Simpson Strong Tie offers several top flange hanger options for attaching joists to the Strong Frame moment frame.
ITS — The ITS installs faster and uses fewer nails than any other EWP top‑flange hanger. The Strong‑Grip™ seat enables standard joist installation without joist nails resulting in the lowest installed cost.
MIT/HIT — These joist hangers feature positive-angle nailing, which allows the nail to be driven at approximately 45° into the joist flange. This minimizes splitting of the flanges while permitting time‑saving nailing from a better angle.
BA — A cost‑effective hanger targeted at high-capacity I‑joists and common structural composite lumber applications. A min./max. joist nail option creates added versatility.
BA and HB — The BA and HB hangers offer wide versatility for I‑joists and structural composite lumber. The enhanced load capacity widens the range of applications for these hangers. For hangers welded directly to steel beam, see T-C-WELDUPLFT.
