cable x-bracing

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I would like to use aircraft cable for vertical cross bracing  to take seismic loads at the outermost edge of a residential deck.
 
The deck is supported at this edge by a 6x12 beam carried by 6x6 posts. The x-bracing would of course occur between the 6x6 posts.
 
Any comments on how the 97 code will impact this design?
