The GLS is designed to accommodate high allowable loads for timber and glulam beams. This glulam hanger features a saddle design that eliminates the need for back-to-back hanger installation, while the Funnel Flange feature allows for easy installation of beams. The GLS installs with heavy N54 ring-shank nails specifically created for glulam or heavy timber.

Hot-dip galvanized (HDG) available, please let us know when placing your order.

Key Features

  • N54 ring-shank nails included
  • A cost-effective alternative to using two hangers
  • Not acceptable for nailer applications


  • Use all specified fasteners. Verify that the header can take the required fasteners specified in the table.
  • For attaching to multi-ply headers, refer to technical bulletin Top-Flange Hanger Reductions for Multiple-Ply Headers (T-C-MPLYHEADR).
  • Flatten edge of header to match top-flange radius.
  • Bevel-cut the carried beam for skewed hangers.
  • For hangers exceeding the joist height by more than 1/2", allowable load is 50% of the table load.
  • May be used for weld-on applications. Minimum required weld is a 1/4" x 2 1/2" fillet weld at each end of the top flange; see General Instructions for the Installer, note k, for weld information. Weld-on applications produce maximum loads listed. For uplift loads, refer to technical bulletin Top-Flange Hangers Welded to Structural Steel Members (T-C-WELDUPLFT).
  • N54A nails are included. N54A nails should only be used with solid sawn, timber or glulam headers. When installing on structural composite lumber, use 1/4" x 2 1/2" Strong-Drive® SDS Heavy-Duty Connector screw in lieu of the N54A nails.
  • Loads shown are per side.
  • To order, specify H1, H2, W1, W2 and S dimensions (see illustration).
