Simpson LSCZ Adjustable Stair-Stringer Connector- Zmax Finish

SKU: LSCZ
$1.89

The LSCZ adjustable stair-stringer connector offers a versatile, concealed connection between the stair stringer and the carrying header or rim joist while replacing costly framing. Field slopeable to all common stair stringer pitches, the LSCZ connector is suitable for either solid or notched stringers. The Strong-Tie LSCZ adjustable stringer connector features a G185 ZMAX galvanized finish for added corrosion resistance and requires the use of hot-dip galvanized fasteners which meet the specifications of ASTM A153.


Features:
  • Replaces additional framing and toe-nailing
  • Suitable for most installations on 2x10 or 2x12 header/rim joist
  • May be installed flush with the top of the carrying member or lower on the face
  • Interchangeable for left or right applications
  • LSCZ features a ZMAX® coating for additional corrosion protection. Suitable for interior and some exterior applications.

Installation:
  • Use all specified fasteners.
  • Before fastening, position the stair stringer with the LSC on the carrying member to verify where the bend should be located.
  • Tabs on the LSC must be positioned to the inside of the stairs.
  • The fastener that is installed into the bottom edge of the stringer must go into the second-to-last hole.
  • When installed on 1 5/16" LVL or a 1 1/4" LSL stringer, additional items that will not affect the structural performance of the LSC, but should be considered, include the following:
    • LSC stringer flange will protrude 1/4" from face of stringer. As such, it is recommended the LSC be installed with the tabs positioned to the outside of the stringer.
    • 1-1/2" fasteners installed into 1-1/4" LSL stringer will protrude from the opposite side.

NOTE: The correct fasteners installed in the correct position must be used to achieve published load values
