THGWV Truss Hanger for Girders, Wraparound Design, Bolted


On This Page

The THGWV is an extra-high-capacity, bolted hanger designed for installing multi-ply girder trusses. This welded hanger attaches to a vertical web and features a unique wraparound shape that supports higher loads with a double-shear design.

Key Features

  • Two bucket heights are available to accommodate a range of SCL sizes


  • 3 gauge


  • Simpson Strong-Tie gray paint


  • Use all specified fasteners; see General Notes
  • All multiple members must be fastened together to act as a single unit
  • Maximum 11 7/8" bottom chord in the carrying member to allow for the minimum bolt end distance
  • Bolts must be installed symmetrically when fewer than the maximum number of bolts are used on the backplate
  • Girders must have adequate lateral bracing to prevent excessive displacement due to secondary torsional stresses (refer to ANSI/TPI 1-2014 Section
  • Carrying member must be a minimum two-ply girder truss to allow for required minimum screw penetration

Load Tables

  1. Allowable loads are based on a SCL (LVL, PSL, or LSL) carried member with an allowable F'c ⊥ of 750 psi and equivalent Specific Gravity of 0.50 or higher.
  2. Uplift loads have been increased for earthquake or wind loading with no further increase allowed. Reduce where other loads govern.
  3. A three-ply carrying member is required for the THGWV5.50 /9 and THGWV5.50 /11; a four-ply carrying member is required for the THGWV7.25 /9 and THGWV7.25 /11.
  4. Strong-Drive® SDS Heavy-Duty Connector screws require a minimum two-ply (3") carrying member.
  5. Bolts and Strong-Drive® SDS Heavy-Duty Connector screws (not included) may be installed through metal truss connector plates as approved by the truss designer, provided the requirements of ANSI/TPI 1-2014, Sections and 8.9.2 are met.
  6. Wind (160) is a download rating.
