As soon as the decking is laid fixings shall be applied through each trough to the supporting structure.

Where the supporting structure is a hot-rolled steel frame decking is typically fastened using powderactuated/gas-fired nails or selfdrilling screws. Each decking sheet shall be lapped to each adjacent sheet using the proprietary lapping detail and fixed at 1.0m centres. Where shear studs are used and the decking multi-spanning, two fixings shall be installed per sheet at end supports and one fixing per sheet at intermediate supports. Fixings for side bearings should be provided at 600mm centres.
