Current SDI Priorities

With the organization’s latest priorities in mind, SDI aims to blend the rich history and expertise of its membership to both build credibility for steel deck and realize a future of growth.

Are Your Roof Members Overstressed?

Traditional membrane roof systems on steel decks have a uniform wind uplift load transfer, but newer single-ply membrane roof systems, particularly those with wider sheets, use seam-fastened, mechanically attached methods resulting in larger tributary uplift loads per fastener and non-uniform loading configurations.

Fastening Steel Deck

Steel floor or roof deck is only as good as its fastening. Whether it is the performance of the product as a diaphragm to transfer wind or seismic forces, resisting wind uplift, acting as a concrete form, providing bracing to beams or joists, or providing a safe working platform during construction, proper fastening makes the deck do its job.
