In Reply to: Help. I need to know the design specificatons of a joist hanger. posted byRyan Hoffman on September 18, 2002 at 07:45:08:
: I am a high school student and we are designing joist hangers for rough cut lumber. Iwould like to know what the design specifications are for a a normal 2X8 joist hanger.
: Thank you.
It depends....you can get very light ones for light deck applications or you can get a 2X8 seat designed to carry the heal of a very heavily loaded truss. The thickness of the metal, the number of nails and placement of nails is controlled by the design load.
Try searching with "wood connectors" and look at the manufacturers websites.
