The MEGANT E (450×150×50) beam hanger systems are the Extended version of the MEGANT, with deeper clamping jaws, specifically made & tested for seismic scenarios.
These pre-engineered, high-capacity post-to-beam connections were interstory drift tested and demonstrate a ductile behavior, able to sustain load carrying capacity past the 2.5% drift limit.
The MEGANT E allow mass timber member installation from all directions (top, bottom & sides) due to their composition; Two connector plates, two deep clamping jaws (one threaded / one unthreaded), and up to three threaded rods, washers, & nuts that will tighten the assembly together once in place (from top down or bottom up). They are fully concealable, providing adequate fire resistance rating, and are ideal for a serial preinstallation in a shop controlled environment.
They are using a combination of 45° & 90° angled, fully threaded ASSY VG CSK 5/16” x 6-1/4” [8 x 160mm] screws. These fasteners are ICC-ESR approved in the United States and accredited by a Canadian Construction Materials Centre Reports (CCMC) approval in Canada. Using a MEGANT Pre-drill Jig accelerates the process even further and reduces the overall connections’ cost, but it will also ensure a successful and uniform installation.
