What Is A Transition Plate?

Gauge Metal Flat Plate For Steel Deck

A steel deck accessory comprised of a flat, light gauge steel plate that fastened with screws atop two adjacent pieces of metal deck when the orientation of the two deck sheets changes directions at the same structural support.

How A Transition Plate Works:

A transition plate makes the metal deck surface smooth of two or more sheets of metal decking that are orientated in different directions.

Why A Transition Plate Matters:

The plate hides the seam of the two different orientated sheets and creates a seal for when pouring concrete over the surface to prevent leakage.
