To provide more options for multi-family construction builders, the DGH fire wall hanger can now be ordered with a skewed or offset option. This hanger is part of the new DG fire wall hanger series designed for connecting floor trusses and joists to wood stud walls. All models of the DG series easily install on a two-hour wood stud fire wall (e.g., Type III construction) during framing. These top-flange hangers feature space to allow two layers of 5/8-inch gypsum wall board to be slipped into place after the framing is complete. The DG/DGH/DGB fire wall hangers have been tested according to ASTM E814 and received F (flame) and T (temperature) ratings for use on one or both sides of the wall. All models of the DGH hanger may be ordered with a skew angle of up to 45° or with the top flange offset left or right. The skew and offset options may not be combined.
