2015 IRC Provision
Alternative Deck Lateral Load Connection
Change Type: Modification

When the prescriptive deck lateral load connection that has appeared in the previous editions of the code is chosen as a design option, the code now requires the two hold- down devices to be within 2 feet of the ends of the deck. A new lateral load connection option prescribes four hold-downs installed below the deck structure.
