Installation

Installation

Installation

  • Use all specified fasteners.
  • For STANDARD installation all round holes to be filled.
  • For ENHANCED installation, all round and triangular holes to be filled, (excluding triangular hole in the hanger’s seat tab).

EWH Standard Installation Instructions – Applicable to I-Joist, Metal Web Joist & Solid Timber Headers

  1. Position EWH hanger onto the face of the supporting Joist, ensuring the seat tab is tight up against the underside of the supporting joist.
  2. Ensure hanger sides are vertical; fill all face round holes, starting from bottom upwards, with the specified fastener.
  3. For top fix installations, fold over the top flange, ensuring a tight fold line along the top edge of the supporting timber, and fill all top round holes with the specified fasteners (NOTE: Depending upon the joist depth, the fold line may be up to 6mm above the perforation lines).
  4. For face fix installations, snap off the top flange along the perforation line (NOTE: The top flange may be snapped off pre or post installation).
  5. Insert the incoming joist, ensuring it is tight against the back of the EWH (maximum allowable gap is 3mm between end of incoming joist and face of hanger) and fill all round holes in the side flanges.
  6. For instances where the supporting member is deeper than the hanger, bend the seat tab upwards so the hanger fits tight against the face of the supporting member.

EWH Enhanced Installation Instructions – Applicable to I-Joist, Metal Web Joist & Solid Timber Headers

  1. Metal Web Headers Only: Install an 18mm plywood gusset to the face of the metal web joist. The plywood gusset is to be at least 400mm long and full depth of the metal web joist. The plywood gusset is installed with 8 No ESCR8.0x80mm screws. The screws are to be positioned in accordance to illustration below.
  2. I-Joist Headers Only: Install a backer block onto the front face of the I-Joist. The backer blocks size and installation requirements shall be in accordance to the relevant I-Joist manufacturer’s specifications.
  3. Position EWH hanger onto the face of the supporting joist, ensuring the seat tab is tight up against the underside of the supporting joist’s bottom chord.
  4. Ensure hanger sides are vertical and fill all face round holes then the triangular holes, starting from bottom upwards, with the specified fastener.
  5. For top fix installations, fold over the top flange, ensuring a tight fold line along the top edge of the supporting timber, and fill the round holes with the specified fasteners (NOTE: Depending upon joist depth, the fold line may be up to 6mm above the perforation lines).
  6. For face fix installations, snap off the top flange along the perforation line (NOTE: The top flange may be snapped off pre or post installation).
  7. Insert the incoming joist, ensuring it is tight against the back of the EWH (maximum allowable gap is 3mm between end of incoming joist and face of hanger) and fill all round holes in the side flanges.
  8. For enhanced uplift installations, if the incoming joist is an I-Joist then web stiffeners are required. (The web stiffener’s size and installation requirements shall be in accordance to relevant I-Joist manufacturer’s specification). Fill all round and triangular holes with the relevant fastener.

EWH Installation Instructions – SIP

  1. It is recommended for SIP installation that the EWH is installed face fix only.
  2. Bend the seat tab upwards so the hanger fits tight against the face of the SIP.
  3. Position the EWH hanger onto the face of the SIP so that the top of the carried member will finish level with the top of the SIP.
  4. Install 4 No CSA 5.0x50mm screws through the upper 4 round holes on the face of the EWH.
  5. Tear off the hanger’s top flange, along its perforation line.
  6. Sit the carried member into the hanger and install 4 No 3.75x30mm square twist nails through the round holes into the side of the supported member.
