Simpson DHU1.81/14 Drywall Face Mount Hanger w/SDS Screws - G90 Galvanized

SKU: DHU1.81-14
$37.24
Made to Order
Standard Lead Time 2-3 days.

The Simpson Strong-Tie DHU face-mount hangers are designed to carry joist floor loads to a wood stud wall through two layers of 5/8" gypsum board (drywall). These hangers install after the drywall is in place. The hangers come in sizes that accommodate most joists used in multi-family construction including I-joists and trusses. The Strong-Tie DHU1.81/14 face mount joist hanger features a G90 galvanized finish for corrosion resistance and requires the use of hot-dip galvanized fasteners which meet the specifications of ASTM A153.


Installation:
  • Use all specified fasteners.
  • Simpson Strong-Tie Strong-Drive SDS Heavy-Duty Connector screws are provided with the hanger.
  • Drywall is installed first.
  • DU and DHU are mounted with top of hanger flush with top of wall and tight to the drywall.
  • Wall top plates must be restrained to prevent rotation. Use an SSP stud plate tie connector at the back of each stud or provide equivalent restraint by another method as determined by Designer.
  • Upper plate splices must occur at a stud location.

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