Enduro form deck (form decking) extends concrete life and improves plant safety when compared to steel form deck or concrete slabs. Our fiberglass (FRP/GRP) form deck provides corrosion protection and a permanent form for the underside of slabs. Eliminating the threat of falling particles, Enduro fiberglass form deck protects personnel and equipment located below.
Reinforced with high-tensile strength glass fibers consisting of 48% of its weight, Enduro form deck has the strength and stiffness needed for reliable support of heavy, wet concrete. Strategically placed in bidirectional alignment, the straight and continuous glass fiber reinforcements provide efficient load transfer within the section. The reinforcements are embedded within a vinyl ester resin system that provides enhanced strength retention at high temperatures in addition to outstanding corrosion resistance. Our fiberglass form deck has a Class I flame spread rating of 25 or less per ASTM E84 testing.
For worker safety and finished slab quality, deflection must be minimized during concrete pour and curing stage. For form deck applications, Enduro recommends selection of one of its higher strength, Tuff Span panel products and minimum deflection of L/180.
Total slab depth is considered from bottom of deck to top of slab.
