FastenMaster’s Icon Screw Joists feature double-threaded screws as the web members of a truss with 3 1/2-inch-wide pressure-treated top and bottom chords. According to the manufacturer, these deck trusses are lighter in weight than traditional joists and dead flat, and the top chord comes pre-coated with a waterproof asphalt coating. A builder can send the deck dimensions to FastenMaster, which will provide the engineering and stamped design drawings, along with the components. For the initial rollout, the joists will be available only in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut. Check with the manufacturer regarding availability in other areas.
