Description & Documents
Proper fasteners are a critical component in a sound wood frame structure. To ensure successful installations of its connectors, USP offers a full range of structurally-rated nails. All galvanized nails supplied by USP are hot-dipped for greater corrosion resistance. Made of ASTM A 153 steel.
- Allowable shear values assume nail embedment into the wood of the entire nail or 10 nail diameters (whichever is less). Otherwise, the nail must be embedded at least 6 nail diameters, with the load reduced using this equation: Reduced Load = (Published Load x Actual Penetration) divided by (Nail Diameter x 10)
- Load reductions may occur if nails are used other than those specified. See the load table Optional Nails for Face Mount Hangers for load reduction factors regarding nail substitutions.
