The DTT2Z is a safe, cost-effective way to attach deck-railing posts to the deck framing. 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 and complies with IRC and IBC code requirements regarding handrail and guardrail post connections for decks. The DTT2Z also complies with the new IRC requirements for laterally tying the deck to the house. Additionally, the versatile DTT2Z is load rated as a hold down for light-duty shear walls and braced wall panel applications. The DTT2Z fastens easily to a single 2x joist or stud using Simpson Strong-Tie® Strong-Drive® screws (SDS) (included) and accepts a 1/2" machine bolt or anchor bolt DTT2Z - 14 gauge A standard cut washer must be installed between the nut and the seat. Simpson Strong-Tie SDS screws install best with a low speed high torque drill with a 3/8" hex head driver.

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.
