Structural Framing Connections

Standard and special preengineered metal hangers are used extensively in timber construction. Stock hangers are available from a number of manufacturers, but most manufacturers also provide hangers of special design. Where appearance is of prime importance, concealed hangers are frequently selected.
Figures 10.14 to 10.16 show typical structural framing details such as beam hangers and connectors and column anchors.
