SMD puts flooring choice in the palm of your hands

Specialist SMD has developed a new mobile phone app which is a calculation tool enabling users to run simple span checks on its range of floor deck profiles.

The SMD Elements Span Check helps users to understand the options available for each product and what can be achieved with different types of specification.

Its launch coincides with the release of SMD’s new R51+ floor deck profile, allowing designers to look up the new product and check the new spans.

SMD brand manager Pete Watkins  said: “The idea to create a multi-feature application for internal company and external client use is very much part of SMD’s ongoing development programme as we strive to offer the best possible service.

“It complements our long-established and well-used SMD Elements Design software which is downloadable from the SMD website for Windows desktop use which enables more in-depth calculations.

“However, everyone works from a mobile these days, and because time is often of the essence, our app is set to prove invaluable for designers and engineers in allowing them to run checks quickly.”

As well as the main ‘Span Check’ tool for determining maximum deck spans, the new app features written technical help and a form for submitting queries, links to downloadable PDFs, website literature and FAQs.

Using a table of data, the app returns maximum span length results based on options entered by the user.

The app will be regularly updated to account for developments on new products.
