Strong decks bring beauty and entertaining space to your outdoor living area
Building a safe, strong deck starts with the proper connectors and fasteners
Installing corrosion-resistant connectors and fasteners helps extend the life of your deck
Strong-Drive® SDWH Timber-Hex HDG screw delivers high-strength, wood-to-wood connectivity, such as deck ledger applications
Don’t take chances with guardrail connections. DTT2Z deck tension ties fasten guardrails to deck framing.
Install DTT1Z as a tension tie to meet building codes and eliminate the need to access to the floor joists inside the home
LSCZ adjustable stair-stringer connector offers a concealed connection between the stair stringer and the carrying header or rim board
Provides bearing and uplift resistance
Ideal for preventing lateral movement of joists
The only screw approved with Simpson Strong-Tie connectors
LCEZ end post caps provide a post-to-beam connection in new or retrofit deck applications
Features a 1 in. standoff to resist wood decay
Deck-Drive DWP stainless-steel fasteners are recommended for higher-exposure environments or applications
With the post in the vertical position and a total height of 8' it is estimated to be around 6500 lbs. So the design of this base support exceeds this limitation plus the weight of the post.
Yes, but you will probably have to adjust the height of each post to accommodate the bracket. This would require that you jack up the deck immediately adjacent to the post to make the proper adjustment.
Anchors post to the floor (slab in my case) of my deck
I don't see why not. That assumes at least four posts will be used. If you are thinking of one of those unbrella type pergolas with one or two posts, they won't.
I used 5/8” x 10” wedge anchor. 1/2” would also work. You can prob use wedge, sleeve or epoxy to anchor depending upon what you prefer.
You could but shouldn't. The standoff helps to prevent water wicking up the post and rotting it from the bottom up.
Less than an inch. 3/4 as far as I recall.
No they're adjustable side to side so you have some room to align a few posts.
No. These are meant to take direct load to concrete so think of a post on a deck pier with the post being cross tied. They're not designed to take lateral stress.
