LBV/BA/B/HB I-Joist & Structural Composite Lumber Hangers
The BA hanger is a cost effective hanger targeted at high capacity I-joists and common Structural Composite Lumber applications. A min/max joist nail option gives dual use of this hanger. Minimum values featuring positive angle nailing are targeted at I-joist without web stiffeners requirement and the maximum nailing generates higher loads to support structural composite lumber. The unique two level embossment provides added stiffness to the top flange.
The newly improved LBV, B and HB hangers offer wide versatility for I-joists and structural composite lumber. The enhanced load capacity widens the range of applications for these hangers. The LBV still features positive angle nailing and does not require the use of web stiffeners for standard non modified I-joist installations.
See Top Flange Hanger tables. See Hanger Options for hanger modifications, which may result in reduced loads.
Material: See Top Flange Hanger tables.
Finish: LBV, B, BA and HB—Galvanized; all saddle hangers and all welded sloped and special hangers—Simpson Strong-Tie® gray paint. LBV, B, BA and HB may be ordered hot-dip galvanized; specify HDG.
•Use all specified fasteners. See General Notes and Nailer Table.
•LBV, B, BA and HB may be used for weld-on applications. Weld size to match material thickness (approximate thickness shown). The minimum required weld to the top flanges is 1/8" x 2" fillet weld to each side of each top flange tab for 14 and 12 gauge and 3/16" x 2" fillet weld to each side of each top flange tab for 7 gauge and 10 gauge. Distribute the weld equally on both top flanges. Welding cancels the top and face nailing requirements. Consult the code for special considerations when welding galvanized steel. The area should be well-ventilated, see weld information. Weld on applications produce the maximum allowable down load listed. For uplift loads refer to T-WELDUPLFT.
•LBV hangers do not require the use of web stiffeners for
non-sloped or non-skewed applications.
•B and HB hangers require the use of web stiffeners. BA MIN nailing does not require web stiffeners. BA MAX nailing requires the use of web stiffeners.
•Ledgers must be evaluated for each application separately. Check TF dimension, nail length and nail location on ledger.
•Refer to T-SLOPEJST for information regarding load reductions on selected hangers which can be used without modification to support joists which have shallow slopes (≤3/4:12).
•LBV, B and HB
•Other widths are available; specify W dimension (the minimum W dimension is 1 9/16").
•The coating on special B hangers will depend on the manufacturing process used. Check with your Simpson Strong-Tie representative for details.Hot-dipped galvanized available: specify HDG.
•Refer to technical bulletin T-BSERIES for the complete line of LBV, BA, B and HB hangers, including models not shown here, their available modification combinations and their associated reduction factors.
•Modified hangers have reduced loads, see Hanger Options.
