Metal Deck Roofing

Metal Deck Roofing

Composite decking has become a common construction method throughout New Zealand.  The structure provides high strength with reduced weight to aid in both design and construction.  Metal deck profiles vary in shape but the most common is 80mm deep with 300mm centers.  The profile can be filled with light weight or normal weight concrete with a typical topping thickness of 80mm to 110mm.
 
Due to its recent emergence in the New Zealand market, anchor manufacturers have not completed testing for metric anchors in composite decking.  This restricts the options available for fixing of non-structural components and care must be taken to provide a compliant solution.
