Joist Hangers for LVL beams


I am installing a pair of 2x12 LVL beams. I need a joist hanger that can support them.

Standard double joist hangers for regular 2x12s do not fit these LVL beams, as the LVL beams are wider than regular studs.

Where can I find a double joist hanger (ideally via an online source) that would hold these two LVL 2x12s? It would need to be 3 1/2 inches wide.

Thanks very much.

Pete

You can find them at any lumberyard. They're all a stock item.

Pete, what that means is to try an actual Lumber/building materials supply house, rather than a "Big Box Home Store"...

Thanks for the advice. I dropped by a great lumberyard that I had not yet been to, and they had it right there.
