CAKRADECK® Metal Deck Panels

Metal deck is a cold formed corrugated metal sheet supported by steel joists or beams. It is used to support concrete or insulating membrane of a roof. It was developed to provide a structurally efficient product for use in roof and floor systems.

Excellent lateral diaphragm action or reduce structural bracing.

Its design and fabrication maximizes the properties of the steel in order to create a high strength-to-weight ratio, which lowers the material, handling, and erection costs but maintains the durability that has been proven by over 50 years of satisfactory performance.

Despite the fact that it is a structural component, its uniform quality can offer an attractive appearance, especially with the use of properly specified shop and field applied coatings. Steel deck is also a component of many UL and ULC approved fire rated assemblies.

Floor Deck

CAKRADECK®'s metal deck panels provide excellent lateral diaphragm action thus reducing the necessity for structural bracing. Their incombustible nature assures architects, engineers and owners of excellent fire ratings.

Metal deck comes in many thicknesses of Galvanized and Galvanneal steel. Galvanneal coating can be easily field painted. The HiBond (HB) Floor Deck Series of profiles have embossed lugs in the web of the profile to allow for greater bonding with concrete, producing a high strength composite section.

Metal Deck Diaphragm

The metal deck sheets used for roofs and floors provide support for gravity loads between the joists and/or beams. Once installed, these sheets can also be used as a horizontal brace, therefore, allowing the steel deck to act as a diaphragm.

By analogy, the fluted deck is equivalent to the web of a horizontal beam of which the flanges are the perimeter structural members connected to the deck. The span of that horizontal beam is defined by the distance between the vertical lateral load resisting systems connected to the deck.

The secondary elements form stiffeners for the web produced by the fluted deck. As for normal beams, the deck (web of horizontal beam) must be attached to the perimeter members (flange of horizontal beam) to ensure transfer of the shear forces.
