New Fire Wall Hanger Now Available with Skewed or Offset Top-Flange Options

Pleasanton, Calif. – To provide more options for multi-family construction builders, the new Simpson Strong-Tie® DGH fire wall hanger can now be ordered with a skewed or offset option. This hanger is part of the new DG fire wall hanger series designed for connecting floor trusses and joists to wood stud walls.

All models of the DG fire wall hanger series easily install on a two-hour wood stud fire wall (e.g., Type III construction) during framing. These top-flange hangers feature space to allow two layers of 5/8″ gypsum wall board (drywall) to be slipped into place after the framing is complete. The

DG/DGH/DGB fire wall hangers have been tested according to ASTM E814 and received F (flame) and T (temperature) ratings for use on one or both sides of the wall. They are listed in Intertek Design No. SST/WPCF 120-01.

“As soon as we released the new fire wall hanger series in July, we immediately turned our attention to developing these two special options. We listened to customer feedback about the strong need to offer solutions for the two most common nonstandard connections they encounter on the jobsite,” said Sam Hensen, vice president and general manager for Connectors and Lateral Systems at Simpson Strong-Tie.

All models of the DGH hanger may be ordered with a skew angle of up to 45° or with the top flange offset left or right. The skew and offset options may not be combined.
