The Go-To Metal Decking Suppliers  

If you’re in discussions with a customer to commence a large-scale building project, you’re going to need to source certain materials, such as steel floor and roof profiles. Such profiles are important to the structure of any building, whether it be a small house or a large high-storey building. But not all profiles are made equal, and it’s important to note this as using sub-standard steel profiles could be catastrophic. 

Here at SMD Stockyards, we stock the widest range of steel roof and floor deck profiles around. Our products are of the highest quality, manufactured using premium-quality metal to an exacting standard. We’ve supplied steel profiles that have been used to construct all manner of buildings, helping to shape the UK’s skylines. And when you choose SMD Stockyards, you can enjoy great benefits such as nationwide coverage, next-day delivery, and credit accounts to simplify transactions. 

We’re an incredibly knowledgeable team of steel stockholders, and you’ll always receive the right advice, helping to steer you towards the right purchase. If you’re not entirely sure what it is you require, simply speak to our yard staff, and let them know what you’re working on. They’ll then recommend the right steel products. If you need pieces cut to size or bent to shape, they’ll be happy to get this done for you. And we even supply off-cuts for those odd jobs. 

Our Metal Decking Service  

Our metal decking service is one of the best around. As mentioned above, our yard staff are on hand to advise you and ensure you receive the right products. We recognise that not every client comes to us with the same requirements. At SMD Stockyards, we cut deck pieces to size free of charge, so each piece will slot into place, saving you a lot of time. All our products are branded and labelled based on pack sizes requested, so you can easily identify what you’re ordering. 

We boast the largest selection of products nationwide, with steel deck pieces delivered nationwide. Once you place your order, our team will get it prepped and ready for collection that very same day. If you’d like it delivered, we can arrange delivery within 24 hours of your order being placed.  

Roof Metal Decking  

Roof decking, also referred to as sheathing, forms the foundation of any roofing system, connecting the roof to the rest of the building. It essentially comprises the bones of the attic space and is important to the overall integrity of the building. You know how important it is, and when you come to SMD Stockyards, you’ll find top-quality steel roof deck pieces that can be cut to any size you need. 


Floor Metal Decking  

Floor decking serves much the same purpose as roof decking does. It is a corrugated steel sheet supported by steel joists or beams and is designed to support the concrete above. If you’re looking for top-quality steel floor deck pieces, look no further than SMD Stockyards. 

Examples of Our Metal Decking Products  

Before you make your purchase, we’d like to list a couple of examples of our excellent steel deck products, starting with the R51+ Floor Deck. The R51+ is a traditional re-entrant profile most commonly used in the construction of high, multi-storey projects in situations where the structural zone is limited. The principal reason for this is its impressive 1-hour fire rating which can be achieved with a relatively thin slab depth. 

The R51+ is available in 0.9mm, 1.0mm, and 1.2mm gauges and is manufactured from S350 and S450 grade galvanised steel. Soffit service fixings are available with a 1kN load capacity. 

An example of one of our excellent roof deck profiles is the SR35+ Roof Deck which is commonly used as a structural deck for a single-ply membrane. It sports a standing seam, is double-skin built-up, and is ideal for lightweight and roof-build on cold-rolled purlin. This deck profile is available in galvanised or polyester white coat options, measures 35mm deep and is available in 0.7mm, 0.9mm, and 1.2mm gauges. It is manufactured from S350 grade steel. 

Our yard carries a large supply of Metal Decking to purchase.

What are the Benefits of Using Metal Decking?  

There are many outstanding benefits to employing the use of our steel decking components. For those used to working with these components, you already know the benefits. For those unsure, we’ve listed them below: 

  • Cover for Following Trades 
  • Easily Incorporated into Complex Designs 
  • Excellent Tensile Reinforcement 
  • Fire Rating Up to Four Hours 
  • Integral Ceiling and Service Fixing System 
  • Minimal Site Storage Requirements 
  • Permanent Shuttering 
  • Provides Safe Working Platform (when fixed) 
  • Rapid Construction Speed 
  • Reduced Foundation Costs 
  • Reduced Steelwork Frame Weight 

Your overall project completion time can be slashed as steel decking allows for quicker installation times, thereby saving you money. If you’re concerned as to whether you’ll be able to achieve the same tensile reinforcement requirements of the slab while simultaneously lowering the steelwork frame weight, you’ll find steel decking can do both. Reduced weight equates to lower foundation costs. 

Deck profiles provide cover for the following trades, ensuring their safety while additional work is carried out. But what about site storage? If you’re concerned as to where you’re going to store them, don’t be. You can order steel decking ahead of time, and because it’s so compact, it can be stored neatly without getting in the way. And no matter how complex your design might be, know that structural steel decking can be integrated into complex designs while minimising wastage. This helps keep costs down.
