Roof deck comes in Four standard types: A deck, B deck, F deck, and N deck, in 1-1/2” to 3” depths and a variety of panel widths, gauges, and finishes.
Installed directly over structural steel, metal roof deck serves as the structural substrate in roof construction and provides a solid work surface for the installation of insulation, weatherproofing, and roofing materials. It can be left exposed for open ceiling designs or manufactured with added acoustical perforations to help meet sound absorption needs.
Composite deck is used to create a steel/concrete composite floor. The rolled-in mechanical embossments–or bumps–in the vertical ribs form a mechanical bond with the concrete slab to develop a composite floor system. It is used as both a form during construction and as the positive reinforcing of the concrete slab.
Form deck, or Type C, provides the metal platform that supports concrete slabs for constructing floor systems. Stay-in-place form deck is the most economical flooring to use with structural concrete.
