LUS/HUS Double Shear Joist Hangers
See Hanger tables. See Hanger Options for hanger modifications, which may result in reduced loads.
All hangers in this series have double-shear nailing. This innovation distributes the load through two points on each joist nail for greater strength. It also allows the use of fewer nails, faster installation, and the use of standard nails for all connections. (Do not bend or remove tabs.)
Material: See tables.
Finish: Galvanized. Some products available in stainless steel or ZMAX® coating; see Corrosion Information.
•Use all specified fasteners. See General Notes.
•Nails must be driven at an angle through the joist or truss into the header to achieve the table loads.
•Not designed for welded or nailer applications.
•16d sinkers (0.148" dia. x 3 1/4" long) may be used where 10d commons are specified with no reduction in load. Where 16d commons are specified, 10d commons or 16d sinkers (0.148" dia. x 3 1/4" long) may be used at 0.85 of the table load.
•With 3x carrying members, use 16d x 2 1/2" nails into the header and 16d commons into the joist with no load reduction.
•With 2x carrying members, use 10d x 1 1/2" nails into the header and 10d commons into the joist, reduce the load to 0.64 of the table value.
•Use stainless steel (SS) nails with stainlesss-steel (SS) hangers.
