NOTE: Nails are 8d or 10d common wire nails or 1-1/2 inch joist hanger nails. Allowable loads are for hangers nailed into wood or structural composite lumber having an effective specific gravity of 0.50 (such as Douglas-fir-Larch) or greater. Allowable loads are for hangers nailed into wood or structural composite lumber having an effective specific gravity of 0.55 (such as Southern Pine) or greater. Allowable uplift loads have been adjusted by a load duration factor C , of 1.6 (160%), D corresponding to the typical duration of wind and earthquake loads. Tabulated loads are without 33% steel stress increase.

"Critical to the success of any design is the detailing and construction of it. We have been impressed with the Tamlyn Products for their complete system approach."
