Title: A Revealing Look into the Effective Use of Dovetail Metal Decks in Roof Systems


Architecturally exposed metal deck systems are commonly used in building construction today to provide a reliable structural element that can carry loads to primary structural members and be the finished ceiling of a given environment.

This presentation prepares a designer to be able to employ dovetail metal deck profiles into projects successfully yielding a system that provides strength, serviceability and aesthetics in the built environment.

Learning Objectives:

Participants will be able to:

  • Specify dovetail metal deck systems without oil canning in a given commercial environment;
  • Recognize the difference between how standard acoustical metal deck profiles absorb sound and how dovetail metal deck profiles absorb sound;
  • Design exposed metal deck ceilings without fasteners visibly penetrating the system;
  • Differentiate between prime painted metal deck systems and finished painted metal deck systems in a given commercial environment.

Joists and Joist Girders

Joists are custom-made structural steel components used to support the floors or roof of a building.
