SPAX® PowerLags are Job-Site Approved!
Hey Professionals - if you were concerned about using SPAX® 5/16” x 4” or 5” HCR PowerLags (hex OR washer head) fear not, we're code approved!
We now have the TER report that shows our lags are a sufficient replacement for the fasteners called out in the table R507.9.1.3(1) of the 2018 IRC. This technical bulletin is a SPAX® summary of the official DrJ TER No. 1711-01 test report and you may find it helpful to more easily understand how to properly use our lags during the ledger installation process.
Using SPAX® PowerLags in your ledger installations proves to be a superior (and less expensive) solution on your job site! To download the latest Deck Ledger Technical Bulletin and learn all the details, click here.
