What Is A Button Punch?

A tool that crimps two adjacent pieces of steel deck together at a side overlap. This operation requires a specific steel deck side lap profile.

How A Button Punch Works:

When two pieces of metal deck overlap edges, a button punch can be used to crimp the two sheets together to secure its place.

Why Using A Button Punch Matters:

A button punch crimps sheets of metal deck together in a quick and easy method when compared to welding or screwing decks together. Depending on the forces that will be applied to the deck, a button punch may be a great alternative to fastening metal deck.
