Ferrobord Metal Roof Deck

Ferrobord Metal Roof Deck

Ferrobord Metal Roof Deck

I am working on an old building where all I have for drawings is an rtu addition plan.  The drawing indicates the existing deck is assumed to be 1-1/2" 16ga Ferrobord by Republic Steel Roof Deck.  I could not find any information on this type of deck.  Test cuts revealed the deck is constructed using 6" wide by 1-1/2" deep metal "planks".  Each plank locks into the adjacent one.  The supporting steel beams are spaced at 10' apart.  Does anyone have information on this type of roof deck?  I have attached a photo for reference.

RE: Ferrobord Metal Roof Deck

If push comes to shove, measure the thickness, compute an I, assume a Fy and make some calculations.  If you can - get a test specimen and have it checked out.
