NS BlueScope Lysaght has launched LYSAGHT® BONDEK® II since 2017 – the new generation of decking, one of the state-of-the-art solutions from Australian expert - saving cost up to 15% and accelerating the construction progress by approx. 20%

Sustainable construction, by nature, pursues the ultimate goal of mitigating environmental footprint by utilizing materials to construct more at less, employing construction efficiency, controlling work-related accidents at the lowest level, etc., which makes it an inevitable industry trend. Taking advantage of such latest technology as decking solution is a part and parcel of this sustainability journey.

Composite steel and concrete floor decking is a mixed structure between concrete and steel decking, in which steel decking is engineered in waveform with specialized shapes to minimize its thickness and weight. This kind of floor does not require formwork, making it thin and light thanks to the use of cast-in-place concrete, which leads to positive impacts on building frame and foundation. Composite steel and concrete floor decking is currently an industry prevailing trend, widely applied for industrial, multi-floor, commercial, civil and public buildings worldwide… with proven efficiency.

“Backed by the smart combination between optimized physical attributes of concrete and steel, composite steel and concrete structure emerges as a popular choice in worldwide buildings, especially for multi-storey structure. Apart from being prominent compared to traditional reinforced concrete structures in terms of high load capacity, long spanning, compact and aesthetic components, the prefabricated steel of composite steel and concrete structure allows an easy of construction with less time, labor cost and construction waste. This is one of the most critical criteria in choosing sustainable structure and construction solutions, helping to promote the use of renewable materials and reducing environment footprint in the future,” further commented Dr. Pham Cao Hung, Senior Lecturer at The University of Sydney (Australia).
