LEG/MEG/EG Beam and Glulam Hangers


See Hanger Options for hanger modifications, which may result in reduced loads.

Designed to support large members typically found in glulam beam construction.

Material: See table.

Finish: Simpson Strong-Tie® gray paint. Hot-dip galvanized available; specify HDG.


  • Use all specified fasteners. See General Notes.
  • Maintain minimum 4D end distance and edge distance from bolt to end of header and nearest loaded edge per NDS requirements.



  1. Roof loads are 125% of floor loads unless limited by other criteria.
  2. Allowable loads assume a carrying member width of 5 1/2″.
  3. Specify H dimension.
  4. Triangle Theory: Some code jurisdictions allow only half of the top flange bearing area to be considered when performing a top flange hanger calculation as there is non-uniform stress under the top flange (presumed to be a triangular shaped distribution). Therefore, loads are published above using the calculated “Triangle Theory”. Loads are also published in the “No Triangle Theory” columns which are based on calculations assuming full bearing on the top flange which do not exceed the tested value with a reduction factor of 3.
