Product Details

Not only do angles make joints stronger, they also provide more consistent, straight corners. Simpson Strong-Tie offers a wide variety of angles in various sizes and thicknesses to handle light-duty jobs or projects where a structural connection is needed. The ML angle combines strength and versatility through the use of Simpson Strong-Tie Strong-Drive SDS Heavy-Duty Connector screws. Fastener holes are staggered to minimize wood splitting and opposing hole pattern allows for back-to-back installation without fastener interference.
  • Provides a 90-degree connection for medium/heavy duty applications
  • Stronger than angled nailing or screw fastening
  • Help ensure joints are consistently straight and strong
  • Made from 12-gauge steel
  • ZMAX galvanization offers extra corrosion resistance for exterior and treated-wood applications
  • Z-MAX galvanization offers extra corrosion resistance for exterior and treated-wood applications

Q:If I was to use these to hold a shelf on some PT wood what is the maximum load they can hold? I know there are specific brackets for shelving but I am in a unique situation and have to use these.

Answer This Question

A:  Hello Chris, this is Stacy with Simpson Strong-Tie. Depending on whether you use 1 or 2 connectors you may achieve an allowable load of 1000lbs for one ML26Z angle. If you use two ML26Z then you can achieve an allowable load of 2000lbs. If you wish to discuss this further please contact us at (800) 999-5099. We look forward to hearing from you.

    A:  The bracket is as strong as the fasteners that you use to attached it to. There are many variables that go into the calculation, such as length of the shelf. A long shelf is going to create more bending moment and compound stress. I know this is a lot of mumbo jumbo, but it really boils down to the fastener your use and the material you attach it to. This bracket will hold hundreds and hundred of pounds.

              Q:Can 2 of these be used as a substitute for a joist hanger?

              Answer This Question

              A:  It is up to the Designer/Engineer of Record to specify the appropriate connector based on framing layout, demand loads, local building codes, etc. There is quite a range of joist hangers available, so it is not possible to answer this question, but we can direct you to the allowable loads for this angle: https://www.strongtie.com/deckconnectors_decks/ml_angle/p/ml. Thank you!

                A:  That's not safe and not recommended. Please consider a proper hanger which will support it properly.

                A:  I have used these many times on an inside corner but I wouldn’t recommend using them as a standard joist hanger. They have nothing supporting the joist from underneath and I doubt using them in that manor would pass any kind of building code.

                Good product. Unfortunately the bracket was longer than the actual 2x6” boards I was attaching. So, I had to use a saw to trim the bottom 1/4” or so off. But other than that they worked fine.
