HU/HUC/HUCQ/HGUS Glulam Beam and Double-Shear Joist Hangers

HU/HUC/HUCQ/HGUS

See Hanger Options for hanger modifications, which may result in reduced loads.

HU/HUC — Most models have triangle and round holes. To achieve maximum loads, fill both round and triangle holes with common nails.

HGUS — Face-mount hanger used for high-load applications. All hangers in this series have double-shear nailing. This innovation distributes the load through two points on each joist nail for greater strength. It also allows the use of fewer nails, faster installation and the use of common nails for all connections.

HUCQ — Heavy-duty joist hangers that incorporate Simpson Strong-Tie® Strong-Drive® SDS Heavy-Duty Connector screws (included).

Material

  • See tables

Finish

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

Installation

  • Use all specified fasteners; see General Notes.
  • HU/HUC — Can be installed filling round holes only, or filling round and triangle holes for maximum values.
  • HGUS — Nails must be driven at an angle through the joist or truss into the header to achieve the table loads.
  • HUCQ — Install 1/4" x 2 1/2" Strong-Drive SDS Heavy-Duty Connector screws (provided) in all round holes. Lag screws will not achieve the same load.
  • With 3x carrying members, use 16d x 2 1/2" (0.162" dia. x 2 1/2" long) nails into the header and 16d commons into the joist with no load reduction. With 2x carrying members, use 10d x 1 1/2" (0.148" dia. x 1 1/2" long) nails into the header and 10d commons into the joist, and reduce the load to 0.64 of the table value.
  • For installations to masonry or concrete, see HU/HUC/HSUR/L.

Options

  • HU hangers available with the header flanges turned in for 2 5/16" and larger widths, with no load reduction — order HUC hanger.
  • See Hanger Options for sloped and/or skewed HU models, and HUC (concealed flange) models.
  • Concealed flanges are not available for HGUS.
  • HGUS may be skewed only up to a maximum of 45°. See Hanger Options for load reductions.
  • Other sizes available; contact Simpson Strong-Tie.
  • See also HUS series.
  • HUCQ hangers cannot be modified.

Product Notes

  • Projection seat on most models for maximum bearing and section economy.
  • Model configurations may differ from those shown. Some HU models do not have triangle holes. Contact Simpson Strong-Tie for details.

See Hanger Options for hanger modifications, which may result in reduced loads.

    These products are available with additional corrosion protection. Additional products on this page may also be available with this option, check with Simpson Strong-Tie for details.

  1. Uplift loads based on Douglas Fir and have been increased 60% for wind or earthquake loading with no further increase allowed. Reduce where other loads govern.
  2. MIN nailing quantity and load values - fill all round holes;
    MAX nailing quantity and load values - fill all round and triangle holes.
  3. For SPF/HF uplift, use 0.86 x DF/SP uplift load for products requiring nails and 0.72 for products requiring screws.
  4. Nails: 16d = 0.162" dia. x 3 1/2" long, 10d = 0.148" dia. x 3" long.
    See other nail sizes and information.
