We offer a removable steel deck forming system supported on special horizontal steel joists for post tensioned or conventionally reinforced concrete slabs. This steel deck forming system is perfect for parking decks and other structures. No vertical posts are required and the system is reusable for dozens of pours.
The bridge form-type decking is fitted with end bearing “shoes” that raise the decking and allow it to rest on and engage the permanent building beams. No positive connection of the decking to the beams is needed.
The shoring joists, which support the open ends of the decking, have sliding shear plates on each end that are inserted into holes in the building girders.
One bolt holds each end in place until the pour is complete.
For speed and safety, the entire system can be removed, from above, by lowering it with optional lifting hooks through the slab, or the shoring joists and decking can be lowered from below with fork lifts.
There are no posts or vertical shores supporting the formwork, which usually get in the way. The area below the forms is free and clear of any obstructions.
The forming system can accommodate any bay size and slab thickness.
The decking and shoring members are for lease or for sale.
