The HU Face Fix Joist Hanger is a heavy‑duty hanger designed for applications requiring additional strength and safety factors. It is suitable for fixing to timber or masonry. 

Please check Corrosion Information if it is suitable for your application.

Material

Carbon Steel 2mm thick

Finish

Z275 Galvanised

Features & Benefits
  • Quick and easy installation using either nails or screws
  • Triangular holes (on most models) are for increased load capacity
  • Manufactured in heavier gauge steel for a stronger load capacity
  • Large seat for joists provides greater strength and support
  • Can be installed on solid timber header, or concrete/masonry wall
  • Installation to the header material can be done with Strong‑Drive® connector nails, Strong‑Drive® SD connector screws (for timber attachment) or Titen Turbo Concrete and Masonry Screw Anchors (for concrete and masonry attachment)
    (Please refer to technical sheet for installation and load requirements)
Installation
  • Use all specified fasteners (Refer to table below). Fasteners sold separately
  • Suitable for use with CCN64 connector nail gun (for timber attachment only)
  • Verify that the header can take the fasteners specified in the table
  • HU hangers must be installed by filling all round and triangular holes, with the specified fasteners
  • Web stiffeners are required for all I-joists used with these hangers
  • The hanger depth is to be at least 60% of the carried member depth to prevent rotation, unless additional lateral restraint is added to the top of the carried member
  • When nailing into solid sawn carrying member's end grain, the allowable load should be adjusted by a factor of 0.67
  • Recommended screw anchors for concrete core filled block work and solid concrete are the Titen Turbo™ 6.5mm x 70mm Hex Head - Model TNT25234H (Please refer to the technical data sheet for installation using TNT screw anchors to concrete and masonry walls)
  • Drill and prep the holes according to the installation instructions provided with Titen Turbo screw anchors

  1. Design Capacity is the lesser of (1) the Characteristic Capacity multiplied by the Australian Capacity Factor, and applicable the k modification factors following AS1720.1 and (2) the Serviceability Capacity which is the load at 3.2mm joint slip. Design Capacity is the minimum of test data and structural joint calculation.
  2. For Australia, the Capacity Factor (φ) is 0.85 for nails and screws for structural joints in a Category 1 application. Reduce tabulated values where other Category applications govern.
  3. Duration of Load Factor (k1) is as shown. Reduce Duration of Load Factor (k1) where applicable. Capacities may not be increased.
  4. Timber species for joint design is seasoned Radiata Pine, which is Australia Joint Group JD4 per AS 1720.1 Table H2.4
  5. For maximum nailing quantity and load values, fill all round and trianglular holes.
  6. Concrete shall have a minimum compressive strength of f'c = 18 MPa and concrete core filled blockwork/masonry shall have a minimum compressive strength of f'm =10 MPa.
  7. Products shall be installed such that Titen Turbo screws are not exposed to the weather.
  8. Fasteners: Nail dimensions are listed diameter by length. Titen Turbo screws are Simpson Strong-Tie concrete and masonry screws (hex-head model required).
