Composition and manufacture
RHS or UC steel columns, with slab baseplates and top-caps, support universal beams, inset with galvanised joists, topped with decking to form a highly-rigid, but slimline, floor profile to maximise headroom. Deck material options suit many different environments and load requirements up to 10Kn/m2. Special design features include portalised connections to obviate stability bracing (or allow connection to existing building frames), conveyor, lift and smoke-vent apertures, high-level loading facilities, service penetrations etc.
Using CAD and structural design software and specialist in-house engineers, RDA guarantees Building Regulations compliance and design warranty with a £3 million professional indemnity insurance. All design loadings are to BS 6399-1:1984 and are compliant to BRE Digests 437 and 477 and BS 5950-5:1998.
