LBV/BA/B/HB I-Joist and Structural Composite Lumber Hangers

LBV/BA/B/HB

Top-Flange Hangers for I-Joists

This product's information may differ depending on the category of use. You are currently viewing details related to Top-Flange Hangers for I-Joists. You can also view product information related to the category: Top-Flange Hangers for Structural Composite Lumber

The BA hanger is a cost-effective hanger used for structural composite lumber and high-capacity I-joists. When modifications are not needed, such as slope or skew, the BA performs similarly to the B hanger at a significant cost savings. When used with I-joists, the positive angle nailing at the joist seat allows the hanger to be used without web stiffeners.

The LBV, B and HB hangers are also available for I-joists and structural composite lumber but have the ability to be fabricated with slopes and skews to match field conditions.

See Top-Flange Hanger Load Tables.

Material

  • See tables.
  • For modified hangers, gauge may increase from that specified for non-modified hangers. Hanger configurations, height and fastener quantity may increase from the tables depending on joist size, skew and slope.

Finish

  • LBV, B, BA and HB — galvanized; all saddle hangers and all welded sloped and special hangers — Simpson Strong-Tie® gray paint. LBV, B, BA and HB may be ordered hot-dip galvanized; specify HDG.

Installation

  • Use all specified fasteners; see General Notes and nailer table.
  • LBV, B, BA and HB may be used for weld-on applications. Weld size to match material thickness (approximate thickness shown). The minimum required weld to the top flanges is 1/8" x 2" fillet weld to each side of each top flange tab for 14 and 12 gauge and 3/16" x 2" fillet weld to each side of each top-flange tab for 7 gauge and 10 gauge. Distribute the weld equally on both top flanges. Welding cancels the top and face nailing requirements. Consult the code for special considerations when welding galvanized steel. The area should be well-ventilated; see General Instructions for the Installer, note m for weld information. Weld-on applications produce the maximum allowable down load listed. For uplift loads refer to technical bulletin Top-Flange Hangers Welded to Structural Steel Members (T-WELDUPLFT).
  • LBV hangers do not require the use of web stiffeners for non-sloped or non-skewed applications.
  • B and HB hangers require the use of web stiffeners. BA min. nailing does not require web stiffeners. BA max. nailing requires the use of web stiffeners.
  • Ledgers must be evaluated for each application separately. Check TF dimension, nail length and nail location on ledger.
  • Refer to technical bulletin Sloped Joist in Non-Sloped Hangers (T-SLOPEJST) for information regarding load reductions on selected hangers which can be used without modification to support joists which have shallow slopes (≤ 3/4:12).
  • For modified hangers, fastener quantity may increase from the tables depending on joist size, skew and slope.
  • Bevel cut the carried member for skewed applications.
  • Web stiffeners are required for all B and HB hangers and also for modified LBV hangers when supporting I-joists.

Options

  • BA is not modifiable. See Hanger Options for modifications.
  • Other widths are available; specify W dimension (the minimum W dimension is 1 9/16").
  • The coating on special B hangers will depend on the manufacturing process used. Check with your Simpson Strong-Tie representative for details. Hot-dip galvanized available; specify HDG.
  • Refer to technical bulletin The Complete Line of BA, LBV, B and HB Hangers (T-BSERIES) for all series hangers; includes models not shown here, their available modification combinations and their associated reduction factors.
  • Modified hangers have reduced loads; see Hanger Options.

See Hanger Options for hanger modifications, which may result in reduced loads.

Nailer Table

The table indicates the maximum allowable loads for LBV, BA, B and HB hangers used on wood nailers. Nailers are wood members attached to the top of a steel I-beam, concrete or masonry wall.

  1. Uplift values are for DF/SP members only. LBV and BA hangers resist more uplift when web stiffeners are used. Refer to technical bulletin T-C-NAILUPLFT for additional information.
  2. See Reduction Factor Instructions below for reductions on modified hangers on nailers.
  3. B hangers require (6) 10d x 1 1/2" joist nails to achieve published loads. For joist members 2 1/2" or wider, 16d x 2 1/2" joist nails should be installed for additional uplift loads on the 3x and 4x nailer applications of 970 lb. and 1,010 lb., respectively.
  4. Steel nailer allowable loads apply to steel header material with thickness between 1/4" and 3/4" with minimum Fy = 36 ksi. Design of steel header by Designer.
  5. 0.157" x 5/8" long powder-actuated fastener = PDPAT-62KP. A red (level 5) or purple (level 6) load may be required to achieve specified penetration.
    See installation under Nailer Table on page 207.

Nails: 16d = 0.162" dia. x 3 1/2" long;
  16d x 2 1/2" = 0.162" dia. x 2 1/2" long;
  10d = 0.148" dia. x 3" long;
  10d x 1 1/2" = 0.148" dia. x 1 1/2" long.
See other nail sizes and information.

B Series With Various Header Applications

  1. This table assumes joists with Fc⟂ = 750 psi. For other joists, check that bearing and joist nails are adequate.
  2. Loads for Bs and HBs assume a joist width of 2 1/2" or greater.
  3. Uplift loads are based on DF/SP lumber and have been increased for wind or earthquake loading with no further increase allowed. Reduce where other loads govern. For SPF/HF use 0.86 x DF/SP uplift load.
  4. Loads may not be increased for short term loading.
  5. Web stiffeners required when more than two joist nails are used
  6. SCL (structural composite lumber) is LVL (laminated veneer lumber), LSL (laminated strand lumber), and Parallam® PSL.
  7. Code values are based on DF/SP header species.
  8. Applies to LVL headers made primarily from Douglas Fir or Southern Pine. For LVL made primarily from Spruce-Pine-Fir or similar less dense veneers, use the values found in the SPF/HF column.
  9. DF I-joists include flanges made from solid sawn Douglas Fir, LVL made primarily of Douglas Fir/Southern Pine, or LSL. For flanges with thicknesses from 1 5/16" to 1 3/8", use 0.85 of the I-joist header load. For flanges with thicknesses from 1 1/8" to 1 1/4", use 0.75 of the I-joist header load.

B Series Modifications and Associated Load Reductions1

  1. Reduction factors are not cumulative. Use the lowest factor that applies.
  2. Web stiffeners required for sloped or skewed conditions.
  3. For straight-line interpolation, "a" is the specified angle.
Reduction Factor Instructions

Allowable Download = Lower of (Seat or Top Flange) x (Table Load)
Allowable Uplift = 0.90 x (Table Load) for B with W < 2 1/2"
  = 0.71 x (Table Load) for HB with W < 2 1/2"
  = 1.00 x (Table Load) for all others
