THAI I-Joist and Structural Composite Lumber Hanger

THAI

Field Skewable/Slopable I-Joist Hangers

This product's information may differ depending on the category of use. You are currently viewing details related to Field Skewable/Slopable I-Joist Hangers. You can also view product information related to the category: Top-Flange Hangers for I-Joists

Designed for I-joists, the THAI has extra long straps and can be field-formed to give height adjustability and top-flange hanger convenience. Positive-angle nailing helps eliminate splitting of the I-joist's bottom flange.

Material

  • THAI-2 — 14 gauge; all others — 18 gauge

Finish

  • Galvanized

Installation

  • Factory-order the THAI-2 for hanger width needed. See table for allowable widths.
  • Use all specified fasteners. Verify that the header can take the fasteners specified in the table.
  • Web stiffeners are required for all I-joists used with these hangers.
  • When a total of 20 face nails are used in THAI straps, or 30 face nails are used in THAI-2 straps, the maximum load-carrying capacity is achieved.
  • Reduce load given by allowable nail shear capacity for each nail less than maximum.
  • A minimum nailing configuration is shown for top nailing installations. The strap must be field-formed over the top of the header by a minimum of 2 1/2".
  • Uplift — Lowest face nails must be filled to achieve uplift loads.

Dimensions

Dimensions
  1. The W dimension should be ordered at 1/16" to 1/8" greater than the joist width.

Load Tables

  1. Uplift loads are based on DF/SP lumber and have been increased for wind or earthquake loading with no further increase allowed. Reduce where other loads govern. For SPF/HF use 0.86 x DF/SP uplift load.
  2. The minimum header depth to achieve the maximum nail configuration is 16".
  3. For the THAI3522 supporting a 2 1/4" joist, the download shall be the lesser of the table load or 1,400 lb.
  4. NAILS: 10d = 0.148" dia. x 3" long, 10d x 1 1/2" = 0.148" dia. x 1 1/2" long.
