Plastbau E-Deck is a stay-in-place insulating concrete forming system for joisted concrete floors. The system is pre-engineered to address major concern of cast in-situ concrete construction, that of formwork rationalization and conscious strive for project constructability. Invented by Piero Cretti, the system consists of a core of Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) through which a continuous pair of z-metal strips is embedded to confer self-supporting ability when the eDeck is finally laid in place for concreting. The EPS core is molded according to a patented Plastbau technology that has been successfully practiced over the past decades amid many other application possibilities. The reinforced concrete joist system embraced in and around the EPS form provides all the structural capacity of the Plastbau eDeck. Plastbau production process permits consistently high quality of eDeck modules to be achieved with distinct material, time, cost, and lightweight benefits. The Plastbau eDeck system can be installed without difficulty under any weather condition, thus ensuring reliable schedule that meet project requirements or special situations. Construction built with Plastbau eDeck ensures the rigidity of monolithic cast-in-situ concrete and the durability of EPS-encapsulated concrete. These are factors that increasingly make Plastbau eDeck a system of first choice in severe weather and seismic conditions. To experts in the field of structural and building material performance, Plastbau eDeck is a revolutionary system that maximizes the life cycle of build.                                                                                                                                                                                                            View PDF pdf
