Simpson Strong-Tie. Focusing on deck safety through strong guardrail-post and deck-to-house connections, the maker introduces the DTT2Z deck tension tie. The component connects the railing post back to the deck framing, not just to the rim joist, creating code-compliant guardrail reinforcement. The DTT2Z also can tie the deck to the house for a stronger ledger connection. 800.999.5099. www.strongtie.com/deckcenter.
