Simpson Strong-Tie has introduced a new line of fire wall hangers designed to be installed with a power nailer during framing, saving time before hanging drywall and keeping construction projects on schedule.
The patent-pending DGT and DGHT fire wall hangers are designed for floor-to-wall connections in multistory, multifamily construction. They carry a two-hour fire rating and install quickly and easily to help improve productivity and efficiency on busy multifamily jobsites.
Load rated for fastening with either power-driven or hand-installed nails, the hangers can be attached before drywall installation to speed sequencing of trades on the jobsite. They’re also designed as one-piece connectors with no welding or additional components required, resulting in quicker lead times.
