What Is A Cant Strip?

An accessory for steel deck that is used where metal decking and a wall intersect for the purpose of directing rain water away from the wall when used with other waterproofing materials.

How Cant Strips Work:

When roofing, a cant strip is a three sided accessory that is placed where the roof deck intersects with the surrounding walls. By doing so the cant strip helps seal the edge and shed away unwanted water from seeping inside. 

Why Cant Strips Matter:

A cant strip provides a smooth transition from horizontal to vertical surfaces that protects against having a sharp bend at the edge of the metal deck.
