LUS Double-Shear-Nailing
LUS Double-Shear-Nailing

Joist hangers are designed to provide support underneath the joist, rafter or beam to provide a strong a connection. The LUS Double Shear Joist Hanger values engineering at its finest. All hangers in the LUS series have Double-Shear Nailing. This innovation distributes the load through two points on each joist nail for greater strength. It also allows the use of fewer nails, faster installation and the use of standard nails for all connections.

To help with installation speed every LUS Joist Hanger incorporates the Simpson Strong‑Tie Speed Prong feature which is designed to temporarily position and secure the connector for easier and faster installation. 

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

  1. Design Capacity is the lesser of (1) the Characteristic Capacity multiplied by the NZ Strength Reduction Factor (φ), and applicable the k modification factors following 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. 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 New Zealand Joint Group J5 per NZS 3603 Table 4.1.
  5. Uplift loads have been increased for wind or earthquake loading with no further increase allowed. Reduce where other loads govern.
  6. The LUS header nails may be 64 x 3.75 mm nails.
  7. The Design Capacities shall be multiplied by 1.10 when 75 x 3.75 mm nails are used instead of the specified 64 x 3.75 mm nails.
  8. Stainless steel connectors must use SCNR stainless steel ring shank nails.
  9. Nails and Strong-Drive SD Connector screws may not be combined in a connection.
