Veranda beams double fixing

Double fixing capacity for veranda beams attached to posts as required in NZS 3604:2011 Timber-framed buildings Table 10.8 is as follows:

  • A doubling of the fixing capacity for veranda beams to posts (because the gravity and uplift load carried is greater) is required for:

̵   posts that support a veranda beam joint

̵   the middle post(s) where a veranda beam spans over three or more posts.

Check the manufacturer’s rating of T brackets to ensure they meet the required capacity. Not all brackets can provide sufficient capacity.
