HIT Heavy I-Joist Top-Flange Hanger

Share This Post:

Description

The HIT is designed for standard 90° connections of I-joists to headers. This heavy top-flange hanger features positive-angle nailing (PAN), specifically created for I-joists to minimize splitting. The HIT also features extra triangle holes to allow higher uplift loads.

Key Features

  • Time-saving PAN nailing
  • Features two face nails to allow for a higher uplift
  • Cost-effective solution for standard 90º connections in comparison to welded hangers

Material

  • 16 gauge

Finish

  • Galvanized

Installation

  • Use all specified fasteners. Verify that the header can take the required fasteners specified in the table.
  • See product-specific installation drawings.
  • Closed PAN nail holes may be used for increased uplift capacity. See Optional Nailing for Increased Uplift table.
  • For sloped joists up to 1/4:12, there’s no reduction; from 1/4:12 up to 1/2:12, tests show a 10% reduction in ultimate hanger strength. Local crushing of the bottom flange or excessive deflection may be limiting; check with joist manufacturer for specific limitations on bearing of this type.

Allowable Loads

  • Locations are provided for optional nails if additional uplift is needed. Optional uplift nailing requires the addition of properly-secured web stiffeners. See the load tables for minimum required fasteners and allowable uplift loads.
  • For attaching to multi-ply headers, refer to technical bulletin Top-Flange Hanger Reductions for Multiple-Ply Headers (T-C-MPLYHEADR).

Options

  • Because these hangers are fully die-formed, they cannot be modified. However, these models will normally accommodate a skew of up to 5°.
