Solid Blocking (JB)

Control Joint  
Joist Blocking is pre-cut to fit securely between joists to prevent joist rotation. Joist Blocking is a one piece system in lieu of the typical 3 piece detail offering an economical alternative to installing conventional clips and solid web members.

Finish: Galvanized - G90

Installation:

  • Position the pre-cut Joist Blocking to fit securely between the joints.
  • (4)#10 - 16 screws are required to secure the blocking to the joist flanges using the pre-punched holes.
  • Solid blocking should be installed 7' o.c. maximum along the joist length.
  • Fits up to 2" flange joist product.
  • Blocking for flanges from 2" to 3" available as a special order.

Web Stiffener (JS)

 

Web stiffeners are used to provide reinforcement of joist webs to prevent crippling. Web reinforcement is often required by design to enhance the load capacity of joists. Web stiffeners are installed on the outside of the C-joist.

Finish: Galvanized - G90

Installation:

  • Web stiffeners are centered within the load or reaction bearing width.
  • Web stiffeners require full bearing along their supported ends.

Steel Joist Hanger (S/HJCT)

Simpson Strong Tie  
S/HJCT Installation skewed 45 degrees Double Joist Installation
Installation with CFS steel header Installation with 4x10 wood header Installation with I-Beam. Install with Joist Fasteners as shown.

New improved higher load capacity joist hangers. The increased thickness of the S/HJCT increases the allowable load capacity to use with joists. Joist can be attached from either side or doubled up. This hanger can be used with either steel or wood headers.

Material: 12 ga (97 mil) 50 ksi

Finish: Galvanized - G90

Installation:

  • Attach hanger with specified fasteners.
  • Use round holes for minimum load, use round and triangle holes for maximum load.
  • May be used for weld-on applications. The minimum required weld to the top flange is 1/8" x 2 1/2" fillet weld to each side of top flange. Consult the code for special considerations when welding galvanized steel.

More Features:

  • Uni-directional: Joist can be attached from left or right.
  • One size fits joists 8" through 14" deep.
  • Optional holes for additional load capacity.
  • Simplicity of design.
  • Quick and easy installation.
  • Field skewable up to 45 degrees left or right.

Options:
Single BH Hanger:

  • W = 2-1.8" for 2" Flange Joist

Double BH Hanger:

  • W = 4-1/4" for 2" Flange Joist

Framing Plates (LTP5)

Simpson Strong Tie  
 

The LTP5 spans subfloor at the top of the blocking or rim joist. The embossments enhance performance and allows for design flexibility.

  • Use all specified

Ledger Connector System (ICFVL)

Simpson Strong Tie  
ICFVL Patent Pending Installed as Typical Steel Ledger with ICFVL (minimum 16 ga steel). Requires 4 screws at each location. ICFVL

The ICFVL Ledger Connector System is engineered to solve the challenges of mounting steel ledgers to insulated concrete form (ICF) walls. Simpson's ICF component of the system, the ICFVL, is designed to provide both vertical and lateral, in-plane performance. The system is still quick, versatile and easy to use but now provides so much more! There are many benefits over traditional anchor bolting, including better on center spacing in most cases, faster installation and no protrusions.

Simpson's ICFVL is made from galvanized, 14 gauge steel. The embedded legs are embossed for additional stiffness and the hole allows for concrete to flow through and around the connector. The exposed flange on the face of the ICF provides a structural surface for mounting a steel ledger.

Material: ICFVL - 14 ga (68 mil) 50 ksi

Finish: Galvanized - G90

Installation:

    ICFVL

  • Snap a chalk line for the bottom of the ledger.
  • Mark required on center spacing.
  • Use ICFVL flush to the face of the ICF.
  • Cut kerfs as marked.
  • Insert ICFVL flush to the face of the ICF.
  • Place concrete

    Steel Ledger Attachment

  • Position the ledger level to the chalk line and against the ICFVL.
  • Attach with four 1/4-14x 3/4', #2 drill point screws (not provided).
  • All screws should be located at least 1/2" from the edge of the ICFVL.
  • Space screws evenly.

Reinforcing and Skewable Angles (S/LS)

Simpson Strong Tie  
S/LS50 S/LS70  

S/LS angles are load rated and provide the correct thickness and number of fasteners the specifier is looking for compared with field fabricated clip angles. General utility reinforcing angles with multiple uses. S/LS-Field-adjustable angles attach members intersecting at angles.

Material: S/LS - 18 ga (43 mil) 33 ksi

Finish: Galvanized - G90

Installation:

  • Use all specified fasteners.
  • S/LS-field-skewable; bend one time only.
  • Joist must be constrained against rotation when using a single S/LS per connection.

Coiled Straps (CS)

Simpson Strong Tie  
Typical Floor-to-Floor Tie Installation  

CS are continuous utility straps which can be cut to length on the job site. Packaged in lightweight (about 40 pounds) cartons.

Finish: Galvanized - G90

Installation:

  • Use all specified fasteners.
  • Refer to the applicable code for minimum edge and end distances.
  • The table shows the maximum allowable loads and the screws required to obtain them. Fewer screws may be used; reduce the allowable load by the code lateral load for each fastener subtracted from each end.
