Choosing The Right Joist Hanger
Buying incorrect joist hangers when constructing a ceiling, floor or decking is quite simply not an option. That’s why we stock a large selection of hangers from Teco Building Products . with a range of types and sizes to mean that no compromises are necessary.
Our light duty ‘Mini’ range are suitable for ceiling joists and decking and feature a tag that can be nailed on to prevent the hanger rotating. At the other end of the scale in regards to size comes the Woody Long Leg which is ideal for instances where the hanger is extended below the support such as loft conversions.
When fitting joist hangers we would recommend using a piece of wood the same thickness as the joist you are going to hang to help ensure the side plates are a correct and consistent distance apart. Fit one side of the hanger using nails, slot the guide in place and fit the other side accordingly.
