This type of form deck requires less concrete but spans shorter distances than deeper form decking. Since this form is lighter weight, it is ideal for small spans and residential applications. The 9/16” form deck is used for standard duty projects and provides a strong foundation for forming slabs while giving lateral stability to structural members.

9/16” Form deck Installation
We always recommend that the form deck be installed by qualified and experienced workers for a safe and effective application.
This metal form deck can be used in a variety of ways, as it does not have the same design or profile constraints as other form decks. The steel framing works well independently or in combination with other structural systems.
Form deck should always be placed in accordance with approved erection drawings. Each form deck unit shall be placed on supporting steel framework and adjusted to final positions before permanently fastened. An unfastened deck should never be used as a working platform or storage area.
If your project requires cutting of openings through the deck, cutting should be performed in the field. Openings should be cut and reinforced if necessary in accordance with the Steel Decking Institute.

Protecting & Storing your 9/16” Form Deck
Our metal form deck is intended for structural purposes and indoor use. Galvanized products that are stored outside may have oxidized over time, however, this will not affect the structural integrity of the steel.
To protect your form deck from corrosion or damage, store the deck off the ground with one end elevated for drainage. You can protect your 9/16” form deck from condensation and moisture with a waterproof covering.
