What is a deck tension tie?
Beside this, what is a tension tie?
Tension ties are a time-saving solution for resisting tension loads in vertical and horizontal applications. Fastened with nails, they are simpler and faster to install than traditional holdowns.
Secondly, what are hurricane ties? A hurricane tie is used to help make a structure (specifically wooden structures) more resistant to high winds (such as in hurricanes), resisting uplift, racking, overturning, and sliding.
Also question is, what is a lateral load connection?
The lateral-load connection from Simpson Strong-Tie consists of two DTT2Z Deck Tension Ties—one screwed to the deck joist, the other to the house joist. Access is drilled through the ledger connection to allow passage of a rigid threaded rod that connects the two ties.
What is lateral bracing on a deck?
LATERAL BRACING OF DECK TO HOUSE Deck ledgers are engineered to resist “shear” forces, essentially keeping the deck from falling vertically. However, decks are also supposed to be braced to resist lateral forces trying to pull the deck away from the house.
