Give your deck space an increased touch of strength with the Fortress Evolution Steel Drop Beam Blocking. A drop beam is a piece of deck framing that is installed underneath and perpendicular to the deck joists for increased strength on large or unique deck designs. The Fortress Evolution Steel Framing Drop Beam Blocking piece anchors along a dropped beam to minimize movement between joists and deliver a firm hold. Crafted from galvanized and powder-coated steel, the Fortress Evolution Steel Blocking piece keeps your under deck area looking clean and polished while adding extra support to your outdoor living space!

The Fortress Evolution Steel Drop Beam Blocking is sold individually in a sleek textured Black Sand finish. Choose between the standard 12 inch on-center or 16 inch on-center joist spacing design to fit your Fortress Framing project.
