Answer This Question

A:  Hi Edward, thank you for your message. This is Ricardo with Simpson. We want to make sure we address your concerns regarding our LB Light Bent Hanger. The LB is a top-flange hanger for solid sawn lumber applications. This cost-effective hanger is designed for light-to-medium loads while providing uplift. The LB has been load rated for use with a 2x nailer if required. If you need more information or have additional questions, please contact the Simpson Strong-Tie Customer Service team at 800-999-5099. We look forward to hearing from you.

    Q:How are these top-flange hangers different from the PF model?
    by|May 4, 2021
    2 Answers
    Answer This Question

    A:  Hello Hubert, There are several differences between PF26 and LB26 hangers but in general LB hangers are heavier duty than PF hangers. LB is made of heavier gauge steel and uses larger nails. Regards

    by|May 5, 2021

      A:  The PF model is 18ga steel, LB is 14ga. So the PF is thinner. Look at the Simpson site for engineering data on load ratings for the two different hangers.

        Q:When I attach the hanger to 2 x 12 ledger board the Joist is higher then the top of the ledger board by 1/8”.
        by|Nov 26, 2017
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Simpson Strong-Tie manufactures our top-flange hangers to be approximately 1/8” shallower than the specified joist depth. The joist depth will shrink as the moisture content drops after installation. Having the top of the joist slightly higher than the ledger or header allows the joist to remain flush or slightly higher than the header after shrinkage has occurs. Thank you!

              The top flange helps to make quicker and more accurate work.
