HIU

Face Fix Heavy I-Joist Hanger

MIU and HIU are face mounted hangers for supporting I-joists from timber members.

  • The MIU and HIU hangers feature Positive Angle Nailing (PAN), which minimises splitting of the flanges while permitting time-saving nailing from a better angle.
  • With PAN nailing, the slotted hole material is not removed, but is used to channel and confine the path of the nail to the optimum angle.
  • Joist top flanges are laterally restrained by the side of the hanger, eliminating the need for web stiffeners. I-joist manufacturers may require web stiffeners.
