G Manufactured from 2mm thick pre-galvanised mild steel to

BS EN 10327 : 2004, DX51D + Z600.


G 75mm load bearing surfaces. G All hangers 150mm deep and over are manufactured 10mm less to

allow for notching and regularisation of timber joists.


G Gusset nail holes are non coaxial. G Standard available widths 38, 44, 47, 50, 63, 75, 100, 125, 150mm.

Installation Requirements
Standard Type S

The back face of hanger must be flush against the wall. The timber joist should be square cut and butting to the back face of the hanger (maximum permitted gap 6mm). A minimum height of 675mm of set masonry must be in position above the supporting flange before any load is applied. Fixing: Nail to the joist through the nail holes in each side gusset with BAT 3.75 x 30mm long square twisted sherardised nails. It is recommended that joists are notched for the base of the hanger to achieve a level surface for plasterboarding. Type R and ST provide additional location and alignment during construction. HD Restraint Straps must be used with all types of SPH joist hangers to provide lateral restraint.
Return Type R (R Type is a Standard type S with Return Plate added).

How to Order/Specify BAT SPH Joist Hangers


TYPE S
Please state dimensions of joist (a) depth (b) width e.g. SPHS22550 Minimum box quantity dependent on hanger size.

TYPES R & ST (made to order)


Please state dimensions of joist (a) depth (b) width (c) top flange (to suit wall width) e.g. SPH22550R100 Quantity made to order
Both the R and ST Type enables the hangers to be positioned accurately whilst the masonry is built above.

Straddle Type ST (ST Type is two Standard Joist Hangers joined together with Jointing Plate).

1. Joist dimensions: Double joist depth and add joist width, ie for joist 225 deep x 38mm wide then: 225 (d) + 225 (d) + 38 (w) = 488mm. 2. The Maxi Speedy blank length must be less than total calculated in step 1, therefore select MS44038 (not MS500 as the joist hanger would stand proud).

When straps are being fixed across joists or trussed rafters which are parallel with the wall, and where there is a gap between the wall and the first joist or truss, the gap must be packed. Noggins must be provided between each joist or truss. Fixing for Heavy Duty and Standard Straps: use either No 12 x 50mm wood screws or 4.00 dia x 75mm corrosion resistant nails.

Movement joints are necessary in masonry wall panels to cater for the natural movement of buildings. Tensile and compressive forces can develop that lead to cracking and bowing of walls. BS5628-3 details the provision of movement joints in clay, calcium silicate, concrete and stone masonry. Power-Tie Movement Ties allow expansion and contraction at movement joints whilst providing shear resistance between adjacent panels and supports. Placing the sleeve on the plain end of the movement tie with 10mm clearance, debonds the tie from the mortar joint, permitting longitudinal movement.

EXPAMET SOFFIT VENT MESH


The provision of eaves vents to limit condensation risk is a requirement of the Building Regulations. Expamet expanded stainless steel is used over the vents to exclude birds and insects. This mesh is an economical material for the purpose. It is readily adaptable to various eaves details, is light in weight and easy to handle on site. Coils of mesh in convenient dispensers make site work easier and avoid wastage.

UNISTARTERS
CAVITY WALLS Brick & Block UniStarters are fixed with their ties extending upwards ready for bending down into the mortar courses. The right hand UniStarter is higher to allow the tie to bed into the first blockwork mortar course.

G Full fixing instructions and all necessary coach screws, washers

G Miscoursing of up to 50mm can be solved by simply bending

integral ties to suit. This will reduce the length of built-in tie, but it still meets relevant test criteria.
