What Is A Swedged End?

The process using dies at the end of a profiled sheet of metal deck, in order to create a slight flare which allows the panel ends to be easily laid on top of each other during erection.

How A Swedged End Is Created:

Dies are used to forge the steel sheets into having a flared edge profile during fabrication.

Why Having A Swedged End Matters:

A flared edge profile makes it easier to overlap edges of metal deck when laying the sheets next to each other repeatedly during construction.
