Metal roof decking has been around for decades. If you’re looking for it, you will find it on older buildings as well as newer construction. However, the metal decking you will find on older buildings is unlikely to match the metal decking profiles on the market today.
Metal decking can be used in a variety of commercial and industrial projects. This type of decking generally has a ribbed profile and can be used for flooring and roofing as well as fencing and gates. This type of decking can be welded as well as installed using screws.
Do you have a job that requires a trash enclosure? Most commercial buildings will require a trash enclosure structure, but there’s just not a lot of information available online. That makes finding someone that can build a set of trash dumpster gates a difficult procedure.
When you find yourself with a project that has a call out for metal roof deck, it is important to know your options. Metal roof deck comes in different profiles and each has different dimensions that affect the panels overall strength. A panel that is stronger will span longer distances, but will also cost more. Depending on how far you need your panel to span, will help determine which panel is right for you.
Type B Deck is the most common structural metal decking in the industry. It is an ideal structural substrate on short to medium span conditions that range from three feet to ten feet in distance. B Deck is lightweight, strong, economical, and easy to install. The panel in the image below is 1.5” deep and 36” wide.
