About This Product

The LRUZ offers an economic alternative for those applications requiring a sloped hanger for rafter-to-ridge connections. Used with solid sawn rafters, the LRUZ's unique design enables the hanger to be installed either before or after the rafter is in place. The field-adjustable seat helps improve job efficiency by eliminating mismatched angles in the field and lead times associated with special orders. The LRUZ offers comparable or better load capacity to other rafter hangers at a reduced cost while using fewer fasteners.

Highlights

  • The open design and ability to field-adjust the slope make the LRUZ ideal for both retrofit or new applications
  • Accommodates roof pitches from 0:12 to 14:12
  • Slopes up or down to 45-degrees (12:12) - for slopes greater than 45-degrees up to 49-degrees (14:12), allowable loads are 0.85 of table loads
  • For added versatility, the fasteners on the face of the hanger are placed high enabling the bottom of the rafter to hang below the ridge beam
  • For nominal rafter sizes: 2x6, 2x8
  • Seat width: 1-9/16 in.
  • Made from 18-Gauge steel
  • ZMAX galvanization offers extra corrosion resistance for exterior and treated-wood applications
  • Install with 0.148 in. x 3 in. nails, 0.162 in. x 3-1/2 in. nails or #10 x 1-1/2 in. or 2-1/2 in. Strong-Drive SD screws

Q:Can I use 1 1/2 screws instead of the 2 1/2 screws to prevent the screws from protruding thru the 2x6 board I’m attaching this 2x6 too?

Answer This Question

A:  Hi Greg, thank you for your question. The LRU26Z can use SD #10 x 1-1/2" screws to the carrying member, but there is a 16% reduction on the capacity of the connection. The 2x6 carried member still requires the SD #10 x 2-1/2" screws. If you need more assistance or have more questions, please call our customer service at (800)999-5099. We look forward to hearing from you! - Stacy

      A:  Joseph, this is McKenzie from Simpson Strongtie. The LRUZ is for 2x sizes. You can look at our LSSR/LSU's they are field adjustable and can slope and skew. Thanks.

          I purchased this Simpson Strong-Tie to install roof joists on a outside porch,to attach this to the wall of the house. I have used these before to install a roof with a slope and I have used Simpson Strong-Ties in my barn area over a 30 year period. They have a variety of ties for your project. Check with your local Home Depot to see them. Ret

          To address the issue of limited head room, I used the ZMax Rafter Hanger at both ends of the rafters for a patio cover. Usually, rafters sit on top of a support header, but I butted the rafters into the header with the top of the rafter flush with the top of the header to increase head room underneath. The picture titled "Rafter Hanger at Header" shows that the roof sheets are flush with the top of the rafters and with the top of the header. Note that the attachment holes are high up on the hanger, which permitted attachment to a fascia that was narrower than the rafter without compromising strength. The picture titled "Rafter Hanger at Eave" shows that the bottom of the rafter and lower portion of the rafter hanger are actually about an inch below the fascia strip. Also to increase head room, the purlin strips (2 x 4 lumber) were cut to fit between the rafters, rather than run across the top of the rafters. The "Patio Cover" picture shows a view under the header between two support posts, and the purlin strips are visible overhead. One note about installation... I used the recommended Simpson Strong-Tie screws instead of nails. I found it easier to insert the rafter if I attached the rafter hanger with two screws at one side, while leaving out the two screws at the other side until after the rafter was slipped into place.

          Excellent for mounting stringers to a porch or deck. Surprised it is not carried in store.

          These did the trick for what they were purposed. Would suggest bending the lower angle before putting up.
