Building a deck? Use DeckLok® – THE Deck Bracket System for Deck Posts

Stay Connected With A Lateral Anchor

DeckLok® provides a bolted connection between the guard railing post and the floor joists of the deck.

Note: IBC Code requires the guard rail post to resist a force of 500lbs at a point 36" above the surface of the deck. DeckLok does this! Mounting the DeckLok lateral anchors directly to the base of the rail post, or to the deck board, creates a solid mounting surface while still using traditional construction techniques. Independent laboratory testing confirms that the DeckLok System increases guard rail lateral load capacity by 4 times the current capacity. Best of all, the versatility of the DeckLok System allows the lateral anchors to be incorporated into the railing design without affecting the rail post spacing desired by the designer or installer. With DeckLok, the rail post spacing determines the placement of the lateral anchor, not the other way around!
