The SDE Split Joist Hanger is a two‑piece, width‑adjustable joist hanger that can accommodate joist widths from 60mm and 120mm. Each SDE is comprised of one left and one right piece. It is essential to install nails in the base of the joist hanger to ensure a solid assembly.

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

Material

Carbon Steel 2mm thick

Finish

Z275 Galvanised

Features & Benefits
  • Manufactured in heavier gauge steel for a stronger load capacity
  • One joist hanger with adjustable width can handle multiple applications, simplifying purchasing
  • Quick and simple installation
  • The hangers have bolt holes for 10mm or 12mm fasteners into the face
  • Can be installed on solid timber header, I-Beam or concrete/masonry wall
  • Compatible with Strong-Drive® SD screws
Installation
  • Use all specified fasteners
  • Verify that the beam/header can take the fasteners specified in the table
  • Each SDE piece must also be nailed through the holes underneath the joist
  • The hangers have bolt holes for 12mm fasteners into the face
  • The timber bolted capacity to be determined according to the relevant standards. Do not exceed the load values given in the table
  • 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
  • These hangers cannot be skewed

  1. Design Capacity is the lesser of (1) the Characteristic Capacity multiplied by the Australian Capacity Factor, or the NZ Strength Reduction Factor (φ), and applicable the k modification factors following AS 1720.1 and NZS 3603 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. For NZ, the Strength Reduction Factor (φ) is 0.80 for nails in lateral loading.
  3. Duration of Load Factor (k1) is as shown. Reduce Duration of Load Factor 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 and New Zealand Joint Group J5 per NZS 3603 Table 4.1.
