GLTV/HGLTV Heavy-Duty Hangers

GLTV/HGLTV

GLTV and HGLTV hangers are designed for structural composite lumber header applications that require high loads. The top-flange nails are sized and specifically located to prevent degradation of the header due to splitting of laminations.

For heavy loads with a face-mount application, see the HGUS and GU series.

Material

  • Top flange — 3 gauge; stirrups — 7 gauge

Finish

  • Simpson Strong-Tie® gray paint. HDG available; contact Simpson Strong-Tie.

Installation

  • Use all specified fasteners. Verify that the header can take the required fasteners specified in the load table.
  • This series may be used for weld-on applications. Minimum required weld is a 3/16" x 2 1/2" fillet weld at each end of the top flange for GLTV, and a 1/4" x 2 1/2" fillet weld at each end of the top flange for HGLTV; see General Instructions for the Installer, note m for weld information. Weld-on applications produce maximum loads listed. For uplift loads refer to Top-Flange Hangers Welded to Structural Steel Members (T-WELDUPLFT).
  • Web stiffeners are required with I-joists using this hanger style.
  • GLTV or HGLTV hangers may be installed on ledgers provided the ledgers are made of 4x solid sawn or 3 1/2" SCL shown in the load table. Thinner lumber must be evaluated by the building Designer.
  • HGLTV hangers should not be attached to nailers.

Options

  • See Hanger Options information.
  • Hot-dip galvanized: specify HDG.
  • 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 for the GLT/GLS/GLTV is 6,500 lb.; for the HGLT/HGLS/HGLTV it is 9,165 lb.
    • 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.

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.

Load Tables

    These products are available with additional corrosion protection. Additional products on this page may also be available with this option, check with Simpson Strong-Tie for details.

  1. Uplift loads have been increased for wind or earthquake loading with no further increase allowed. Reduce where other loads govern.
  2. Uplift loads only apply when "H" is 28" or less. Uplift loads for nailer applications is limited to 710 lbs.
  3. For hanger heights exceeding the joist height, the allowable load is 0.50 of the table load.
  4. 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.
  5. Nailer shall be minimum 2-2x, 3x or 4x DF/SP. Use 16d x2 1/2" nails.
  6. For SCL products made primarily from Douglas Fir or Southern Pine use 1640 lbs. for uplift. For SPF member use 1115 lbs. for uplift.
  7. NAILS: 16d = 0.162" dia. x 3 1/2" long. See other nail sizes and information.
