  • Assistance with health and safety.
  • Advice on logistics.

Free in-practice presentations
Our experienced representatives are quite happy to meet with you. We will customise their presentation to meet your needs. But are quite happy to speak on:

  • Developments in the mid-floor market in New Zealand: Keeping you informed of new products and cost developments in the New Zealand market.
  • ComFlor technical engineering questions: Our presenters have solid engineering backgrounds and can answer difficult technical questions related to ComFlor and mid-floors in general.
  • ComFlor construction hints and tips: Our presenters have practical experience
    so we can answer difficult construction related questions.
  • Costing comparisons across system types: An interesting overview of cost comparisons across systems.
  • New international construction trends: Through our sister companies around the world we are familiar with international construction trends and can often share these with you.

Design software

  • We offer ComFlor software to assist you as you design with ComFlor.
  • This software has been developed by the Steel Construction Institute of the United Kingdom using the latest industry thinking available. It is incredibly flexible software that takes into consideration point loads, line loads and fire configurations, as well as the use of normal or lightweight concrete. Using these and other input variables ComFlor software creates span configurations for mid-floors constructed from ComFlor.


  • ComFlor has its own specialist installation division, known as Composite Floor Decking Limited (CFDL) for the installation of ComFlor and welded shear studs.
  • As part of Studwelders UK, CFDL is part of a large international installation company. As such it brings very high levels of professionalism to everything it does, for instance the latest technology for doing ‘as-built drawings’ and creating accurate cutting lists. They also produce fully detailed construction drawings of the decking, so constructors can monitor progress.
  • CFDL offer national coverage with offices in both Auckland and Christchurch.
  • They pride themselves on doing jobs efficiently and in a very safe manner.
  • CFDL have four resident teams that can work independently or linked together to handle any size of project. When increased labour resources are required the international nature of the Studwelders network means man power can be imported as demand dictates.
  • CFDL can provide a fixed ‘supply and install’ price or simply a ’supply’ price for self installation of ComFlor, however for best results it is recommended you take advantages of the experienced CFDL team to keep your project on track.
