Simpson LBV5.12/12 Top Flange Girder/joist/truss Hanger

The BA hanger is a cost effective hanger targeted at high capacity I-joists and common Structural Composite Lumber applications. A min/max joist nail option gives dual use of this hanger. Minimum values featuring positive angle nailing are targeted at I-joist without web stiffeners requirement and the maximum nailing generates higher loads to support structural composite lumber. The unique two level embossment provides added stiffness to the top flange.

The newly improved LBV, B and HB hangers offer wide versatility for I-joists and structural composite lumber. The enhanced load capacity widens the range of applications for these hangers. The LBV still features positive angle nailing and does not require the use of web stiffeners for standard non modified I-joist installations.

See Top Flange Hanger tables. See Hanger Options for hanger modifications, which may result in reduced loads.

Material: See Top Flange Hanger tables.

Finish: LBV, B, BA and HB—Galvanized; all saddle hangers and all welded sloped and special hangers—Simpson Strong-Tie® gray paint. LBV, B, BA and HB may be ordered hot-dip galvanized; specify HDG.

Installation:

  • Use all specified fasteners. See General Notes and Nailer Table.
  • LBV, B, BA and HB may be used for weld-on applications. Weld size to match material thickness (approximate thickness shown). The minimum required weld to the top flanges is 1/8" x 2" fillet weld to each side of each top flange tab for 14 and 12 gauge and 3/16" x 2" fillet weld to each side of each top flange tab for 7 gauge and 10 gauge. Distribute the weld equally on both top flanges. Welding cancels the top and face nailing requirements. Consult the code for special considerations when welding galvanized steel. The area should be well-ventilated, see weld information. Weld on applications produce the maximum allowable down load listed. For uplift loads refer to T-WELDUPLFT.
  • LBV hangers do not require the use of web stiffeners for non-sloped or non-skewed applications.
  • B and HB hangers require the use of web stiffeners. BA MIN nailing does not require web stiffeners. BA MAX nailing requires the use of web stiffeners.
  • Ledgers must be evaluated for each application separately. Check TF dimension, nail length and nail location on ledger.
  • Refer to T-SLOPEJST for information regarding load reductions on selected hangers which can be used without modification to support joists which have shallow slopes (≤3/4:12).
Options:
  • LBV, B and HB
  • Other widths are available; specify W dimension (the minimum W dimension is 1 9/16").
  • The coating on special B hangers will depend on the manufacturing process used. Check with your Simpson Strong-Tie representative for details.Hot-dipped galvanized available: specify HDG.
  • Refer to technical bulletin T-BSERIES for the complete line of LBV, BA, B and HB hangers, including models not shown here, their available modification combinations and their associated reduction factors.
  • Modified hangers have reduced loads, see Hanger Options.

Nailer Table:

The table indicates the maximum allowable loads for LBV, BA, B and HB hangers used on wood nailers. Nailers are wood members attached to the top of a steel I-beam, concrete or masonry wall.

NAILS: 16d = 0.162" dia. x 3 1/2" long,
16dx2 1/2 = 0.162" dia.x 2 1/2" long,
10d = 0.148" dia. x 3" long,
10dx1 1/2 = 0.148" dia. x 1 1/2" long.
See other nail sizes and information
Table
  1. Uplift values are for DF/SP members only. LBV and BA hangers resist more uplift when web stiffeners are used. See technical bulletin T-NAILERUPLFT for other uplift values and options.
  2. See reductions on modified hangers on nailers.
  3. B hangers require 6-10dx1 1/2 joist nails to achieve published loads. For joist members 2 1/2" or wider, 16dx2 1/2" joist nails should be installed for additional uplift loads on the 3x and 4x nailer applications of 970 lbs. and 1010 lbs. respectively.

Table

  1. This table assumes joists with Fc = 750 psi. For other joists, check that bearing and joist nails are adequate.
  2. Loads for B's and HB's assume a joist width of 2 1/2" or greater.
  3. Uplift loads are based on DF/SP lumber and have been increased for wind or earthquake loading with no further increase allowed. Reduce where other loads govern.For SPF/HF use 0.86 x DF/SP uplift load.
  4. Loads may not be increased for short term loading.
  5. Web stiffeners required when more than two joist nails are used
  6. SCL (structural composite lumber) is LVL (laminated veneer lumber), LSL (laminated strand lumber), and Parallam® PSL.
  7. Code values are based on DF/SP header species.
  8. Applies to LVL headers made primarily from Douglas Fir or Southern Pine. For LVL made primarily from Spruce-Pine-Fir or similar less dense veneers, use the values found in the SPF/HF column.
  9. DF I-joists include flanges made from solid sawn Douglas Fir, LVL made primarily of Douglas Fir/Southern Pine, or LSL. For flanges with thicknesses from 1 5/16 to 1 3/8, use 0.85 of the I-joist header load. For flanges with thicknesses from 1 1/8 to 1 1/4, use 0.75 of the I-joist header load.
