Build a backyard deck area that will stand strong for generations to come with the incredible strength of Fortress Evolutions Steel Deck Joists. Crafted from 16 gauge steel and coated with a protective and polished textured Black Sand finish, Fortress Evolution Joists attach to a ledger board and run outward from your home to deliver a solid deck frame impervious to rot, warp, insects, and weather damage. Able to accommodate any type of deck material including composite decking, PVC, aluminum, wood deck tiles, hardwoods, and more; Fortress Evolution Steel Deck Joists provide long-lasting peace of mind while keeping costs low.

Fortress Evolution Steel Deck Framing is a brilliant metal deck framing system designed by deck builders for deck builders of all skill levels.
