Strong as steel - because it is steel.
Every understructure is under attack...
From the day they are built, wood deck understructures are under attack. The forces of nature & the chemicals used to treat the lumber are hard at work compromising the stability of any traditional understructure… unless that understructure is a SteelDeck framing system.
Steel joists offer a deck framing solution that is strong, durable, efficient, economical and easy to install.
Constructed of a combination of 12, 14 and 16 gauge coated steel, SteelDeck is anything but a backyard project building material. It is an engineered structural system. Our coated steel is dimensionally stable; it doesn't expand, twist or warp, leaving the deck level like the day it was built. It provides the perfect foundation to any top surface decking material & helps eliminate many of the common problems associated with traditional understructures such as:
- Damage-corrosion reactions
- Fire and water damage
- Mold and decay
