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
The LB hangers are currently only tested/rated with the nails specified on our website or in the current Wood Construction Connectors catalog. Thank you!
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!
Yes, a 2 x 12 is the size of the wood before removal of the bark sawing and drying of the lumber, thus after milling the final piece of wood is 1 1/2 x 11 1/4. Mike

Ordered online and shipped to home. More efficient than being sent to the store.
We size and rate our hangers based on dry lumber. The sizes are based on industry standards of what is typical for shrinkage when the lumber dries. Thank you!
It is common for the flanges to be sheathed over and I am not aware of any complaints. Thank you!
