If there is any doubt we recommend the use of stainless steel connectors and fasteners. in this case the wood treatment supplier should provide data sheets and recommendations of a compatible connector-coating product. 1. They provide excellent withdrawal and shear characteristics for a robust connection. Z600 galvanised coating gives greater corrosion protection with some treated wood applications and service environments. 3.35 x 50mm stainless steel and sherardised annular ring shank nails. NB. Stainless steel fasteners do not have the same withdrawal capacity as regular nails.75 x 30mm sherardised square twist nails are the standard fastener for Cullen and offer proven performance and ease of installation. Stainless steel fasteners must NOT be used with galvanised connections. Certain pneumatic nailing options can be used in conjunction with Cullen connectors. Galvanised fasteners must NOT be used with stainless steel connections.75 x 75mm round wire nails provide enhanced performance for certain connectors.

Introduction

Application

Minimum 90mm

No minimum

Timber To Masonry Connections Timber Frame

Using standard face fix hangers, in an application where 90mm or less is the required spacing between joists, will cause the side flanges to overlap or ‘clash’.

Using IFI hangers in this application will eliminate overlapping or ‘clashing’ of the side flanges.

GENERAL NOTES 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. All I-Joist to I-Joist safe working loads/characteristic capacities are based on I-Joist headers with fully nailed backer blocks (refer to I-Joist manufacturer’s fixing details). No web stiffeners were used to achieve safe working loads/characteristic capacities stated (I-Joist manufacturer may require web stiffeners). Safe working loads/characteristic capacities quoted are the maximum hanger capacity. When multiple joists are used they must be connected together to act as a single unit (refer to I-Joist manufacturer’s fixing details). Safe working load allowed without backer blocks is 1.8kN up to 245mm deep joists and 1.4kN on joists greater than 245mm deep. Characteristic capacity without backer blocks is 4.08kN for solid timber flange I-Joists and 5.40kN for LVL flange I-Joists.
