Default Corrugated roof experts

What is normally used to fill the gap between a beam and the roof decking? It is about a 5" gap. Need to block airflow. Sound deadening would be a plus.

What's the outside look like? Flat roof with iso insulation? Parapet wall? Frieze board? Metal coping?

Foam would work great but it looks like it would take a bunch.

I'd stuff it with fiberglass batt (3-1/2" x 15-1/2" would probably stuff in good if folded in half) then I would bend up some white aluminum coil stock to cover it all up.

The other side looks the same. It is an internal wall aprox 140í long. It was originally one open building before the landlord put the inside wall up to make two separate shops. The gap allows fumes and noise to pass like the wall isnít even there. The fiberglass will probably be the cheapest way to go even if there was something specifically made to fill that gap.
Thanks.

I would seriously spray foam it and if looks are a concern, cover it with the same sheeting that was used for roofing.
