      Min gauge 20/18 MSG for Type WDR2 or WDR3 cellular units used with min 20 MSG fluted units. Allowable loading for the floor shall be calculated based upon published loading tables for the fluted units. Type WDR2 or WDR3 units may also be used without being blended with fluted units when NW concrete is used and the allowable bending stress for the cellular units does not exceed 16,000 psi.

      Spacing of welds attaching units to supports shall be at each side and not to exceed 16 in. OC between sides. For Type WDR2 or WDR3 units, welds not to exceed 12 in. OC. Unless noted otherwise, adjacent units button-punched or welded together 36 in. OC along side joints.

      Alternate Construction — Noncomposite units of the same type listed above may be used provided allowable loading is calculated on the basis of noncomposite design.

    3. Joint Cover — 2 in. wide cloth adhesive tape applied following the contour of the steel floor units.
    4. Trench Header — (Bearing the UL Listing Mark). Constructed of steel and provided with metal edge screeds. When the trench header is located near a support the load carrying capacity of the span may be based on the allowable moment or shear stress of the floor units at the edge of the trench header away from the support or on the allowable composite moment or shear capacity of the slab at the center of the span, whichever governs.

    As an alternate in spans employing min 20/18 MSG cellular floor units and/or min 20 MSG fluted floor units, trench headers (Bearing the UL Listing Mark) without the bottom pan may be used. The allowable superimposed load for spans with a bottomless trench header shall be based on noncomposite design. The bottomless trench header, with a max width of 36 in., consists of two cell closers which conform to the contour of the floor units, placed along the sides of the desired trench header location and welded to the floor units. The side rails, consisting of extruded aluminum screeds secured to galv steel channels (min 18 MSG), are positioned over the cell closers, aligned, and welded or riveted to the cell closers and floor units. A separate U-shaped galv steel channel (min 18 MSG), serving as the power compartment, is welded or riveted to the floor units. Steel cover plates, 1/4 in. thick, shall be secured to the side rails. In bottomless trench headers wider than 18 in., each side joint of the steel floor units shall be welded with a 1 in. long weld near the trench header centerline. For QG-GKX-24 or -30 cellular floor units only, a separate KED-PTS (UL Listed) power transition sleeve is secured to power compartment with one rivet or screw. The use of the bottomless trench header requires additional protection underneath the trench header. Fireproofing thickness shall be increased as shown on the following table:

    The use of the trench header requires additional protection underneath the trench header (See Item 7). The additional protection shall extend a min of 4 in. beyond the sides of the trench header.

    4A. Trench Header — With an intermittent bottom (as an alternate to Item 4) when Type WDR cellular units are used — (Bearing the UL Listing Mark) — The allowable superimposed load for spans with an intermittent bottom trench header shall be based on noncomposite design. The intermittent bottom trench header, with a maximum width of 36 in., consists of horizontal closure plates, (min No. 16 MSG) with 4 threaded studs pre-welded on the top side of each plate near its corners. The plates to be placed over the fluted areas of the floor units and affixed to the floor units by welds at each corner. Concrete is to be vibrated into the voids formed by the plates and the fluted areas of the units beneath the trench header. The upper side rail is extruded aluminum attached to the lower steel side rail clip with an adjusting screw. The lower side rail positioned over the edge of the horizontal closure plates snapped-on the pre-welded threaded studs on top of the plates. The use of the intermittent bottom trench header requires additional protection underneath the trench header. (See Item 7) The additional protection shall extend a min of 4 in. beyond the sides of the intermittent bottom trench header.
    5. Access Openings — As required, with grommets.
    6. Header Duct — (Bearing the UL Listing Mark) 1-1/2 in. deep by 6-7/8 in. wide. Housing constructed of steel.
    6A. Electrical Inserts — Preset and after set electrical inserts Classified as Outlet Boxes and Fittings Classified for Fire Resistance*. Unless specified otherwise for a particular preset electrical insert type, the spacing of the preset electrical inserts shall be not less than 24 in. on center along cellular steel floor units with not more than one preset electrical insert in each 8 sq ft of floor area. The required thickness of Spray-Applied Fire Resistive Materials on the steel floor units with inserts shall be sprayed the entire length and width of the units between supports and shall extend beyond the edge of inserts onto adjacent floor units for a minimum horizontal width of 12 in. In floor spans (between supports) containing electrical inserts, the entire floor span (fluted and cellular steel floor units) must be sprayed with a minimum of 3/8 in. thickness of Spray-Applied Fire Resistive Materials.
