Joists & Decks

The Pillars and Plates: Steel Joists & Decks

In the grand mosaic of construction, certain elements provide not just support but the very foundation upon which structures rest. Steel joists and decks play this pivotal role, creating platforms and supporting loads, all while remaining inconspicuous. At The Wm. Lang and Sons Co., we champion these unsung heroes of construction, offering unparalleled quality in fabricated steel joists and decks, rooted in generations of expertise.


The pillars and Plates: Steel Joists & Decks

Steel joists, often referred to as the ‘bones’ of a building, are horizontal support members running between walls, beams, or columns. They distribute the load from the surface above, be it floors or roofs. Steel decks, on the other hand, are corrugated metal plates that span across joists, providing a base for flooring materials or serving as structural support.

Types of Joists & Decks

Types of Steel Joists:

  • K-Series Joists: Standard joists suitable for most commercial buildings.
  • LH & DLH-Series Joists: Designed for longer spans and heavier loads.
  • Special Profile Joists: Customized for unique architectural needs.

Types of Steel Decks:

  •  Roof Decks: Designed to support roofing materials and insulation.
  • Composite Decks: Work in tandem with concrete to optimize structural integrity.
  •  Form Decks: Serve as a permanent form for concrete slabs.
