SEAM Virtual Meeting: Vulcraft, Introduction to Metal Joists and Deck

Please join Gerry and Tony from Vulcraft for an introduction to metal joists and deck. Vulcraft is the largest producer of open web steel joists and joists girders in North America.
Open web steel joists are an engineered, truss-like construction component used to support loads over short and long spans alike. Typically used in non-residential construction, steel joists provide an economical system for supporting floors and roofs. Steel roof and floor decks have long been recognized for their economy because of their light weight and high strength-to-weight ratio.
