Installation
  • Set the hanger back flange tight against the block wall when built to desired level, then continue with additonal courses to complete wall height. Joist should be tight into the back of the hanger. Maximum gap permitted is 6mm.
  • Use all specified fasteners.
  • A minimum 3 courses of solid block work (675mm masonry) is required above the hanger top flange, with mortar fully cured before applying load.
  • Do not stack blocks or heavy loads on the joists during construction unless the joists have additonal support to take the full load of the blocks vertically and horizontally.
  • The shot-fired pins must be installed by a qualified person in accordance with the manufacturer’s installation requirements.
