Mitek Slant Nail Face Mount Joist Hangers
The HUS, JUS, and MUS hanger series offers double shear nailing. MiTek’s dimple allows for 30° to 45° nailing through the joist into the header resulting in higher loads and less nailing. Slant/double shear nailing allows for higher load values, fewer nails, and faster installation.
Materials: JUS – 18 gauge; MUS – 18 gauge; HUS – 14 or 16 gauge
Finish: G90 galvanizing
- Use all specified fasteners.
- Joist nails must be driven at a 30° to 45° angle through the joist or truss into the header to achieve listed loads. Slant/double shear nails must be used to achieve listed load values.
- JUS / MUS – 16d sinkers (0.148″ x 3-1/4″) may be used where 10d commons are specified with no load reduction.
