SMH Joist Hanger Type R (RJH)
The return type hanger is designed for similar application to the Type S but with the advantage of a return flange (25mm as standard ) which greatly increases lateral support by giving the top flange additional resistance to pull out. We would recommend the use of TYPE R return flange hangers wherever possible for all timber to brick applications. As standard the return hanger is manufactured to suit 100mm blockwork, however any length of top flange is available to order.
SMH Joist Hanger Type S (SJH)

The standard hanger is designed for building into brickwork or blockwork.

SMH Joist Hanger Type D (STJH)
The straddle type joist hanger is used when timber joist positions are directly opposite each other on either side of a wall or beam. As standard the straddle hanger is manufactured to suit 100mm blockwork, however any width is available to order.
