2 inch polyisocyanurate foam insulation for the SDI.
VERTICAL LOADS FOR TYPE 1.5B
1.5 B, BI, BA, BIA, BSV
Type B (wide rib) deck provides excellent structural load carrying
capacity per pound of steel utilized, and its nestable design eliminates
the need for die-set ends.
1" or more rigid insulation is required for Type B deck.
Acoustical deck (Type BA, BIA) is particularly suitable in structures
such as auditoriums, schools, and theatres where sound control is
desirable. Acoustic perforations are located in the vertical webs where
the load carrying properties are negligibly affected (less than 5%).
Inert, non-organic glass fiber sound absorbing batts are placed in the
rib openings to absorb up to 60% of the sound striking the deck.
Batts are field installed and may require separation.
