S/LBV / S/B and S/BA Hangers

S/BA is the new Simpson Strong-Tie® top-flange hanger for cold-formed steel. The S/BA is a cost-effective alternative to heavier, special-order hangers. It is value engineered and tested to achieve higher allowable loads and increased performance. It may be fastened with screws or powder-actuated fasteners or welded to the header, providing more design options and greater versatility.

S/LBV and S/B hangers are manufactured with precision forming and quality control, providing dimensional accuracy and helping to ensure proper bearing area and connection.

Load Table


  1. Designer shall ensure that the joist member adequately transfers load to hanger.
  2. Cold-formed steel / steel-beam header must be braced to prevent buckling per Designer specification.
  3. Powder-actuated fasteners may be installed in up to 10mm steel headers having a minimum Fy=248MPa.
  4. Load is based on using the Simpson Strong-Tie® PDPAT-62KP powder-actuated fastener and a minimum Red (level 5) powder load.
  5. Tabulated loads are based on testing with full bearing of 64mm flange-depth minimum thickness of 1.55mm joists for S/LBV and S/BA hangers and 1.95mm joists for S/B hangers.
