Simpson BVLZ-KT1 Brick Veneer Ledger Connector

The Simpson BVLZ-KT1 Brick Veneer Ledger Connector provides a new code-compliant, tested solution for safely adding a deck to an existing house with brick veneer exterior. It attaches a wood ledger to the framing through the veneer. This patent-pending connector kit provides a viable alternative to building a free-standing deck, and it installs without having to remove or replace large sections of brick veneer.

The BVLZ brick veneer ledger connector kit includes a steel ledger plate, a compression strut, installation guide, two 14" Strong-DriveĀ® SDWH Timber-Hex HDG tension screws and six Strong-Drive SD Connector shear screws. It's designed so the two tension screws pass through the mortar into the structural framing, and the compression strut transfers compression forces from the ledger plate to the rim joist. The system enables the ledger to hang freely without bearing on the brick veneer.

Key Features:

  • Allows for drilling through the mortar joints
  • Enables inspection/approval by building departments in a retrofit construction application
  • Accommodates a wide range of air gaps and brick sizes
  • Minimizes penetrations through existing exterior water barriers

Simpson Strong Tie Hardware

Just like your home, it's important to make sure your deck is built right. Most experts agree that the average life expectancy of a wood deck is 10 to 15 years. It is estimated that there are millions of decks in the U.S. that are beyond their useful life and may be unsafe. In fact, the number of deck collapses has increased in recent years. Since 1999, there have been more than 850 reported injuries and 20 deaths as a result of deck failures. Simpson Strong Tie supplies all the correct deck framing hardware, like joist hangers, needed to create safe, strong, and code compliant deck & porch framing.

If you're building a deck or have an existing deck, you should know how to evaluate its construction to make sure it's structurally sound and safe. Using the proper structural connectors and fasteners (like nails and screws) as well as regular maintenance are the keys to a safe, strong deck. At The Deck Store we invite you to learn more about how to make your deck safe. We are the deck experts, come in or contact us with your deck framing connection questions.
