Create a solid and immovable deck foundation from the very beginning with the Fortress Evolution Steel Deck Framing Support Post. The Fortress Support Post is the ideal solution for anchoring Fortress Evolution Steel Deck Framing to your deck footings or concrete anchors.

Fortress’s steel framing system provides enduring strength against the elements. Unlike standard lumber or wood posts, Fortress metal framing provides enduring strength against the elements with a uniform and consistent deck support that won’t rot or warp over time.

A sleek, black finish provides a sophisticated look to match the strength and reliability of your steel deck support post.

At the bottom, connect your Post to the Post-to-Pier Bracket, and then to the ground, patio, or concrete surface. At the top, connect your post to the Evolution Beam-To-Post Bracket, and then to your structural beams. Give our team a call at 1-888-824-5316 anytime and we’d be happy to help you plan your deck framing and get you all the pieces you need.

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 Post measures 3-1/2 inches square. Fortress Evolution Steel Deck Framing Support Posts are sold individually and are offered in 10 foot heights.
