Joist Hanger Selector

Joist hangers represent a critical design component that helps ensure a building's structural integrity. When factoring in load requirements, member size and costs, deciding on the best solution can be a daunting process. The Joist Hanger Selector from Simpson Strong-Tie makes selecting the most cost‑effective hanger based on the type of installation, options and loads easier than ever.

Member Type
Single, Double, etc. indicate the number of laminations, I.E. a double 2x is 3" wide. Rough = Full width and height of the member, I.E. 4x10 is a true 4" x 10" instead of the nominal 3 1/2" x 9 1/4". Nailer = A piece of wood typically laid across structural steel, concrete, or masonry.
Flange Thickness
Rough = Full width and height of the member, I.E. 4x10 is a true 4" x10" instead of the nominal 3 1/2" x 9 1/4".

Hanger Options (Slope, Skew, Etc…)

Skewed
A blank or "0" angle is considered to have "No Skew".
Angle
Skews are measured from 90 degrees or perpendicular. We consider a perpendicular member to have 0 skew.
deg.
Sloped
A blank or "0" angle is considered to have "No Slope".
Angle
Slopes can be entered in either degrees, or in rise over run.I.E. Degrees = 27 or Rise over Run 6:12. 45 degrees, or 12:12 is the maximum slope. The LRU series may be sloped down to 49 degrees, or 14:12.

Top-Flange Open/Closed
A blank or "0" for the angle is considered to have a "Normal Top-Flange".
Angle
Some combinations of hanger options are not available. Many hanger modifications result in load reductions. For more information regarding options, visit: http://www.strongtie.com/products/connectors/hangeroptions.

lbs.
Down Load Duration
Duration of load adjustments as specified by the code are as follows: "FLOOR" and "DOWN" (100) - no increase for duration of load. "SNOW" (115) - 115% of design load for 2 month duration of load. "ROOF LOAD" (125) - 125% of design load for 7 day duration of load. "EARTHQUAKE/WIND" (160) - 160% of design load for earthquake/wind loading.

Uplift Load Duration
Duration of load adjustments as specified by the code are as follows: "FLOOR" and "DOWN" (100) - no increase for duration of load. "SNOW" (115) - 115% of design load for 2 month duration of load. "ROOF LOAD" (125) - 125% of design load for 7 day duration of load. "EARTHQUAKE/WIND" (160) - 160% of design load for earthquake/wind loading. For normal loading applications such as cantilever construction use a duration factor of 100.
