Vulcraft ROOF & FLOOR DECKING

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.

Peterson Company offers a selection of two finishes: Prime painted and Galvanized

Prime painted – prior to applying a baked-on acrylic medium gray primer, the cold rolled sheet is chemically cleaned and pre-treated. An off-white primer is available at an additional cost.
Galvanized – Vulcraft galvanized decks are supplied from mill coated sheets conforming to ASTM-A653-94, Structural Quality, and Federal Spec. QQ-S-775, and they are offered in two zinc coated finishes.

Vulcraft Decking Chart
  1. Load tables are calculated using sectional properties based
    on the steel design thickness shown in the Steel Deck Institute (SDI) Design Manual.
  2. Loads shown in the shaded areas are governed by the live load deflection not in excess of 1/240 of the span. A dead load of 10 PSF has been included.
  3. **Acoustical Deck is not covered under Factory Mutual.

Type B (wide rib) deck provides excellent structural load carrying capacity per pound of steel utilized, and its nestable design eliminates the need for die set ends. 1” or more rigid insulation is required for Type B deck.
