Installation
  • Build masonry to the required level, ensuring any coursing bricks or blocks are at least one course below the supporting block. Leave the masonry to cure for at least three days.
  • Place the Safety Fast Lite Masonry Hanger for joists (SFLH) over the inner leaf of the block work, ensuring the top flanges are fully bearing onto the top of the supporting block work and are also tight against the front face of the block work.
  • Install the floor joist into the SFLH. The end of the joist should be tight against the back of the hanger. Maximum gap allowed: 6mm. Install the specified joist nails.
  • Install the appropriate restraint strap. Ensuring the strap is tight against the back face of the block work hanger return and the side of the floor joist. Fix with fasteners as specified in the table below.
