HTU Face-Mount Truss Hanger

HTU Product Image

The HTU face-mount truss hanger has nail patterns designed specifically for shallow heel heights, so that full allowable loads (with minimum nailing) apply to heel heights as low as 3 7/8". Minimum and maximum nailing options provide solutions for varying heel heights and end conditions.

Alternate allowable loads are provided for gaps between the end of the truss and the carrying member up to 1/2" max. to allow for greater construction tolerances (maximum gap for standard allowable loads is 1/8" per ASTM D1761 and D7147). See technical bulletin Allowable Loads for Hangers with Gaps (T-HANGERGAPS) for more information.
