The Simpson Strong-Tie BA hanger is a cost effective hanger targeted at high capacity I-joists and common Structural Composite Lumber applications. A min/max joist nail option gives dual use of this hanger. Minimum values featuring positive angle nailing are targeted at I-joist without web stiffeners requirement and the maximum nailing generates higher loads to support structural composite lumber. The unique two level embossment provides added stiffness to the top flange. The Strong-Tie BA3.56/18 top flange hanger features a G90 galvanized finish for added corrosion resistance and requires the use of hot-dip galvanized fasteners which meet the specifications of ASTM A153

Use all specified fasteners.

  • LBV, B, BA and HB may be used for weld-on applications. Weld size to match material thickness (approximate thickness shown). The minimum required weld to the top flanges is 1/8" x 2" fillet weld to each side of each top flange tab for 14 and 12 gauge and 3/16" x 2" fillet weld to each side of each top flange tab for 7 gauge and 10 gauge. Distribute the weld equally on both top flanges. Welding cancels the top and face nailing requirements. Consult the code for special considerations when welding galvanized steel. Weld on applications produce the maximum allowable down load listed.
  • B and HB hangers require the use of web stiffeners. BA MIN nailing does not require web stiffeners. BA MAX nailing requires the use of web stiffeners.
  • Ledgers must be evaluated for each application separately. Check TF dimension, nail length and nail location on ledger.

NOTE: The correct fasteners installed in the correct position must be used to achieve published load values
