Simpson Strong Tie HGUS Heavy Girder Hanger with Double-Shear Nailing

The HGUS is an extra-heavy-capacity hanger for applications requiring girder support. This girder hanger features double-shear nailing that distributes the load through two points on each joist nail for greater strength. Value-engineered, the HGUS is designed to carry high loads for an economical price.
