PFDB Post-Frame Top-Flange Saddle Hanger for 2x Joists
On This Page
The PFDB is a top-flange saddle hanger designed for post-frame construction. It has dome-shaped joist nail holes that guide nails into the proper installation angle. The PFDB features a folded seat that raises the 2x joist slightly above the seat radius to enable a tighter connection to the back of the hanger. The solid, one-piece top flange allows for accurate and fast installation.
Installation prongs make setting the hanger quick and easy
The double-shear nailing design distributes the load through two points on each joist, providing greater strength with fewer nails
PFDSB saddle models are for back-to-back 2x joists, and PFDLB saddles are for LVL joists
Use all specified fasteners; see General Notes.
