Framing with Simpson DGT and DGHT Hangars
I was browsing Simpson’s catalog and noticed a new product.
it’s a firewall rated hanger that keeps the floor joists/trusses spaced off a wall enough for double 5/8″ rock (1 1/4″).
they are expensive at $50 a piece.
however for a non fire rated wall assembly I think it would be clever to use to eliminate the rim joist on two story projects and on 1.5 story projects.
with the floor system spaced off and held within the exterior wall there wouldn’t have any rim insulation detail to worry about just standard wall cavity details.
the notching around the hangers is straight forward too. .
