Customer Questions & Answers

Could these be used for building a bed frame?

Asked by: Dave
We can only support the use of our products for the applications they were designed/rated for. Joist hangers are rated for vertical loads. We have not evaluated any of our products for use in building bed frames. It would be up to the Designer to determine the suitability of the connector for the specific application. Thank you!

Is this galvenized?

Asked by: jean
The LUS26 is galvanized with our standard G90 coating which provides a low level of corrosion protection. This hanger is also available in Z-MAX (LUS26Z)which has more galvanization and provides a medium level of corrosion protection. (Stainless steel provides a high level of corrosion protection, LUS26SS). Thank you!

Lus26 or Lus26 zmax joist hangers?

Using pressure treated 2x6s for deck joists, is it advisable to use the corrosion resistant lus 26 zmax joist hangers instead of the regular lus 26?
Asked by: Anonymous
Paul - Depending on the chemical being used and other environmental factors, Z-MAX or HDG would be the minimum recommended finish for treated wood in exterior conditions (some conditions may require stainless steel). Please see the following link to determine the recommended finish for your condition: Thank you!

Customer Reviews

2 in. x 6 in. Double Shear Face Mount Joist Hanger is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well engineered product for hanging 2x6's Just used these hangers to attach the ceiling joists to a new header, flush with the ceiling. Before these types of engineered hardware, it was not possible to build this way. Works great, I strongly recommend using a palm nailer to drive in the nails, and use a clamp to hold the hanger tight against the 2x6 when nailing so the hanger doesn't spread apart. There are two tabs you can hammer in to hold the bracket, but I've never had much luck with those.
