Main Features

Structural Panel Concrete Roof Deck is versatile and economic option for both low and steep slope roofs. Unlike traditional roofing systems where multiple layers are required, Concrete Roof Deck is both the noncombustible structural sheathing and either the nail base or thermal barrier.
  • The only cementitious structural panel approved by Factory Mutual (FM) — FM Approval Standard 4472
  • Installed up to 48” on center over cold-formed steel framing, 1/4” bar joists, or wood framing, to create 1and 2 hour fire-rated roof/ceiling assemblies
  • Strong, durable concrete panel; great uplift ratings
  • Dimensionally stable; panel will not buckle or warp like wood sheathing; no moisture issues like traditional poured concrete
  • Lay, fasten and finish
  • Faster: Providing a dry construction method gives the ability to apply roof system immediately after Roof Deck installation
  • Meets the criteria of ASTM E136-16 for use in all types of noncombustible construction
  • Made in the USA

  • How do you install USG Structural Panel Concrete Roof Deck?

  • What are USG Structural Panels?

    A: USG Structural Panels are a portfolio of three products: Subfloor, Roof Deck and Foundation Wall. These cured-in-factory 3/4" panels are high-strength, fiberglass reinforced concrete panels for use in noncombustible construction. The panels are certified noncombustible by Underwriters Laboratories Inc (UL) in accordance with the current version of ASTM E136. Taking the place of traditional poured concrete & metal deck in cold-formed steel framing, USG Structural Panels are a lighter & easier solution, requiring only the basic carpentry tools for installing these panels.

  • Can the USG Structural Panels be used as a wall?

    A: Yes, static shear wall capacities available in Product Evaluation Report PER-13067

    (www.PER13067.com).

  • Who can install USG Structural Panels?

    A: The carpenter typically leads the installation of USG Structural Panel, which allows you to eliminate the many trades needed to pour concrete.

  • Where can I find the load tables for USG Structural Panel Concrete Roof Deck?

  • What are the benefits of using USG Structural Panels vs. poured concrete?

    USG Structural panels are:

    • Lighter – less weight, less overall structural material
    • Faster – no wait for curing, fewer trades (carpenters can install USG Structural Panels), greater schedule flexibility, faster time to open
    • Lower risk – no moisture uncertainty, cured so there is no excessive free water
    • Lower total installed cost – fewer trades, less material, less equipment, faster time to open
  • How are USG Structural Panels typically supported? What is the typical span?

    A: USG Structural Panels can be supported by 18 ga. (43 mil.) or higher Cold-Formed Steel framing, SPF lumber, or Hot-Rolled Steel framing.

    Typical span:

    • Subfloor: 12", 16", 24"
    • Roof Deck: 12", 16", 24", 32"*, 48"*
    • *Refer to page 4, http://www.PER14076.com for proper blocking instructions.

  • Are all panels equivalent to USG Structural Panel?

    A: Subfloor is typically used in midrise buildings, health facilities, theaters, hotels, residential buildings and homes, multipurpose midrise buildings, panelized construction or in simple platforms or mezzanines. It is also used as the lightweight floor in permanent modular construction.

    Roof Deck can be used for commercial low-slope or residential sloped roofing, balconies, and canopies. To see more information on what can be applied to USG Structural Roof Deck, reference High Performance Roof Applications (SCP68).

    Foundation Wall can be used for foundation renovation or new building foundation construction, full-height basements, storm shelters, crawl space, and cellars.

  • Where has USG Structural Panel been installed?

    A: View USGStructuralVideos.com for Project Profiles on just a few of the projects that have used USG Structural Panel.

  • As a structural wall panel, is USG Structural Panel good for blast protection?

    A: Yes, when mounted on one side of 6" wall studs at 16"o.c., USG Structural Panel can attain GSA level ‘C’ protection (4psi blast pressure, 28psi-ms maximum blast impulse). If USG Structural Panel is mounted on both sides of the wall 6" stud at 16"o.c., USG Structural Panel can attain GSA level ‘D’ protection (10psi maximum blast pressure and 89psi-ms maximum blast impulse).

  • How do we achieve meaningful time saving on a project using USG Structural Panles?

    A: USG Structural Panel is easy to install (lay, fasten), and only requires a single trade. Unlike poured concrete, it can be installed in any weather and it eliminates the wait to cure and dry. Other trades (e.g. mechanical and electrical) can begin work sooner. Schedule compression leads to lower project cost and faster time to open.
