On their face, bridges and multistory construction projects appear about as dissimilar as can be. Upon closer—and much deeper—examination, however, they’re not so different.
Looking past their obviously distinct appearances and functions, bridges and multistory projects often have similar structural and design demands. They require different steel-and-concrete systems to meet those needs, but the systems themselves share basic traits that allow them to achieve the goals of their respective applications.
Bridge-Dek® and Rhino-Dek® are used in new bridge construction or rehabilitation while Deep-Dek® Composite is often the system of choice for thin-slab multistory construction. They all have hallmark benefits that include ease and speed of construction, safety, and durability and longevity.
