RE: Steel Roof Deck: Using wall panels

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Ron,

Assuming you are talking about screw down type of roofs we do offer a roof
with ribs 12" o.c.. For us the product is called Butlerib(r)II and is nearly
identical to the panel of the same name that we use on walls (some minor
edge differences to prevent capillary action on roof panels).  Most other
Metal building manufacturers also offer a similar roof/wall panel type with
ribs 12" o.c.  Another good source to look at for panels from general
availablity is from MBCI (a metal building component supplier).  They are
not strongly related to any one PEMB.  As always individual manufactures
should have the information also.

Some companies may use the same exact panel on walls and roofs.  My
recommendation is to make sure it has forming near the edge of the top sheet
which should prevent capillary action through the side lap.

Subject: Q:Steel Roof Deck: Using wall panels


I am evaluating several existing metal buildings.  They all have roof
decks with ribs at 12" o/c.  I have looked at SDI and they do not list a
roof deck with ribs this far apart.  Most ribs on roof decks are at 6"
o/c.  I have found several wall panels in catalogs with ribs at 12" o/c.

Is it typical for the builder to use wall panels for roof deck or is
there a roof panel available that has 12" spacing on the ribs??

TIA
