58 (800) 521-9790 RSOI JOIST AND PURLIN HANGERS Design Features… of the RS series provide the architect and builder with a wide variety of product sizes and load capacities in 14 ga., 12 ga. galvanized quality steel. This series is designed primarily for use in the panelized roof construction and the wood I-joist industry. One-piece design from positive control dies also incorporates easy access, full side flanges for added support. . increased bearing areas (D and TF) for greater load capacity. There are no elongated holes. WOOD I-JOIST SIZED Single: 2 series (2x) W = 1 9 ⁄16" 25 series W = 1 13 ⁄16" 2.06 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" Double: (-2) 2 series (2x) W = 3 1 ⁄8" 25 series W = 3 9 ⁄16" 2.06 series W = 4 1 ⁄8" 35 series W = 4 13 ⁄16" 3 series (3x) W = 5 1 ⁄8" 4 series (4x) W = 7 1 ⁄8" Material… 14 ga. and 12 ga. heavy –coated galvanized steel: Weldable, non-toxic hot roll sheet is available for steel fabricators. RSV – 14 ga. galvanized steel. RSOI – 12 ga. galvanized steel Installation… all models may be used on wood I-joist, glu-lam or headers. RSV models only may be nailed upon standard wood plates and nailers which are securely installed over metal, masonry, or concrete. The RS series requires the following minimum fillet welds to each tab: 12 ga., 1 ⁄8" x 2". All models may be used for weld-on applications. Welding eliminates all top and face nailing requirements. Verify with the manufacturer when nails may be installed parallel to the glue line. The header may not be able to receive the necessary nails, as required by the specific hanger. Each ledger application must be evaluated for top flange dimensions, nail length and nail placement. Design Dimensions… H is designed to account for full wood I-joist heights. Specify if special H dimensions are required. W dimensions listed are for standard wood I-joist size widths as noted. W dimensions will be slightly oversized to facilitate erection. Specify if W dimensions are required. Loads… average ultimate load values are calculated from independent laboratory tests conducted in accordance with code criteria, with a minimum safety factor of three. Special… web stiffeners are required on all wood I-joist shown in this table. Uplift Values… are the result of extensive testing programs conducted in conformity with criteria set forth by the ICC. Welding… on saddle hangers is done by certified welders. Saddle Hangers… are available and made to the engineer's specifications. They may be used for most conditions except at end wall and are especially recommended for nailer (sleeper) applications. Specify S dimensions as well as W and H dimensions. Sloped Hangers… are available… specify angle or whether sloped up or down. Due to the infinite variety of custom orders, 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. 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.
