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.
