LGUM/HGUM High-Capacity Beam/Girder Hangers for Concrete and GFCMU

LGUM/HGUM

Masonry Hangers for Plated Truss

This product's information may differ depending on the category of use. You are currently viewing details related to Masonry Hangers for Plated Truss. You can also view product information related to the category: Face-Mount Masonry Hangers

High-capacity beam or girder hangers for concrete or masonry applications. Installation is made easier using Simpson Strong-Tie® Strong-Drive® SDS Heavy-Duty Connector screws (provided) into the wood member and Titen HD® anchors (provided) into the masonry.

Material

  • See table

Finish

  • Galvanized

Installation

  • 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 (i.e. 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.
  • Titen HD is not recommended for exposed exterior applications.
  • Provide moisture barrier between beam and wall per jurisdictional requirements.

Options

  • For HGUM only — Other seat widths available. Order as "X" version.
  • HGUM available with one flange concealed. See tables for reduced load at end of wall and outside corner.
  • LGUM/HGUM available in skews up to 45°. See Hanger Options.

Load Tables

  1. Uplift loads have been increased for wind or earthquake loading with no further increase allowed; reduce when other loads govern.
  2. HGUM uplift loads for concrete applications are 5,840 lbs. with a 4" min. distance to top of wall and 6,960 lbs. with a 15" min. distance to top of wall.
  3. Minimum f'm = 1,500 psi and f'c = 2,500 psi.
  4. LGUM must be installed on minimum 6" thick wall and HGUM on minimum 8" thick wall. (Nominal values for GFCMU)
  5. Titen HD anchors may be installed into the head or bed joints.
  6. Simpson Strong-Tie® Strong-Drive® SDS Heavy-Duty Connector screws are permitted to be installed through metal truss plates as approved by the Truss Designer, provided the requirements of ANSI/TPI 1-2014 Sections 7.5.3.4 and 8.9.2 are met (pre-drilling required through the plate using a maximum of 5/32" bit).
