The new DG fire wall hangers easily install on a two-hour wood stud fire wall (e.g. Type III construction) during framing. These top-flange hangers feature space to allow two layers of 5/8" gypsum wall board (drywall) to be slipped into place after the framing is complete. The DG/DGH/DGB fire-rated wall hangers have been tested according to ASTM E814 and received F (Flame) and T (temperature) ratings for use on one or both sides of the wall in Intertek Design No. SST/WPCF 120-01. This rating verifies that the DG/DGH/DGB hangers do not reduce the two-hour, fire wall assembly rating. The rating applies to both 2x4 and 2x6 walls.

All models of the DGH hanger may be ordered with a skew angle of up to 45° or with the top flange offset left or right.

  1. Uplift loads have been increased for wind or seismic loading with no further increase allowed. Reduce where other loads govern.
  2. Allowable loads are for 2x4 minimum stud wall. Back-to-back installations require a minimum 2x6 wall. Wall design by Designer.
  3. Loads are based on a joist spacing of 16" o.c. or greater. Allowable loads for joists spaced less than 16" o.c. shall be reduced proportionally.
  4. DGB installation requires a minimum (2) 2x4 stud or post in the wall at hanger location. Post design by Designer.
  5. Nails: 10d = 0.148" dia. x 3" long, 10d x 1 1/2" = 0.148" dia. x 1 1/2" long.
