We stock a large range of high quality construction & marine fixings. As well as the standard range we specialise in larger sizes, longer lengths and larger diameters of screws and fasteners.
The IUSE is a face fix hanger for supporting I-joists from timber members.
IUSE hangers guarantee easy installation thanks to the top flanges, while maintaining the bottom chord by strong grip. Nailing is done on the lateral flanges after pre-positioning the connectors with speed prongs.
This hanger incorporates the “Strong Grip™” which secures the I-Joist without the need for any fasteners - where no uplift is required.
Joist top flanges are laterally restrained by the side of the hanger,
eliminating the need for web stiffeners. I-joist manufacturers may
require web stiffeners.
Enhanced Uplift Loads:
The IUSE has optional triangular nail holes for additional uplift. Properly attached web stiffeners will be required for enhanced uplift.
Because these hangers are fully die-formed, they cannot be modified. However these models will normally accommodate a skew of up to 5 degrees.
