FAQs

Can G&M Safe Deck panels be cut to a smaller size?

Yes, the full size panel can be cut in half, thirds, two-thirds or sixths. The Safe Deck panel is designed to be cut down without loss of rigidity or strength. Consequently the panel can be re-used even if it is damaged. Thereby cutting down on waste and loss.

Do you have half sized panels available?

Yes. G&M Safe Deck Ltd care a great deal about our customers and the support we provide them. Consequently we listen to what our customers want. We were asked by our customers for a Safe Deck half panel they could purchase as a separate item as and when they needed them. As a result of this we have gone into R&D and developed a half panel. The Safe Deck half panel has been tested by a UKAS accredited test centre. Consequently we have testing data which proves the Safe Deck half panel has the same loading capability and characteristics as the standard full size panel.

Can safety deck be loaded?

G&M Safe Deck has undergone rigorous testing by Lucideon (formerly CERAM – a UKAS accredited testing (0013) and calibration. (0420) UK laboratory) and can be loaded to 2.0kN/m2.

The safety decking panel has been successfully tested for:

  • Uniformly distributed load (UDL) to serviceability load
  • Soft body impact tests in accordance with ACR(M)001:2000 Test for Fragility of Roofing Assemblies
  • Point loads over several test positions through a 100mm x 100mm spreader plate
