PF/PFB/PFDB Post Frame Hangers

PF/PFB/PFDB

The PF series hangers have been redesigned to accommodate collated nails (0.148 x 1 1/2") as well as the 10d common nail (0.148 x 3"). The PFB and PFDB have dome-shaped joist nail holes that guide nails into the proper installation angle. The redesign also features a folded seat that raises the 2x joist very slightly above the seat radius to enable a tighter connection to the back of the hanger. For saddle hangers, PFDB and PFDSB are for solid sawn lumber carrying members, and PFDL is for LVL carrying members.

Key Features

  • Installation prongs make setting the hanger quick and easy
  • Sizes are available for 2x8 joists

Material

  • 20 gauge

Finish

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

Installation

  • Use all specified fasteners; see General Notes.
  • 10d common purlin nails must be driven at an angle through the purlin into the header. Combine with top nails to achieve table loads.
  • 10d x1 1/2" purlin nails must be driven at an angle into the purlin but do not penetrate into the header. Combine with back face fasteners and top nails to achieve table loads.

  1. Uplift loads have been increased for wind or earthquake loading with no further increase allowed; reduce where other loads govern.
  2. Nails: 10d = 0.148" dia. x 3" long, 10d x 1 1/2" = 0.148" dia. x 1 1/2" long. See other nail sizes and information.
