1.5″ Type B Roof Deck
Type B Roof Deck is 1.5″ deep. Also known as wide rib, this structural metal roof deck provides a support surface for various types of roofing materials. 1.5" B deck's wider rib profile allows for more insulation to be installed.
Roof deck products act alone in transferring horizontal and vertical loads into the building frame. Roof Deck does not work compositely with other building materials.

Construction and maintenance loads:
SPANS are governed by a maximum stress of 26 ksi (180 MPa) and a maximum deflection of L/240 with a 200-pound (0.89 kN) concentrated load at midspan on a 1'-0" (300mm) wide section of deck. If the designer contemplates loads of greater magnitude, spans shall be decreased or the thickness of the steel deck increased as required. All loads shall be distributed by appropriate means to prevent damage to the completed assembly during construction.
