Suspended Garage Slab
Advantages of Composite System
Shoring is NOT required.
Slab is designed to support loads during construction. This is a real advantage for those pouring the concrete as it provides a solid working surface. Plus the cost savings on shoring material and labor.
Only 6”-8” concrete topping required.
Using a composite steel and concrete design the floor slab can be thinner than conventional residential suspended slab systems. This results in a cost savings in concrete of 25-50%.
More head room.
Composite steel members do not have to be as deep allowing for more clear space in the room below.
