The WP may be used for weld-on applications. The minimum size weld is a 1 1/2" long fillet weld to each side of the top flange; weld size to match hanger material thickness. See General Instructions for the Installer, note k for weld information. Weld-on applications have the maximum allowable capacity listed. Uplift loads do not apply to this application.
Hangers can support multi-ply carried members; the individual members must be secured together to work as a single unit before installation into the hanger.
For skewed trusses using the WP hanger, order the Type B stirrup for proper bearing
For 4x2 trusses, the ANP nail pattern may be ordered with WP hangers, which will relocate the joist nails to the top and bottom chords
