Trex is rounding out its Elevations Steel Deck Framing System with a new galvanized steel post and joists in a greater range of lengths. Making it possible for contractors to construct a deck substructure made entirely of steel, the new support post offers a preferable solution to pressure-treated lumber posts, which may warp, rot, twist, split, or decay. Designed to cut time and cost, joists are now available in one-foot length increments–ranging from 8 feet through 20 feet.
