Technical Bulletin (TB-IJ-10) Connection of Exterior Deck to IB I-Joist
Beginning in the 2009 edition of IRC (International Residential Code), there is a tension-tie requirement to meet prescriptive DCA 6-09 deck installation requirements for residential exterior decks. International Beams has released a new Technical Bulletin (TB-IJ-10) that provides guidelines on how to make this tension-tie connection to a floor system comprised of IB (International Beams) I-joists.
