15/16” Form Deck Specifications
The 15/16” form deck is a metal form deck that covers 36 inches and features a rib spacing of 4 inches. This non-composite form deck is available in 26, 24, 22, and 20 gauges and comes in a galvanized finish, the standard in the steel decking industry. The galvanized finish is ideal for high moisture environments and ensures a durable and permanent application. It is also used for roof deck systems where form deck is used to carry a lightweight insulating concrete member. Every form deck from D-MAC Industries is crafted in accordance with the Steel Decking Institute and held to the highest quality standards.
Form Deck Installation
Like all form deck products, the 15/16” form deck should be installed by qualified and experienced workers. We will ask the decking contractor to approve all shop drawings prior to installation and decking should be installed in accordance with approved erection drawings.
The SDI (Steel Decking Institute) recommends not applying sealants at the ends or side laps of the form deck as this may impair its intended structural purpose. Make sure that the deck is properly fastened to the support members such as open-web steel joists and beams to provide a workable platform.
When installing a 15/16” form deck, keep these safety tips in mind:
- Make sure that hoisted loads are well balanced
- Do not stand under loads being hoisted and always keep loads in view
- Use proper hand signals to crane operators
- Never use single span bundles as a working platform
- Check that cutouts and openings are adequately supported and guarded
- Wear eye protection near welding

Handling and Storing 15/16” Form Deck
Form deck is banded into bundles that can weigh several thousand pounds. Each bundle is limited to a maximum of 4,000 pounds for the deck to be applied to joists. It’s important to protect the 15/16” form deck from corrosion and damage during storage and handling. When storing the form deck, elevate one end to provide drainage. Protect bundles of form deck against condensation and moisture with a ventilated waterproof covering and keep form deck protected from snow and salt.
Decks should be stored in bundles off the ground and should always be secured by bundle straps or banding to prevent damage. Tightness should be periodically checked, and additional securement should be used as needed. Under no circumstances should bundles be placed on unbolted frames or unattached or unbridged joists in accordance with the Steel Deck Institute.
If galvanized products are stored outside you may notice some oxidation on the surface. This does not affect the structural integrity of the steel, however, if your application requires decorative use, it’s important to take precautions to prevent oxidation. Our team can help make recommendations to prevent the form deck from oxidizing to maintain its aesthetically pleasing appearance.
