The S/BA is a cost-effective alternative to heavier, special-order hangers. It is value engineered and tested to achieve higher allowable loads and increased performance. It may be fastened with screws or powder-actuated fasteners or welded to the header, providing more design options and greater versatility.
S/LBV and S/B top-flange hangers are manufactured with precision forming and quality control, providing dimensional accuracy and helping to ensure proper bearing area and connection.
S/LBV, S/B, and S/BA may be used for weld-on applications; a minimum of 1/8" x 2" fillet weld on each top flange is required. Distribute the weld equally on both top flanges. Consult the code for special consideration when welding galvanized steel. Uplift loads do not apply.
S/BA may be installed using PDPAT-62KP (0.157" x 5/8") powderactuated fasteners. Steel headers with thicknesses between 1/4" and 3/4" having minimum Fy — 36 ksi. A Red (level 5) or Purple (level 6) powder load may be required to achieve specified penetration (p).
S/LBV and S/B series (max. width = 5 1/2") can be skewed to a maximum of 45°
