Joist hanger name


Hi, I'm new here and I have what is probably an easy question for you all. Could you please tell me what this is really called...someone said it wasn't called a jost hanger. Can it be used for joists.

sorry the picture is upside down
Thankyou
renee

The terminology is so different, in different parts of the country.

How could it be a rafter tie?

It would not work for a rafter, only joists.

For rafters look at hurricane clips.

............umm.... No it is NOT.

'Rafter ties' anchor tie trusses and rafters to top plates and may be used to tie wood framing members together to resist uplift and lateral forces. Typical Truss/rafter to double plate installation. (definition based on the link below)

Example:
http://hardware.hardwarestore.com/27...ie-637278.aspx

'Joist Hangers' are metal U-shaped brackets used to support the end of a floor joists. It's design is to support the 'vertical' floor loads.

Example:
