Help your home's deck design look as clean and open as possible for a professional look with the Fortress Evolution Steel Beam for the Fortress Evolution Steel Deck Framing system. Plan and create a backyard living space that will stand the test of time with the rot, fire, and pest-resistant strength of the Fortress Evolution Steel Beam for your outdoor entertaining area.

Crafted from galvanized and powder-coated steel, the Fortress Evolution Steel Deck Framing Beam is specifically engineered to achieve longer spans between deck supports and footings than standard wood framing to save money and time while keeping your space unobstructed. Also unlike wood, the Fortress Evolution Deck Framing system pieces are consistently uniform and straight for a straightforward deck build.

Fortress Evolution Deck Framing earned a Class A Fire Safety Rating from the National Fire Protection Association. That's the most stringent fire safety rating available for building materials, an important consideration for many local building codes.

The Fortress Evolution Steel Beam is sold individually and offered in a timeless textured Black Sand powder-coat finish. The Fortress Evolution 2 inch x 11 inch Deck Beam is available in 8 foot, 12 foot, and 16 foot lengths to complete your deck design.
