ZMAX 2x 14-Gauge Galvanized Deck Tension Tie

$775 /each

Product Overview

The DTT2Z is a safe, cost-effective way to attach deck-railing posts to the deck framing for stronger, safer railings. Because the post is tied back into the deck joists, rather than to the rim joist alone, the connection is stronger than typical through-bolt installations. The DTT2Z is also ideal for guardrail-post connections and lateral-load connections between the deck and house.

Tension ties seem to interfere with each other when installing adjacent posts on outside corner of deck. Answers?

How would you install proper blocking between the lateral band joist and the adjacent inside joist in situation where you need to place posts on both sides of outside corner of deck? Seems like the tension ties interfere with each other in the tight corner
Asked by: DarrenS
Please see the T-GRDRLPST10 technical bulletin on our website. The second application on page 2 details the installation described. Thank you!

Customer Reviews

ZMAX 2x 14-Gauge Galvanized Deck Tension Tie is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are great additions to the deck to tie rims... These are great additions to the deck to tie rims to the main joists. When you bolt the posts, consider using deck washers. The bolt depot has a great selection of 2" and 3" deck washers. I used a combination of ready rod and bolts. 1/2" ready rod came from McMaster and bolts came from bolt depot.
