GLS/HGLS/GLT/HGLT Beam and Glulam Hangers

GLS/HGLS/GLT/HGLT

See Top-Flange Hanger Load Table for Glulam Beams. See Hanger Options for hanger modifications, which may result in reduced loads.

GLT and HGLT accommodate typical structural requirements for timber and glulam beams. GLT top-flange depth allows installation on minimum 4x ledger (3 1/2" net). Not acceptable for nailer applications. Funnel Flanges® allow easy installation of beams.

GLS and HGLS are heavy glulam saddle hangers.

Material

  • All welded GL series glulam hangers have a 3-gauge top flange. See load table for stirrup gauge.

Finish

  • Simpson Strong-Tie® gray paint. Hot-dip galvanized available; specify HDG.

Installation

  • Use all specified fasteners; see General Notes.

GLT/HGLT:

  • 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.

GLS/HGLS:

  • 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.

Options

  • See Hanger Options General Notes.
  • Bevel-cut the carried beam for skewed hangers.

Hanger Height

    • 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.

Ordering Information

  • GLS/HGLS — Specify H1, H2 and S dimensions (see illustration in image gallery)
  • Some engineered wood sizes are also available
