Fire wall hangers can save time

Simpson Strong-Tie has introduced a line of fire wall hangers designed to install with a power Nailer during framing, saving time before hanging drywall. The Simpson Strong-Tie patent-pending DGT and DGHT fire wall hangers are designed for floor-to-wall connections in multi-story, multi-family construction. They carry a two-hour fire rating. The hangers are load rated for fastening with either power-driven or hand-installed nails, and they can be attached before drywall installation to speed sequencing of trades on the jobsite. They’re also designed as one-piece connectors with no welding or additional components required. “Building code requirements for Type III construction have created the need and demand for floor joist hangers that can attach floors to walls without adversely affecting the fire-resistive rating of the wall,” says Bryan Wert, director of connectors and lateral systems at Simpson Strong-Tie. “With options for standard, heavy-gauge, skewed, and concealed hangers, the new DGT and DGHT hangers provide engineers and construction crews with flexibility to make strong connections across a variety of multistory wood-framed applications and achieve a consistent fire rating quickly and easily.”
