MiTek Releases FWH Fire Wall Hanger, A New USP Structural Connector Product

FWH Fire Wall Hanger Attaches Floor Framing to 2-hour Fire Rated Wall Assemblies in Wood-Frame Construction. FWH Allows Framers to Install the Hangers Before the Drywall is Attached.

CHESTERFIELD, Mo.--()--MiTek USA, a leading manufacturer of code-approved structural connectors, developer of software tools for structural design and product selection, and distributor of anchors, epoxy, tools, and safety equipment, today announced the national availability of its new FWH Fire Wall Hanger.

FWH Fire Wall Hanger. The FWH Series Fire Wall Hanger is the industry’s most economical solution for attaching floor framing to two-hour, fire-rated wall assemblies in wood-frame construction. The FWH Series Fire Wall Hanger’s advanced design has an ASTM E814 approved two-hour resistive rating, and it allows framers to install the hangers before the drywall is attached. This allows the project to be completely framed-up and weather-tight when the drywall sheathing is delivered to the site. The FWH Series Fire Wall Hanger accommodates two plies of 5/8” drywall and is designed to support 4x2 open-web trusses and the most common I-joist sizes. Driving points easily mark slot locations on drywall without measuring.
