Loadmaster is a roof deck construction system is integrally engineered for today's building
industry and is specifically applicable to attachment onto light gauge steel roof trusses.
Twenty-five years of engineering advancement has been developed for meeting every building
Each Loadmaster Roof Deck Assembly is engineered not only for the unique needs of each
building design but to develop composite structural performance among components. Superior
Truss & Panel will provide all engineering services necessary fromthe bearing plate up to
include light gauge steel trusses and the Loadmaster roof deck system (see Services button
for further information).
The flexible interfacing of 105 components delivers well in excess of 5000 possible assemblies.
Each component is engineered and designed for compatibility and complementary structural
The Loadmaster system has twelve assembly configurations, derived from three original structures,
with each having four options. The three structures are "Basic" (Duraflex Mineral
Board affixed tobar joist and corrugated steel decking),"Insulated" (Duraflex Mineral
Board and insulation affixed tocorrugated steel decking on top of light gauge steel trusses or
bar joist)and "Dual Board" (Duraflex Mineral Board (2 layers) with optional
insulation affixed to corrugated steel decking on top of light gauge steel trusses).
Each of these structures can be warranted (from 10 to 40 years depending on components) nailable
substrate for shingle, metal or tiled roofing.
Over 5000 Assembles:
Over 5000 different assembly combinations are available within the possibilities developed
from 105 component choices and the 12 assembly configurations. These will meet virtually
all types of building designs, all model building code requirements and will function as a
substrate for all types of roof covering.
Finest Quality Components:
Duraflex Mineral Board
At the heart of Loadmaster's superior performance is the unique Duraflex Mineral Board,
manufactured to perform as an ideal and warranted substrate for virtually all types of
