There's an ICBO Evaluation Report for Verco roof and floor decks, including
HSB-36 deck.  It's available as a PDF file from the ICBO website.

Subject: Metal Deck "18 GA HSB-36 Deck"?

I am working for a telecom company and the company is adding some electrical

equipments on top of an existing steel famed building roof. I am doing the 
design check on this structure to see if it can take the additional loading.

I encountered this note "18 GA HSB-36 Deck" in the existing roof frame 
drawing. Anyone knows what it means? From the drawing, the deck spans 
10'-12'. I would like to know about this deck: weight per square foot, how 
much uniform distributed load it can take. Or anyone knows where or which 
reference I can get this information.

Thank you very much in advance!
