Could I use 10D 3in nails on these with load reductions? Any what load reduction will I see? Thanks

Could I use 10D 3in nails on these with load reductions? Any what load reduction will I see? Thanks
Asked by: Jesse
Yes, 10d common nails (0.148" diameter x 3" long) can be used in place of the specified 16d common nails (0.162" diameter x 3 1/2" long) with a 0.84 adjustment factor. Thank you!

Can you clarify what screws and or nails should be used to attach these joists. 3 1/2 inches seems too long

Asked by: AXELIZ
I'd use 2 ea. Simpson Strong-Tie #9 1 1/2 inch flanged screws per hanger, one on each side of hanger, one on the top, other side on the bottom, as to provide maximum horizontal 'grip' and not weaken the rafter by directly pointing at each other. More than 90% of load is vertical which the hanger itself supports. A standard 2X6 is 1 1/2 inch thick so the referenced screw is a perfect length and provides optimum grip ... Now, as for attaching the hanger itself, that depends on the structure and material you are affixing to ... I'd limit the length of fastener to the depth of what you're hanging it on, avoiding over penetration ... have fun

Can this be used with 2x8?

My deck is all 2x8 construction and I'm unsure if I an use these. It states 2x6 or 2x8 but it doesn't go the full length of the 2x8.
Asked by: JakefromStateFarm
Short answer is yes ... but careful placement when attaching hanger needs some thought ... angle of rafter or joist, it's height after the ridge cuts, fastener interference, etc. I'd spend the extra few pennies for the 2X8 hanger ... and you'll still need to take into account it's height for the sheathing ... Do your research and planning before you start cutting wood and you'll save not only save time and money, but a few headaches and some frustration ...

Are there approved flat head screw options for fastening to the header so that the joist can fit ...

Are there approved flat head screw options for fastening to the header so that the joist can fit flush, or are 16d common nails the only solution for a flush fit? (Using the approved SD Hex screws (SD9112)for the fastening to the header prevents the joist from fitting flush into the hanger.)
Asked by: FL
The nails would be the only option for a flush fit. As you noted, the SD9112 is approved and it is understood that there will be a slight gap due to the screw heads. Thank you!

This joist hanger is a much better choice over the conventional flavor when it is to be exposed in an 'open cover' outside deck or patio, especially when painted prior to installation ... much more pleasing to the eye ... no flange ears
