By Anna Lockhart.  

The metal deck experts share their best tips and tricks for working with metal decking in this informative video series. 

A.C.T. Metal Deck Supply, the largest metal deck supplier in the country, is a trusted and well-known provider of quality metal deck supplies for contractors all across North America. Not only do they supply their customers with quality and reliable products, they also have created a wealth of educational resources that are available to view for free! In an initiative to provide their customer base with the materials and knowledge needed to take on any metal deck project, they have created an in-depth video series, “Metal Deck 101.”  

In this video series, the A.C.T. Metal Deck team highlight various metal deck materials and accessories commonly used in most metal deck projects. From the necessary tools and installation practices to the fundamental differences in panel types, these videos provide customers with the information needed to take on any basic metal decking challenge.  

In one of their featured videos, “Matching Existing Decks,” A.C.T. team member, Sarah, walks viewers through the process of matching new deck materials to an existing deck. She emphasizes the necessity of having the exact dimensions of the existing deck, such as the deck’s depth, rib to rib dimensions, flute dimensions and sidelap details so that the precise new materials can be ordered and installed with the best possible accuracy.   

Sarah also touches on the topic of discontinued metal deck profiles and how to best work with existing panels that are no longer available for purchase while bringing in new panel styles that can be used as replacements. She explains the best practices and panel types to consider for different roof deck projects based on size and styles.  

This brief, yet informative video introduces some of the most basic and the most important materials and measurements needed when working with existing roof decks. Viewers are able to also access this informative video, as well as the rest of the playlist, in English and Spanish.
