Versa-Dek® Composite minimizes total floor depth, reduces story height, maximizes ceiling height

Versa-Dek® Composite is a versatile long-span composite floor system that has visual appeal while providing incomparable thin-floor structural advantages. A dovetail deck system, its strength and exposed aesthetic enable it to service a vast array of architectural and structural design possibilities in multi-story construction.

Available in 2-inch and 3.5-inch profiles, Versa-Dek® Composite allows for the thinnest total floor depth possible. It can achieve clear spans of up to 28 feet. Its optional acoustical treatments can attain NRCs of 0.70 without the use of a drop ceiling, making it ideal for mid-rise residential and hotel projects. It seamlessly integrates lighting and MEP elements using the Versa-Wedge® hanger system.

Strong structurally and visually

The telltale shape of Versa-Dek® Composite creates a lineal plank ceiling look and keys to concrete to create a composite bond. It works with light-gage structural steel, panelized wall systems, and any beam or bearing-wall method.

Head-of-wall design blocks fire, smoke, sound transfer

The Versa-Dek® dovetail long-span composite floor system affords the unique ability to stagger the placement of the dovetail sections to create barriers to the transmission of fire, smoke and sound. These elements cannot pass from room to room because they are sealed off at the top of the bearing wall with the inclusion of an end closure. The UL-rated solution eliminates the cost of placing expensive fire sealants in the deck flutes when set upon cold-formed steel (CFS) bearing walls.
