LGUM Light Face-Mount Girder and Beam Hanger for Concrete and Masonry
On This Page
The LGUM is designed for hanging girder trusses, solid sawn and EWP onto concrete or masonry. This face-mount hanger installs into the wood member with Strong-Drive® SDS Heavy-Duty Connector screws and into the masonry with Titen HD® anchors. The LGUM is available in skews up to 45°.
SDS screws and Titen HD anchors included
LGUM-series hangers are tested, load rated and code compliant
Uplift loads have been increased for earthquake or wind loading with no further increase allowed
Galvanized. Some products available in stainless steel; see Corrosion Information.
Use all specified fasteners (included).
Attach hanger to a concrete or grout-filled CMU wall using Titen HD anchors. Note the following: — Drill holes using drill bits equal in diameter to the specified Titen HD anchor. — Holes shall be drilled 1/2" deeper than the specified Titen HD length (e.g., 4 1/2" for a 4"-long Titen HD anchor). — Caution: Oversized holes in the base material will reduce or eliminate the mechanical interlock of the threads with the base material and will reduce the anchor's load capacity.
The carbon-steel Titen HD is not recommended for exposed exterior applications.
Provide moisture barrier between beam and wall per jurisdictional requirements.

Available in skews up to 45°. See table for reduced loads.
SDS screws may be installed through metal truss plates as approved by the truss designer, provided the requirements of ANSI/TPI 1-2014, Sections 126.96.36.199 and 8.9.2 are met (predrilling required through the plate using a 5/32" bit maximum).
