Joist hangers are installed over the top of beams or girders. Top flanges may be welded to steel support beams, or bolted/shot/pinned to other substrates. Tests of joist hangers are based on welded top flange connections. Web crippling of the joist members must be independently verified. Shallow joist hangers are available with (3) pre-punched holes each tab. When attached over cold-formed steel (CFS) girder members with minimum 2.5” flanges, use (3) screws or pins in each top tab for connection to girder.
