SIMPSON STRONG TIE - New Masonry Hanger Helps Meet Code For Sustainable Homes

Industry leader Simpson Strong Tie has designed an innovative new masonry hanger to assist in meeting the air leakage requirements, as part of the Code for Sustainable Homes.

The SFLHI (Safety Fast Lite Hanger for I-Joists) is a unique single piece hanger designed to support timber joists from masonry walls without the need for masonry above the course of blockwork supporting the hanger.

This means that the potential for air leakage is reduced and avoids the time consuming and costly mortaring and sealing with mastic around built-in joist ends is avoided.

As well as being CE approved and meeting the requirements EN 845-1, an added benefit is the system also safely allows construction work to continue just three days after the supporting blockwork has been laid as opposed to 28 days in the case of traditional masonry hangers.

Simpson Strong-Tie's Head of Engineered Timber Division, Jon Head, said: "With a close eye on the Code for Sustainable Homes, house builders want a masonry wall-to-joist connection that will compliment the need to reduce air leakage. With the SFHLI we have one, which not only compliments those requirements, but allows for a significant reduction in building time."
