LUC/LU/U/HU/HUC Standard Joist Hangers
LUCZ concealed flange hanger available for 2x6, 2x8, 2x10 and 2x12 lumber. Ideal for end of ledger/ header or post conditions, the LUCZ also provides cleaner lines for exposed conditions such as overhead decks.
See Hanger tables. See Hanger Options for hanger modifications, which may result in reduced loads.
LU—Value engineered for strength and economy. Precision-formed—engineered for installation ease and design value.
U—The standard U hanger provides flexibility of joist to header installation. Versatile fastener selection with tested allowable loads
HU/HUC—Most models have triangle and round holes. To achieve maximum loads, fill both round and triangle holes with common nails. These heavy-duty connectors are designed for schools and other structures requiring additional strength, longevity and safety factors.
Galvanized. Some products available in stainless steel or ZMAX® coating. See Corrosion Information.
- Use all specified fasteners. See General Notes.
- HU/HUC—Can be installed filling round holes only, or filling round and triangle holes for maximum values.
- Joists sloped up to 1/4:12 achieve table loads.
- For masonry or concrete installations, see HU/HUC/HSUR/L.
- HU/HUC hangers can be welded to a steel member. Allowable loads are the lesser of the values in the Hanger tables or the weld capacity – refer to technical bulletin HU/HUC Welded onto Steel Members (T-HUHUC-W).
- View step-by-step installation instructions in the Installer's Pocket Guide (S-C-INSTALL).
- Some products may be installed with the Strong-Drive® SD Connector screw. See model table.
- HU is available with one flange concealed when the W dimension is less than 2 5/16" at 100% of the table load. Order HUC_X hanger.
- Sloped, Skewed and Sloped/Skewed
- For low-cost, code-listed 45° skews, see SUR/SUL and HSUR/HSUL. See also LSU/LSSU connectors.
- U/HU may be skewed to a maximum of 45° and sloped to a maximum of 45°. Hangers 5 1/2" or less in width may be skewed to 67 1/2°. Hangers skewed 51°- 67 1/2° require a square cut.
- For all options, uplift loads are 0.75 of table loads.
- For skewed hangers 3 9/16" and less in width, the allowable download is 100% of the table load. For skewed hangers over 3 9/16" in width the allowable download is 80% of the table load. For slope only, the allowable download is 100% of the table load.
- For combined slopes and skews, the maximum allowable download is 0.80 of the table load.
- For sloped and skewed hangers, the flange on the acute side flange can be concealed at 0.80 of the table load. Contact Simpson Strong-Tie for skew limitations.
- See Hanger Options for additional information.
- HU only—Rough beam sizes available by special order.
- See Face-Mount Hanger Tables for U hanger rough sizes.
- Also see LUS and HUS series.
- Model configurations may differ from those shown. Some HU models do not have triangle holes. Contact Simpson Strong-Tie.
