Ecospan is safe and easy
We know that safety on the jobsite is paramount. With Ecospan, you can improve safety and reduce your construction liability since this system utilizes longer sheets of light-gauge decking that are easy and inexpensive to install. Using the Shearflex Fastener and Shearset Tool, you can attach the deck to joists in just a single step.
With fire safety and regulations always a concern when starting new projects, Ecospan has gone above and beyond to make sure you’re safe and up to code. Ecospan has a UL List Fire Rating of G-561 for 1, 2 and 3 hours with gypsum board ceilings; a ULG-229 listing that provides for the use of acoustical materials for suspended ceiling applications; and a ULG-710 listing that allows for “spray-on” applications for commercial and medical projects.
The Ecospan Composite Floor System by Nucor/Vulcraft is an innovative, effective and economical method of providing all-steel, open web structural components for elevated floor construction while incorporating the benefits of lighter weight composite design. Ecospan requires only a nominal 3” thick, 3,000 psi concrete slab, with no shoring or stripping of framework needed. The open web configuration and 48” on center joist spacing allows for HVAC and electrical design flexibility. And erectors will love Ecospan because it utilizes standard steel joist and deck components with which they’re already familiar. Plus, it’s mechanically fastened, so it’s easy for less experienced workers to quickly and effectively install. These are just a few examples of how the Ecospan Composite Floor System is a safe and easy choice for your next project. For more specific information, please contact one of our Sales Representatives.
