HUSC and HUCQ Concealed Flange Face
Mount Hangers for Strong-Wall® Shearwall
When attaching door and window headers to the Wood Strong-Wall®, only the HUSC46 or HUCQ410 may be used. The fastening pattern to the
carrying member is grouped in toward the center of the hanger, thereby allowing installation in end conditions.
- Nailing into the end grain of the wall’s top plate to install the HUSC results in allowable loads that are 0.67 of the table load.
- Fastening into the end grain of the wall’s top plate to install the HUCQ is not allowed.
- When installing the HUCQ, omit the two Simpson Strong-Tie® Strong-Drive® screws (SDS) closest to the point where the Wood Strong-Wall sheathing meets
the post (see drawing below). Also, maintain a minimum end distance of 2" from the top of the Wood Strong-Wall post.
