LUS/HUS/HHUS/HGUS Double-Shear Face-Mount Joist Hangers

LUS/HUS/HHUS/HGUS

On This Page

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 standard nails for all connections. (Do not bend or remove tabs.)

Material

  • See tables

Finish

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

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 table loads.
  • Not designed for welded or nailer applications.
  • 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 carrying members, use 0.162" x 2 1/2" nails into the header and 0.162" x 3 1/2" nails into the joist with no load reduction.
  • With 2x carrying members, use 0.148" x 1 1/2" nails into the header and 0.148" x 3" nails into the joist, reduce the load to 0.64 of the table value.

Options

  • LUS/HUS hangers cannot be modified
  • See load tables below for HHUS/HGUS modifications

Load Tables

See Face Mount Hanger tables.

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

HGUS — Skewed Seat

  • HGUS hangers can be skewed only to a maximum of 45°. Allowable loads are:
    HGUS Seat Width Joist Down Load Uplift
    W < 2" Square cut 0.62 of table load 0.46 of table load
    W < 2" Bevel cut 0.72 of table load 0.46 of table load
    2" < W < 6" Bevel cut 0.85 of table load 0.41 of table load
    2" < W < 6" Square cut 0.46 of table load 0.41 of table load
    W > 6" Bevel cut 0.85 of table load 0.41 of table load
