composite deck fire rating

decking is classified as a Class C, or Class III, building material. As a result, lumber will burn as wood does, even though it contains several other composite materials. fire resistance ratings are determined by Underwriters Laboratories, an independent consumer safety company. An "A" rating indicates a high level of fire resistance, while a C rating refers to an average level of fire resistance. So if a fire occurs, your lumber will burn just like the wood on ...

During the placement of concrete, steel deck resists the vertical loads associated with the weight of the concrete and the construction loads. As the concrete cures a chemical and mechanical, shear bond forms collectively between the surface of the steel deck and the concrete. The mechanical bond is achieved via embossed features on the surface of the steel deck. The strength of a composite diaphragm (deck concrete) depends on the shear bond and the complimentary behavior&nbsp;...
