simpson strong-tie zmax 7.03 in. 31 h x 3.25 in. 31 w 14 ga. steel deck tension tie - Description

The Simpson Strong-Tie DTT2Z ZMax® Tension Tie 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 holdown for light-duty shearwalls and braced wall panel applications. The DTT2Z fastens easily to a single 2x joist or stud using Simpson Strong-Tie® Strong-Drive® SDS screws (included) and accepts a 1/2" machine bolt or anchor bolt.The DTT2 is ideal for two critical deck connections: Guardrail-Post Connection Ties the guardrail post into deck framing Stronger and safer than nails, lag screws or bolts Meets provisions set in the International Residential Code® (IRC) for guardrail reinforcement (Table R301.5) Single post-to-deck connection tested for the concentrated load specified in ICC-ES acceptance criteria for Handrails and Guards (AC273)Lateral-Load Connection Ties the deck into the house for a stronger, safer ledger connection Helps prevent a common type of deck failure Meets provisions set by the 2009 International Residential Code® (IRC) for lateral deck-to-house connections (R502.2.2.3) Includes: 8 SDS25112 Screws Finish: ZMax® coating Material: 14 Gauge Anchor Bolt/Clearance: 1/2"/13/16" Height: 6-15/16" Width (Top): 3-1/4" Width (Base): 1-5/8" DTT2Z Information and Installation InstructionsZMax® Galvanized Coating Information ZMax® Coating is a thicker coating (galvanized per ASTM A653 with a G185 coating) than the standard hot-dip galvanized coating (galvanized per ASTM A653 with a G90 coating). This thicker coating is available on select Simpson Strong-Tie connectors. Due to this increased galvanized thickness these connectors would be expected to have a longer service life than standard galvanized connectors.
