Deck Support

Deck support angles may be added to SidePlate® connections for edge and end bearing as needed (see Figure F1). Deck support angles may be added to the face of the side plate on Narrow connections. For Standard connections, the angle {G} at the top of the side plate may be extended to provide deck support. As shown in Figure F1, to allow for proper spreading of the side plates, please consult construction guidelines for notch placement. Note that in SidePlate PLUS connections, the deck support angles may not be welded within the protected zone.
