62 (800) 521-9790 SI Bend tab into the bottom flange and fasten with 10d x 1 1 ⁄2" nails when web stiffeners are not used to help reduce floor squeaks. SI JOIST HANGERS Design Features… constant dimensional accuracy and precision controlled 90° angles ensure proper wood I-joist bearing (flat seat) and header connection and alignment. This design reliability is the result of using positive-control dies, automated machinery, skilled operators and prime quality galvanized steel. Two design styles are available for application and load bearing flexibility. Stock No. Design Configuration S/SI( ) Standard Wood I-Joist Sizes SI: 2 series (2x) W = 1 9 ⁄16" __ series W = 2 1 ⁄16" 35 series W = 2 3 ⁄8" 3 series (3x) W = 2 9 ⁄16" 4 series (4x) W = 3 9 ⁄16" Material… 18 ga. galvanized steel for SI joist hangers meets the specifications for schools and other public buildings. Loads… nailing schedule and design load capabilities are consistent with those obtained in independent laboratory tests. Note… web stiffeners and backing blocks may not always be required. Consult the engineered wood I-joist manufacturer for web stiffener and backing block requirements, and recommended nailing schedule for each. IMPORTANT Design loads are for joist hangers. They are NOT wood I-joist load values (see the Design Product catalog of the engineered wood I-joist manufacturer) W 1C\zn" D H BHSV BHV BEAM HANGERS Design Features… seven versions to meet all specifications. (1) Standard versions (2) Saddle versions (3) Offset versions (4) Skewed versions (5) Top Flange Down versions (6) Top Flange Open/Closed versions (7) Seat Sloped versions The top flange nails are placed to avoid damage to the laminated headers. Nailers and ledgers must be 4x or larger, or should be evaluated by the designer. All fasteners must be used to achieve load values; verify that the header can receive all fasteners. WOOD I-JOIST SIZES Single: 2 series (2x) W = 1 9 ⁄16" 25 series W = 1 13 ⁄16" 35 series W = 2 3 ⁄8" 3 series (3x) W = 2 9 ⁄16" 4 series (4x) W = 3 9 ⁄16" Double: 2 series (2x) W = 3 1 ⁄8" 25 series W = 3 9 ⁄16" 35 series W = 4 13 ⁄16" 3 series (3x) W = 5 1 ⁄8" 4 series (4x) W = 7 1 ⁄8" Applications… BHV and BHSV heavy-duty hangers accommodate typical structural requirements for that extra heavy load… these hangers are used for longer spans which require greater loads that satisfy the safety factor for sound building requirements. For weld-on BHV applications, the minimum required weld is a 3 ⁄16" x 2 1 ⁄2" fillet weld at each end of the header angle; BHSV requires a 1 ⁄4" x 2 1 ⁄2" fillet weld at each end. Nails… use 16d common nails. Finish… SUPERSPEED ® gray paint. Skewed and Sloped Hangers… available, specify angle (50° max.) and whether left or right, up or down. Due to the infinite variety of custom orders, skewed hangers and sloped hangers are not code evaluated. Design loads of the nearest equivalent hanger should be used as a general guide, subject to specific engineering designs. Options Available… The BHV and BHSV hangers can be sloped and/or skewed. See the R series for ordering requirements. Note… web stiffeners are normally required for double joist installation. Consult the engineered wood I-joist manufacturer for web stiffener requirements and recommended nailing schedule. BHV BHSV BHV BHSV
