I'm building a deck using Lumberlok solution for balustrade and joist fixing as shown here:
The problem is that the deck corner is not 90 degrees but closer to 45:
As you can see, we can't use 90 degree corner brackets and there are no variable angle / skewed joist hangers sold in NZ (Joist size is 140x45)
We are applying for building consent so we have to show that our solution complies with NZS for horizontal load
of 0.75 kN/m on handrail etc.
Can it be solved with simple blocking or do I need to get structural engineer involved? Ideas? Thanks!
