The HB is a top-flange hanger designed to carry medium to high loads for solid sawn and engineered wood applications. This heavy beam hanger features a full-height joist flange that captures the top chord of the joist to prevent rotation. With its one-piece design, the HB provides a cost-effective solution compared to welded hangers.
See Hanger Options for hanger modifications, which may result in reduced loads.
