HGUS212-4 Girder Hanger
HUS/HHUS/HGUS Double Shear SCL Hangers
See Face Mount Hanger tables. See Hanger Options HHUS, HGUS, and HUS for hanger modifications, which may result in reduced loads.
These hangers are designed for applications where higher loads are needed (also see HUC and HUCQ).
All hangers in this series have double-shear nailing. This patented 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 common nails for all connections. (Do not bend or remove tabs)
Material: See Face Mount Hanger tables.
Finish: Galvanized. Some products available in stainless steel or ZMAX® coating; see Corrosion Information.
•Use all specified fasteners. See General Notes.
•Do not use double-shear hangers with I-joists.
•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" (Simpson Strong-Tie® N16) 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, and reduce the load to 0.64 of the table value.
•HUS hangers available with the header flanges turned in for 3 1/2" wide joist only, with no load reduction. See HUSC Concealed Flange illustration.
•Concealed flanges are not available for HGUS, HUS1.81/10 and HHUS.
•See Hanger Options for sloped and/or skewed HHUS and HGUS models.
•Other sizes available; contact Simpson Strong-Tie for details.
•Joining multiple plies.
