Face Fix Metal-Web Hanger

The IUB/HIUB hangers support metal web joists and solid timber joists without the need for plywood gussets. They incorporate the unique feature of bottom flanges, which provide enhanced capacity.

  • Can be used on metal web joists or solid joist headers.
  • Eliminates the need for plywood gussets when supported from a metal web joist.
  • IUB Bottom flanges provide enhanced download capacity and quickly sets the hanger onto the header.
  • Obround holes in face to provide easier nailing access in tight locations. 
  • IUB: Positive Angle Nailing (PAN) of joist to speed installation and reduce the likelihood of splitting.
  • IUB has hexagonal holes for SDS screw installation andoptional triangular nail holes for additional download, when used in conjunction with a plywood gusset, and additional uplift capacities.
