Fence Section On A Deck


Have a customer looking to use a fence section on one part of a deck for privacy. Other than a couple of DDT's not sure how I can combat wind and leverage.

Anyone ever do it?

Yep with privacy glass.

Those panels are 63" if I remember right.

Add a couple posts into the design or if it's already existing cut out/remove the deck board(s) drop you a couple posts - block and fasten, replace deck boards

They drop down and bolt to the beam as well as the rim.

You can also bring your rail posts all the way down to a footing and Simpson bracket if you really need the strength to counter leverage.

That would be the way if the deck is a few feet of the ground. This guy's deck is second story. Unless I drop it down a couple of feet below the rim joist and bracket back to the underside of the deck. I can hide it with lattice maybe.

Re: Fence Section On A Deck


Extra blocking should be able to pick up a lot of load. If it's on a end joist then block back 2-3 more joist bays in a line and that's a crazy amount of strength. Mark has posted some cool methods using threaded rod with nuts and washers if you want a cleaner look on the underside. For the ribbon joist, header, whatever you call it, full blocking and Simpson tension ties should be plenty of strength.

Your probably right. Im think a about 7:1 is a lot of bad leverage but in the end its more about the shear of the post which is plenty.

Re: Fence Section On A Deck


Here's a detail explaining what I mean by bolting your rail posts to your support beam. It picks up a lot of strength

Re: Fence Section On A Deck


Ethan mentioned the threaded rod technique, which I think works well.

I would carry the post down as far as you can and bolt through to whatever you can.

Re: Fence Section On A Deck


I think all the strength comes from the 2x6 laid flat, on the beam and nailed to the bottom of the 2x12 rim board

I use louvered walls for blocking views. Here's an example.
