DeckLok, the patented lateral anchor system from Screw Products, Inc., announces it recently received an updated ESR-2114 evaluation from ICC Evaluation Service (ICC-ES) verifying the bracket’s continued compliance with code requirements. This updated evaluation was based on an examination of Screw Products, Inc. test reports, calculations, quality control methods and related product information. Screw Products, Inc. says it can now reference the evaluation report to ensure building officials and the building industry that the product meets I-Code requirements. The DeckLok lateral anchor system is designed to strengthen the vulnerable connections between deck components by adding a bolted attachment at critical structural locations, adds the company. The DeckLok Advanced Lateral Anchor System creates stronger deck connections by redirecting the force of the load from 'pullout' to a connection in 'shear' at the deck floor joist. Building officials, architects, contractors, specifiers, designers and others commonly utilize ICC-ES Evaluation Reports to provide a basis for using or approving DeckLok in construction projects under IRC and IBC 2006, 2009 and 2012 Safety Code requirements, says the company. This includes ensuring both lateral pullout and rail post stability, while using current deck construction techniques and designs adds Screw Products.
