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 HHUS is designed for applications where higher loads are needed. This heavy-capacity hanger features double-shear nailing that distributes the load through two points on each joist nail for greater strength. This feature allows for fewer nails, faster installation and the use of all common nails for the same connection.

Key Features

  • Can be installed after the beam is secured in place
  • Value-engineered hanger designed to carry high loads at an economical price
  • HHUS-series hangers are tested, load rated and code compliant

Material

  • 14 gauge

Finish

  • Galvanized. Some products available in HDG or ZMAX® coating. See Corrosion Information.

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.

HHUS — Sloped and/or Skewed Seat

  • HHUS hangers can be skewed to a maximum of 45° and/or sloped to a maximum of 45°
  • For skew only, maximum allowable download is 0.85 of the table load
  • For sloped only or sloped and skewed hangers, the maximum allowable download is 0.65 of the table load
  • Uplift loads for sloped/skewed conditions are 0.72 of the table load, not to exceed 2,475 lb.
  • The joist must be bevel-cut to allow for double shear nailing
