L/LS/GA Reinforcing and Skewable Angles

L/LS/GA

L — Staggered nail pattern reduces the possibility for splitting.

LS — Field-adjustable 0° to 135° angles. The GA gusset angles' embossed bend section provides added strength.

Material

  • L — 16 gauge; GA and LS — 18 gauge

Finish

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

Installation

  • Use all specified fasteners; see General Notes.
  • LS — field skewable; bend one time only.
  • Joist must be constrained against rotation (for example, with solid blocking) when using a single LS per connection.
  • Nail the L angle's wider leg into the joist to ensure table loads and allow correct nailing.
  • Some products may be installed with the Strong-Drive® SD Connector screw. See model table.
