HU68TF Top Flange Joist Hanger
See dimensions, material and loads in tables.
HUSTF has the double-shear nailing advantage — distributing the joist load through two points on each nail for greater strength.
Use all specified fasteners; see General Notes
Not acceptable for nailer or welded applications; see WP, HWP, HWPH and BA hangers
HUTF — the minimum header or ledger size that can be used with this hanger is 3 1/2"
HUSTF — with 3x carrying members, use 0.162 x 2 1/2" nails into the header and 0.162 x 3 1/2" nails into the joist
See General Notes for Hanger Options.
HUTF rough beam sizes are available by special order.
HUSTF cannot be modified.
Sloped and/or Skewed Seat -
HUTF can be skewed to a maximum of 45¡ë or sloped to a maximum of 45¡ë. HUTF can be skewed and sloped down only, provided W ≥ 2 3/8". No skew with slope up options available.
For skews greater than 15¡ë, uplift loads are 0.75 of the table loads. Hangers with a skew greater than 15¡ë may have all the joist nailing on the outside angle.
For sloped and skewed combinations, the allowable loads are 0.70 of the table loads.
For sloped-down-only hangers, allowable load is 0.78 of the table load.
Concealed Flange -
HUTF is available with one A flange concealed at 0.85 of the catalog table load.
HUTF is available with both flanges concealed provided the W dimension is 2 9/16" or greater, at 0.85 of the table load. Specify HUCTF for both flanges concealed. No skew options available.
