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-Drive® 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.
- 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
