Q: Why are the brackets so heavy?
A: In order to obtain a 4’-0” on center spacing DeckStruc™ was designed for a 2,000 lb. load per bracket. This is also why DeckStruc™ is designed to transfer load directly into the floor diaphragm, as the house band board would not have the ability to sustain such high loads.
Q: Will the brackets rust?
A: Each bracket is made of heavy gauge steel painted with a high quality rust inhibitor. DeckStruc™ is materially no different than a steel brick lintel.
A: DeckStruc™ brackets are adjustable and can be adjusted from 10 ¼” to 17 1/4” for various spacing of house joists.
Q: What is included with the purchase of each bracket?
A: Each DeckStruc™ bracket purchase includes the required lag bolts and through bolts per bracket plus 4 steel lateral bracing angles per order.
