NRDCA Guidelines

AIA Registered “Engineered Roof Deck Systems” Program:

The NRDCA has enhanced the “Engineered Roof Deck Systems” program by modifying the current program to include HSW and SD information. Based on these enhancments the program is now AIA/CES approved for 1 Learning Unit, HSW and SD. The NRDCA program titled “Engineered Roof Deck Systems” provides information on three currently available composite roof deck systems that include mineral board-steel deck systems, light weight insulating concrete systems, and cementitious wood fiber systems. Repair information is also provided for poured gypsum roof deck systems.

This PowerPoint slide program presented by a NRDCA member runs for 1 hour and the leaning objectives to be received from this program are:

  • Understand how three types of roof decks provide structural properties to resist downward and wind uplift loads meeting current code requirements.
  • Understand the installation procedures and attributes of roof deck systems and how they improve in place insulation, fire protection, and acoustical performance.
  • Understand the proper repair of poured gypsum roof decks installed in the 40’s, 50’s, and 60’s to allow continued use of these systems without removal and disposal costs.
  • Understand the LEED values, code requirements, and sustainable attributes of the roof decks.
