The UK Metal Decking Association has been formed by the leading companies in the Metal Decking and Studwelding industry.

The construction industry identified that there was a need for authoritative guidance, training and qualifications for the specialist trades concerned, drawing from the industry experts within our membership.

The members represent over 80% of the Metal Decking and Studwelding Industry installing over five million square metres of metal decking and over twenty million shear connectors per year, in sectors as varied as Construction, Petro-Chemical and Power Generation.

Our objective is to create an accident free environment whilst setting high standards and levels of quality within our industry. We will provide the industry with guidance and information on the good practice expected of bona-fide contractors and suppliers.

We will be setting the standard required for safety training, occupational qualifications and environmental performance by working closely with industry bodies such as CITB, HSE, UKCG and training experts.
