How To Get A Punchlok II Tool For Verco And Vulcraft Metal Decking

B Deck - Verco Punchlok II

PLB-36™ - 1.5" Deep

PLB-36 and HSB-36 panels are identical in both geometry and material properties. The prefix "PL" designates a PunchLok II version of the B profile, while "HS" (high shear) indicates a top seam weld, button punch, or screw version of the same profile. When the job is specified as Punchlok II, then a Punchlok II tool must be used for the sidelap attachment. This method of attachment allows for higher shear values and must be done correctly or the building design could fail. 

PLB-36 is good in stock in the following gauges 22, 20, 18, 16 Gauge.

Immediate availability of Punclok II roof deck in lengths ranging from 6'-2" to 35'-6". Verco PLB-36 can be custom run to longer lengths if needed.
