Steel roof and floor decks have long been recognized for their economy because of their light weight and high strength-to weight ratio. They provide a durable and attractive roof or floor system for fast all-weather construction. Steel decks also provide excellent lateral diaphragm action thus reducing the necessity for structural bracing and their incombustible nature assures architects, engineers and owners of excellent fire ratings.
