The IUS is a hybrid hanger that incorporates the advantages of the face-mount and top-mount hanger. Installation is fast with the Strong-Grip™ seat, easy-to-reach face nails and self-jigging locator tabs.
The MIU series hangers are designed for commercial and high-load I-joist applications without requiring web stiffeners. The MIU features positive-angle nailing (PAN), which minimizes splitting of the flanges while permitting time-saving nailing from a better angle.
These hangers cannot be modified. However, these models will normally accommodate a skew of up to 5°. For sloped joists up to 1/4:12 there is no reduction; between 1/4:12 and up to 1/2:12, tests show a 10% reduction in ultimate hanger strength. Local crushing of the bottom flange or excessive deflection may be limiting; check with joist manufacturer for specific limitations on bearing of this type.
