steel. It is available in 0.75, 0.90 or 1.00 mm Base Metal Thickness (BMT). The galvanized coating thickness is a Z350 (350g/m²) in full conformance with AS1397.

In special circumstances FD300 may be obtained in:

- other BMT (Different gauges)
- pre-painted colorbond finishes to the underside
- non-standard zinc coating mass
- GALFAN material for extreme or highly corrosive environments

Fire Rating

It has been tested and shown that the inter-locking ribs of the Formdeck300 when fully embedded in a concrete slab, will retain a majority of its strength through its ribs in exposed fire conditions for up to two hours. Further to this the rib strength can be used to reduce the quantity of bottom (FER) Fire Emergency Reinforcement mesh in slabs.

Anti-Glare

Formdeck Australia, Formdeck Industries, FD300, Formdeck FD300, Composite Structural Steel Formwork SystemFormdeck300 comes available with a grey anti-glare coating. This coating is a water-based material that is applied on line during the production stage and dries within minutes.

The anti-glare coating is applied to the pans only of the FD300, this ensures that the chemical bond between the deck and the concrete is fully effective, and hence does not compromise the composite slab performance.

The non reflective coating reduces light reflection by more than 80% improving safety and on site working conditions.
