Face-Mount Hangers for Plated Truss

This product's information may differ depending on the category of use. You are currently viewing details related to Face-Mount Hangers for Plated Truss. You can also view product information related to the categories of: Face-Mount Hangers for Solid Sawn Lumber, Face-Mount Hangers for Engineered Wood

The HGUS is an extra-heavy-capacity hanger for applications requiring girder support. This girder hanger features double-shear nailing that distributes the load through two points on each joist nail for greater strength. Value-engineered, the HGUS is designed to carry high loads for an economical price.

Key Features

  • Can be installed after the beam is secured in place
  • HGUS-series hangers are tested, load rated and code compliant

Material

  • 12 ga.

Finish

  • Galvanized

Installation

  • Use all specified fasteners; see General Notes.
  • Joist 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.
  • Do not use double-shear hangers with I-joists.
  • With 3x carrying members: when 0.162" x 3 1/2" nails are specified, use 0.162" x 2 1/2" nails into the header and 0.162" x 3 1/2" nails into the joist with no load reduction. When 0.148" x 3" nails are specified, use 0.148" x 2 1/2" nails into the header and 0.148" x 3" nails into the joist with no load reduction.
  • With 2x carrying members: when 0.162" x 3 1/2" nails are specified, use 0.148" x 1 1/2" nails into the header and 0.148" x 3" nails into the joist and reduce the load to 0.64 of the table values. When 0.148" x 3" nails are specified, use 0.148" x 1 1/2" nails into the header and 0.148" x 3" nails into the joist and reduce the load to 0.77 of the table values. See Fastener Design Information.

  1. Uplift loads have been increased for earthquake or wind loading with no further increase allowed. Reduce where other loads govern.
  2. Wind (160) is a download rating.
  3. Minimum heel height shown is required to achieve full table loads. For less than minimum heel height, see technical bulletin T-C-REDHEEL.
  4. Truss chord cross-grain tension may limit allowable loads in accordance with ANSI/TPI 1-2014. Simpson Strong-Tie® Connector Selector™ software includes the evaluation of cross-grain tension in its hanger allowable loads. For additional information, contact Simpson Strong-Tie.
  5. Loads shown are based on a two-ply 2x carrying member minimum for nailed hangers. With 3x carrying members: when 0.162" x 3 1/2" nails are specified, use 0.162" x 2 1/2" nails into the header and 0.162" x 3 1/2" nails into the joist with no load reduction. When 0.148" x 3" nails are specified, use 0.148" x 2 1/2" nails into the header and 0.148" x 3" nails into the joist with no load reduction. With 2x carrying members: when 0.162" x 3 1/2" nails are specified, use 0.148" x 1 1/2" nails into the header and 0.148" x 3" nails into the joist and reduce the load to 0.64 of the table values. When 0.148" x 3" nails are specified, use 0.148" x 1 1/2" nails into the header and 0.148" x 3" nails into the joist and reduce the load to 0.77 of the table values.
  6. Fasteners: Nail dimensions in the table are listed diameter by length. For additional information, see Fastener Types and Sizes Specified for Simpson Strong-Tie Connectors.
