HGLTV hangers are designed for structural composite lumber header applications that require high loads. The top-flange nails are sized and specifically located to prevent degradation of the header due to splitting of laminations.
HGLT accommodate typical structural requirements for timber and glulam beams. Not acceptable for nailer applications. The Funnel Flange™ design allows easy installation of beams.
For heavy loads with a face-mount application, see the HGUS and GU series.
3 ga. top flange; 7 ga. stirrup
Simpson Strong-Tie gray paint. Hot-dip galvanized is available; specify HDG.
Use all specified fasteners. Verify that the header can take the required fasteners specified in the table.
For attaching to multi-ply headers, refer to technical bulletin Top-Flange Hanger Reductions for Multiple-Ply Headers (T- C-MPLYHEADR).
Flatten edge of header to match top flange radius.
Bevel cut the carried beam for skewed hangers.
For hangers exceeding the joist height by more than 1/2", allowable load is 50% of the table roof load.
This series may be used for weld-on applications. Minimum required weld is a 1/4" x 2 1/2" fillet weld at each end of the top flange; see General Instructions for the Installer, note k for weld information. Weld-on applications produce maximum loads listed. For uplift loads, refer to technical bulletin Top-Flange Hangers Welded to Structural Steel Members (T-C-WELDUPLFT).
HGLTV hangers may be installed on ledgers provided the ledgers are made of 4x solid sawn or 3 1/2" SCL shown in the table below. Thinner lumber must be evaluated by the building Designer.
N54A nails are included with HGLT and HGLS hangers.
