    Dovetail roof and floor deck utilizes the strength of structural deck and the aesthetic appeal of a smooth linear plank look.  Its shape allows it to span farther distances with shallower floor depths enabling you to fit more floors into multi-story buildings. Dovetail is also known for its advanced acoustical properties. The shape of the flutes allows for more sound absorbing materials than other deck types which is why it is often used in gymnasiums, auditoriums, and theaters.
