1.5” composite floor deck panels are primarily used for pouring concrete slabs. Composite floor decks have embossments that grip the concrete slab and they are typically reinforced with rebar or wire mesh which creates a strong bond with the concrete floor. Composite steel deck is a permanent concrete form and provides positive reinforcement while it eliminates the time and cost of wood forming.
