The Deck Demon button punch tool is designed to button punch or crimp the side lap of steel decking. It will work on metal decking as light as 24 gauge and as heavy as 16 gauge for both roof and floor deck.

A button punch is a tool designed to attach two sheets of metal decking. Steel decking has a male and female sidelap. The button punch will crimp both sheets together. In a roof deck application it increases the diaphragm shear values. When used on a floor deck it keeps the deck from separating during a concrete pour.
