The White Book
Floor Deck Design Guide and Tables
To aid the selection of the relevant deck profile needed for our contract, SMD have developed ‘The White Book’ as a quick reference tool to be used by architects, engineers and specifiers when looking for a quick concept design for a composite slab.
A unique process has been developed to allow the reader to gain relevant information in a three-step process using ‘never seen before’ graphs as a visual aid to help understand what can be achieved in different scenarios.
The White Book is available as an interactive PDF download or as an A5, pocket sized, paper book containing:
- Step-by-step guidance
- Maximum span limits for all SMD floor deck profiles
- 1.0, 1.5 and 2.0 hour fire ratings
- A142, A193, A252, A393, 2xA252 and 2xA393 mesh sizes
- Eurocode 4 Design
