Fire Wall Hangers

FWH

Reference Series: DGHF
2015 & 2018 IBC/IRC Code Complaint

The FWH Fire Wall Hanger is designed for attaching truss, I-joist, solid sawn lumber, or engineered wood floor framing members to double wall top plates or minimum 2-ply 2x solid sawn header fire rated wood frame walls. The advanced design allows the installation of the FWH before the 5/8" gypsum wallboard (drywall) is attached and permits the building project to be completely framed-up, and weather-tight before the gypsum wallboard sheathing work starts.

2 Hour Fire Rating: FWH hangers are tested per ASTM E814 standards. When installed on one side of a maximum 2 hour fire-rated wall assembly, the penetration of the MiTek FWH Fire Wall Hanger through the gypsum wallboard will not reduce the fire resistive rating of the 2 hour fire resistive assembly.

Installation

  • Install the face of hanger flanges tight to stud wall framing.
  • For wall framing, hangers do NOT need to be installed at stud locations for full design values.
  • The end of the truss/joist should measure 1-5/8″ from the face of the supporting wall. See Figure 1.
  • The truss/joist should bear fully on the FWH seat with a gap no greater than 1/8” between the end of the supported member and the hanger. See Figure 1.
  • Gypsum Wallboard Installation – Use the FWH-T template to slot cut the gypsum wallboard. See FWH-T Template Sequence image. Slide the gypsum wallboard into position and fasten to the framing members meeting minimum requirements specified by code.
