Ecospan provides innovative, results-driven building solutions that surpass industry standards for safety, sound and fire ratings, design flexibility and green building. Ecospan offers many clear advantages over conventional construction techniques including:
Vulcraft Steel Joists
High strength-to-weight ratio allows for greater spans and spacing with lighter members than traditional joists. Ranging from 10” to 40” deep and a maximum length of 60’, Ecospan joists are typically spaced at 4’ to 6’ on center, allowing HVAC and electrical design and installation flexibility.
Vulcraft/Verco Steel Decking
Multi-span sheets of steel decking reduce weight and improve jobsite safety.
Shearflex HD Fastener
With an average installation time of 5 to 10 seconds per screw, these patented self-drilling, self-tapping connectors are easy and inexpensive to use. Workers install the 2.5” or 3” long, Shearflex HD fasteners in a uniform pattern using a Vulcraft-provided Shearset Tool.
Provided by the General Contractor, the slab reinforcement typically consists of 6x6 welded steel wire or fiber mesh.
Concrete Slab (by others)
Slab thickness is typically 2.5” (3.5” total depth) normal weight concrete having a minimum 28 day ultimate compressive strength of 3,000 psi.Specifications: Section 05 1700 Composite Floor System » Ecospan Composite Floor System Installation Guide »
