HFN Panelized Construction Hanger

HFN

On This Page

Modeled after the first hangers created by Simpson Strong-Tie, the HFN hanger has a proven track record of dependability. The HFN is designed specifically for the panelized roof industry that uses jigs or similar devices for precision fabrication. Due to expedited installation, the HFN is a cost-effective top-flange hanger.

Key Features

  • Compression dimples, instead of joist nails, lock the joist in place, making installation faster
  • Designed to allow panels to drop easily into place
  • For panelized roof construction only

Material

  • 18 gauge

Finish

  • Galvanized. Some products available in ZMAX® coating. See Corrosion Information.

Installation

  • Use all specified fasteners in pre-manufactured holes; see General Notes
  • For additional information on retrofit options see flier RUZ/NRUZ Retrofit U Hangers for Panelized Roof Construction (F-C-RUZNRUZ)

Panelized Installation:

  • Installing two nails through sheathing in middle of hanger achieves full load. See product illustrations for fastener location requirements. See technical bulletin HF24N and HF26N Panelized Roofing Hangers (T-C-HFHANGER) for alternate nailing and allowable load adjustments.
