MUS26 Double Shear Joist Hanger
The double-shear hanger series, ranging from the light-capacity LUS hangers to the highest-capacity HGUS hangers, feature innovative double-shear nailing that distributes the load through two points on each joist nail for greater strength. This allows for fewer nails, faster installation and the use of all common nails for the same connection.
For medium-load truss applications, the MUS offers a lower-cost alternative and easier installation than the HUS or THA hangers, while providing greater load capacity and bearing than the LUS.
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
LUS and MUS hangers cannot be modified
Concealed flanges are not available for HGUS and HHUS
Other sizes available; consult your Simpson Strong-Tie representative
