Versa-Dek® roof deck is ideal for mid-rise construction

Versa-Dek® Dovetail Roof Deck

Unleash your design potential with appealing linear plank aesthetics

Increase project performance and reduce costs with a versatile deck system

Versa-Dek® is a versatile and visually appealing dovetail deck that bolsters the cost-efficiency and structural performance of your project. Its signature shape creates a strong deck with impressive span and overhang capabilities, making it ideal for open interior and exterior spaces. The dovetail design also provides a clean, smooth, lineal plank ceiling aesthetic while concealing side-lap and fastener penetrations.

Versa-Dek® is available in lengths from 6’-0” to 40’-0”. Please check with your local New Millennium facility for lengths outside these parameters. Conforms to ASTM A1008/A1008M for uncoated and painted deck, A653/A653M for galvanized deck. Approved by UL, ULC and listed in the UL and ULC Fire Resistance Directories.

Refer to published tables for the minimum yield strength used for each deck type. Contact New Millennium for availability of higher yield strengths when required or use our deck specification tool to view load tables with commonly available non-standard yield strengths and/or gages.

Super Versa-Dek®

Super Versa-Dek® builds on the structural and aesthetic benefits of Versa-Dek® with added depth that increases its strength, providing impressive span capabilities that make it ideally suited for long, open interior and exterior spaces. Its strength is derived from a hybrid design. Super Versa-Dek® is fabricated using a (1.5-inch or 3-inch-deep) profile atop a Versa-Dek® 3.5 LS profile. The two profile are mechanically fastened to create a support surface for various types of above-deck materials.

Super Versa-Dek® includes an added rib stiffener along the dovetail shape to create a tighter lineal plank ceiling aesthetic. Optional factory-applied coatings can give ceilings an enhanced and visually appealing finish.
