Q:Do these screws meet ASTM A153 standards? I used galvanized joist hangers on my pressure treated deck, and the inspector wants to know, “if the zinc coating weights for the deckmate screws are in accordance with ASTM A153. Meaning that the screws are not less than ASTM A653 type G185 zin-coated galvanized steel, or equivalent.”
