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.
  • 0.148" x 3 1/4" nails may be used where 0.148" x 3" nails are specified, with no reduction in load. Where 0.162" x 3 1/2" nails are specified, 0.148" x 3" or 0.148" x 3 1/4" nails may be used at 0.85 of the table load.
  • With 3x header members, use 0.162" x 2 1/2" (Simpson Strong-Tie® N16) nails in the header and 0.162" x 3 1/2" nails in the joist with no load reduction. With 2x header members, use 0.148" x 1 1/2" nails in the header and 0.148" x 3" nails in the joist, and reduce the load to 0.64 of the table value.

  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, use 0.162" x 2 1/2" nails in the header and 0.162" x 3 1/2" in the joist, with no load reduction. With single 2x carrying members, use 0.148" x 1 1/2" nails in the header and 0.148" x 3" in the joist, and reduce the load to 0.64 of the table value.
  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.
