ROOF DECK: All deck sold by Bushwick Metals is manufactured by members of the Steel Deck Institute.

TYPE B DECK
B deck provides the best balance of strength and economy of all the 1.5”-deep roof decks. Rigid insulation must be a minimum of 1” thick for B deck to be used. Available with nested and interlocking side-laps and as an acoustic deck, B deck is manufactured from steel conforming to A653. 

Several finishing options are available: The standard prime-painted finish is gray and covers both the top and bottom sides of the decking. The galvanized finish is available in G40, G60, and G90 coatings. The third option includes two coats of bright white primer on the bottom of the decking with a prime-painted or galvanized top. The prime-painted finish is intended to protect the steel for a reasonable installation period while exposed to ordinary atmospheric conditions and shall be considered an impermanent and provisional coating.

TYPE A DECK
A deck is designed to be installed with thinner, more economical insulation materials. Built to allow maximum top-surface contact in order to support roofing insulation, A deck is manufactured from steel conforming to ASTM A653.  Unlike other deck types, Type A roof deck is not generally used in new construction. Instead, its applications include repair projects and reroofing, as it’s the least efficient steel roof deck and has the lowest strength-to-weight ratio. 

TYPE N DECK

Twice as deep as B deck (and therefore considerably stronger), N Deck is designed for applications in which the supporting members need to be spaced as far apart as possible, minimizing the total number of structural members and thus reducing overall cost. This is ideal for large structures such as auditoriums and gymnasiums, in which the long structural members required to span large open spaces can be very heavy and quite costly. 

Manufactured from steel conforming to A653, N deck is available with several finishing options: The standard prime-painted finish is gray and covers both the top and bottom sides of the decking. The galvanized finish is available in G40, G60, and G90 coatings. The third option includes two coats of bright white primer on the bottom of the decking with a prime-painted or galvanized top. The prime-painted finish is intended to protect the steel for a reasonable installation period while exposed to ordinary atmospheric conditions and shall be considered an impermanent and provisional coating.

N deck is also available as an acoustic deck (which is known as type NA) which is predominantly suitable in structures such as auditoriums, schools, and theatres where sound control is required. Acoustical perforations are placed in the vertical webs where the load carrying properties are slightly affected (less than 5%). Neither type N nor NA is certified under Factory Mutual. 

FORM DECK
Form deck can be used as a structural support for insulating roof-fill systems or a
permanent form for concrete floor and roof slabs. Ideal for projects in which steel or concrete composite is not required, Form deck’s applications include floors and stairways in both residential and commercial applications. We offer several profile patterns, each of which has been designed to reduce the required volume of fill, present a high strength-to-weight ratio, and decrease erection time.

COMPOSITE DECK

1.5″ COMPOSITE DECK

Bushwick Metals’ 1.5″ composite deck acts as a form during the concrete pour, allowing the designer to space the structural members to over 10’0″ o. c. without any additional shoring. Our 1.5″ composite deck has embossments in the vertical rib that bind with the concrete slab to create a composite-floor system. Once the concrete cures, the resulting composite-floor system offers both superior strength and stiffness. Available in nested and interlocking side-laps, 1.5” composite deck is manufactured from steel conforming to A653. 

Our 1.5” composite deck is available with several finishing options: The standard prime-painted finish is gray and covers both the top and bottom sides of the decking. The galvanized finish is available in G40, G60, and G90 coatings. The third option includes two coats of bright white primer on the bottom of the decking with a prime-painted or galvanized top. The prime-painted finish is intended to protect the steel for a reasonable installation period while exposed to ordinary atmospheric conditions and shall be considered an impermanent and provisional coating. 

2″ COMPOSITE DECK
Bushwick Metals’ 2″ composite deck acts as a form during the concrete pour, allowing the designer to space the structural members to over 12’0″ o. c. without any additional shoring. Our 2″ composite deck has embossments in the vertical rib that bind with the concrete slab to create a composite-floor system. Once the concrete cures, the resulting composite-floor system offers both superior strength and stiffness. Available in nested and interlocking side-laps, 2” composite deck is manufactured from steel conforming to A653. 

Our 2” composite deck is available with several finishing options: The standard prime-painted finish is gray and covers both the top and bottom sides of the decking. The galvanized finish is available in G40, G60, and G90 coatings. The third option includes two coats of bright white primer on the bottom of the decking with a prime-painted or galvanized top. The prime-painted finish is intended to protect the steel for a reasonable installation period while exposed to ordinary atmospheric conditions and shall be considered an impermanent and provisional coating. 

3″ COMPOSITE DECK

Bushwick Metals’ 3″ composite deck acts as a form during the concrete pour, allowing the designer to space the structural members to over 14’0″ o. c. without any additional shoring. Our 3″ composite deck has embossments in the vertical rib that bind with the concrete slab to create a composite-floor system. Once the concrete cures, the resulting composite-floor system offers both superior strength and stiffness. Available in nested and interlocking side-laps, 3” composite deck is manufactured from steel conforming to A653. 

Our 3” composite deck is available with several finishing options: The standard prime-painted finish is gray and covers both the top and bottom sides of the decking. The galvanized finish is available in G40, G60, and G90 coatings. The third option includes two coats of bright white primer on the bottom of the decking with a prime-painted or galvanized top. The prime-painted finish is intended to protect the steel for a reasonable installation period while exposed to ordinary atmospheric conditions and shall be considered an impermanent and provisional coating. 

STEEL JOISTS: All joists sold by Bushwick Metals are manufactured by members of the Steel Joist Institute.

K SERIES JOIST
K series joist was mainly developed to act as a structural support for the floors and roofs of buildings. This type of joist possesses a number of key advantages that have made it widely used and accepted throughout the United States and other countries:

  • Steel K series joists are affordable. For many types of buildings, no other products or methods for supporting floors and roofs can compete with steel joists from an economical perspective. 
  • They possess an exceptionally high strength–to-weight ratio in comparison to other building materials. 
  • Upon arrival at the job site, the joists are ready immediately for proper installation. 
  • Their light weight makes the erection procedure simple and fast. 

Bushwick Metals’ K-Series joist receives a shop-coat of rust inhibitive primer whose performance characteristics conform to those of the Steel Joist Institute specification 3.3.

LH and DLH SERIES JOIST
Longspan (LH) and deep-longspan (DLH) steel joists are relatively lightweight shop-fabricated
steel trusses. LH steel joists are used for the direct support of floors and roof decks while DLH joists are used for the direct support of roof decks.  Both series have been specifically designed to extend the use of joists to spans in excess of those covered by open-web joists. 

Bushwick Metals’ LH and DLH joists receive a shop-coat of rust inhibitive primer whose performance characteristics conform to those of the Steel Joist Institute specification 102.4.
