Any joist hanger sharper than 45* angle available for deck?


For my deck build I need to hang a joist on a sharper angle than 45*, looking at strong tie I don't see anything really available.

Are there other options for hangers, or to securely hanging the joist?

They don't make them because you have plenty wood to wood contact, with that angle, for very solid nailing w/o a hanger.

How do you plan on cutting it?
Why the odd ball angle?

I have a driveway that comes off the back of my house next to the sliding door. If you were standing in the sliding door and looking towards the back yard, the driveway goes outward by about 5 ft then angles to the left by about 15ft.

What I'm trying to do is build a deck maximizing the area, that follows the shape of the driveway, so this creates some odd angles.

If I can find a pictuer I took stringing the outline of the deck I'll post it up to give a better idea. I've lost a lot of files lately due to bad hard drives on my laptop.

Use the Simpson LS (30,50,70,90) bracket.

one thing with the ls hangers to take note of,, if you over bend the connector and have to bend it back to the correct angle it becomes weaker and can possilby fail.. make a block that has the correct angle on it.. use the block to prebend the connector to the exact angle
