All GLTs used with sawn timbers have a 12" L dimension.
N54A nails are included with the hangers.
GLT may be attached to steel headers by 3/16" x 2 1/2" fillet welds at each end of the header angle to obtain the tabulated loads. HGLT may be attached to steel headers by 1/4" x 2 1/2" fillet welds at each end of the header angle to obtain the lesser of the tabulated loads or 12,000 lb. For uplift loads refer to technical bulletin Top-Flange Hangers Welded to Structural Steel Members (T-WELDUPLFT). For weld information, see General Instructions for the Installer, note m.
Not for use with SCL or LVL headers. See GLTV, HGLTV.
Use Simpson Strong-Tie® 1/4" x 2 1/2" SDS Heavy-Duty Connector screws when hangers are used with structural composite lumber.
N54A nails are included with the hangers. Alternate fasteners may be permitted. See footnote 1 of load tables.
Loads listed are per stirrup.
See Hanger Options General Notes.
Bevel-cut the carried beam for skewed hangers.
For hangers exceeding the joist height by 1/2", allowable load is 50% of the table roof load.
Sloped and/or Skewed Seat
GLT/GLTV/HGLT/HGLTV and GLS/HGLS series may be skewed to a maximum of 50° or sloped to a maximum of 45°.
For skews greater than 15°, multiply the table uplift load by 0.50.
For sloped only, the maximum allowable load is 6,500 lb. for the GLT/GLS/GLTV, 9,165 lb. for the HGLT/HGLS/HGLTV.
For skewed only, the maximum allowable load for the GLT/GLS/GLTV is 6,550 lb.; for the HGLT/HGLS/HGLTV it is 7,980 lb. The deflection at full loading may reach 1/4".
Sloped and skewed GLT/GLS/GLTV configurations have a maximum allowable load of 5,500 lb. Sloped and skewed combinations are not allowed for the HGLT/HGLS/HGLTV.
Sloped and/or skewed seat hangers may not be installed in non-backed nailer/header installations.
Sloped Top Flange
A top flange may be sloped down left or down right to 30° with or without a sloped and/or skewed seat (see illustration). Reduce allowable table loads using straight-line interpolation of [(90-a)/90] x table load, where “a” is the sloped-down angle.
Offset Top Flange
The top flange may be offset left or right for placement at the end of a header. Minimum seat width 3 1/4". The maximum allowable load is 0.50 of the table load for the GLT/GLS/GLTV, and 0.45 for the HGLT/HGLS/HGLTV.
For skewed and offset top-flange GLS/GLT/GLTV hangers with inward configuration, the maximum allowable load is 3,500 lb. Outward configuration is not allowed.
For skewed and offset top-flange HGLS/HGLT/HGLTV hangers with inward or outward configuration, the maximum allowable load is the lesser of a) 45% of the catalog load or b) 4,300 lb.
No uplift load.
