Simpson Strong Tie LUS46/118Z Double Shear Joist Hanger 45mm x 120-160mm ZMAX Galvanised


Joist hangers are designed to provide support underneath the joist, rafter or beam to provide a strong a connection. The STLUS46/118Z Double Shear Joist Hanger is engineering at its finest. All hangers in the LUS series have Double-Shear Nailing. This innovation distributes the load through two points on each joist nail for greater strength. It also allows the use of fewer nails, faster installation and the use of standard nails for all connections.

To help with installation speed every LUS Joist Hanger incorporates the Simpson Strong‑Tie Speed Prong feature which is designed to temporarily position and secure the connector for easier and faster installation.
