EWP Hangers

Heavy-Duty Fire Wall Hangers


Reference Series: -- --
The MiTek FWHH Heavy-Duty Fire Wall Hanger is designed to support beams and purlins at header locations. The higher capacity of the FWHH is achieved through top flange bearing along with added face and beam/purlin nailing. As with the FWH hanger, the advanced design allows you to install the hangers before the drywall is attached, allowing your project to be completely framed-up and weather-tight before the drywall sheathing shows up on site.

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.
