Hangers support box headers

Simpson Strong-Tie Co. Inc.’s SHH Steel Header Hangers support cold-formed steel framing box headers and large-flange lay-in headers in curtainwalls. They reduce drywall buildup, have minimal screw counts and a galvanized G90 finish. Two models are offered: SHH6 and SHH3. SHH6 is manufactured in steel thicknesses of 54-mil (16-gauge) and 68-mil (14-gauge) and is for use with 6-inch (minimum) box headers. SHH3 is manufactured from 68-mil (14-gauge) steel; it is for 3 5/8-inch or 4-inch (maximum) box headers and large-flange lay-in headers.
