LSU/LSSU Adjustable Light Slopeable / Skewable U Hangers

LSU/LSSU

The LSU and LSSU series of hangers may be sloped and skewed in the field, offering a versatile solution for attaching joists and rafters. These hangers may be sloped up or down and skewed left or right, up to 45°.

Material

  • See table

Finish

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

Installation

  • Use all specified fasteners; see General Notes.
  • Attach the sloped joist at both ends so that the horizontal force developed by the slope is fully supported by the supporting members.
  • LSU and LSSU may be installed at an interior corner intersection with reduced loads. Refer to engineering letter LSU/LSSU Corner Installation (L-C-LSUCORNER) for installation and allowable loads.
  • For additional information, see the installation video on this product in the online image gallery.

    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. Roof loads are 125% of floor loads unless limited by other criteria.
  2. Uplift loads include an increase for wind or earthquake loading with no further increase allowed; reduce when other loads govern.
  3. 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.
  4. For skewed LSSU hangers, the inner most face fasteners on the acute angle side are not installed.
  5. Do not substitute 10dx1 1/2" nails for face nails on slope and skew combinations or skewed only LSU and LSSU.
  6. For LSSU installations using the Strong-Drive® SD Connector screw, reference engineering letter L-C-SLSKHGRSD.
  7. NAILS: 16d = 0.162" dia. x 3 1/2" long, 10d = 0.148" dia. x 3" long, 10dx1 1/2 = 0.148" dia. x 1 1/2" long.
