Re: Questions regarding composite steel form-deck

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

I bet he is trying to but the deck himself along with the closures and needs details on these items so he doesn't have to get a deck detailer involved. You probably will not get any submittals on this either.

There are steel service centers who buy runs of different deck from a mill like Vulcraft. Here at Irwin Steel we buy deck like that when we need one or two sheets, it is easier than going to the mill.

I have a question from a contractor who I believe is not familiar with
composite steel deck for floors, and who says he wants more detailed
information on the end-, edge-, and gap-closures we show on our engineering drawings.

Basically, I spec'ced out the deck, chapter and verse, then noted that the supplier should figure out all the stuff that goes with that for the above. It sounds as though he wants us to detail everything.

I'm not well-versed in how this goes other, but assumed that so long as we show where everything goes, and the dimensions are clear, a typical deck supplier would handle this.

Any comments based on experience?
