Simple Connections Simplified


SKU: WOD-SCS Categories: ,


This webinar will explore the best connections for all things joist and deck, with an eye towards keeping them simple! First for joists and then for deck, the requirements and options for attachment to the supports will be covered. Then the discussion will involve all of the stuff that ends up being attached to the joists and deck – both the structural and trade elements that may be attached and the various methods of making those connections.

This in-depth webinar is sponsored by the Steel Joist Institute (SJI) and participation will earn you 1.5 PDHs.
