Face Fix


For fixing joists to an existing wall or beam.
Standard depth 190mm.
Bolt into position through two 12mm holes provided.

Options
Joist hangers are also available in stainless steel to special order.

Fixing
The back plate of the hanger should lie flat against the supporting masonry, which should be smooth. The underside of the masonry flanges should bear directly upon the supporting masonry wall whenever possible. If packing between the masonry flange and the wall is necessary, the packing must have a compressive strength at least equal to the supporting masonry and it must extend over the full bearing area. Joists should be cut to fit tightly to the back face of the hanger and be fixed securely through the holes provided in the side flanges.

Supporting masonry and masonry up to 900mm above should be allowed to fully cure before any load is applied to the hanger.

Technical
Our joist hangers comply with the requirements of B.S. 6178 Part 1, 1990. They are stitch welded and galvanised to BS EN ISO 1461.
