LJS Double-Shear Joist Hanger

LJS

This product is only available in Canada

The LJS is a common truss hanger that incorporates our patented double-shear nailing — an innovation that distributes the load through two points on each joist nail for greater strength. This allows the use of fewer nails, faster installation and the use of common nails for all connections. (Do not bend or remove tabs.)

Material

  • 18 gauge

Finish

  • Galvanized

Installation

  • Use all specified fasteners; see General Notes
  • Nails must be driven at an angle through the joist or truss into the header to achieve the tabulated resistances
  • Where 16d commons are specified, 10d commons may be used at 0.83 of the tabulated factored resistance
  • Not designed for welded or nailer applications
  • With single-ply 2x carrying members, use 10d x 1 1/2" nails into the header and 10d commons into the joist, and reduce the resistance to 0.64 of the table value where 16d nails are specified

Options

  • LJS hangers cannot be modified

Load Tables

  1. Factored uplift resistances have been increased 15% for wind or earthquake loading; no further increase is allowed.
  2. Designer must ensure that hanger is compatible with truss when reduced heel height is used.
  3. de is the distance from the bearing seat to the top joist nail.
  4. Resistances shown require a minimum 2-ply girder truss. For fastening to single-ply truss see installation notes.
  5. Nails: 16d = 0.162" dia. x 3 1/2" long, 10d = 0.148" dia. x 3" long, 10d x 1 1/2" = 0.148" dia. x 1 1/2" long. See other nail sizes and information.
