metal system to slope flat roof deck

Guest User
a customer asked the question if her flat concrete roof deck can be sloped for new standing seam roofing. Of course wood framing or trusses can be built or manufactured to achieve a 2/ 12 slope, my question is there a light weight metal framing system that is designed to be easily installed to provide slope so we can then install metal roofing?

How flat is flat? Whats the layout of the roof? I don't know of anything that is pre-built from a framing system per se. There is slope polyiso.

take a look at the structural u's that we manufacture; you can build a light weight truss system using the hat and u sections to build up the appropriate slope.
