Product Description

Product Description

The MEGANT beam hanger systems are pre-engineered, high-capacity post-to-beam connections manufactured from aluminum. They allow mass timber member installation from all directions (top, bottom & sides) due to their composition;

Two connector plates, two 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.



  • Off-the-shelf high-capacity system
  • Aluminum material
  • Specialized for mass timber projects
  • Various housing possibilities
  • Allow post-to-beam assembly from all directions (top, bottom & sides)
  • Easily replicable installation
  • Fully concealable for fire resistance rating
  • Installed with ICC code-approved fasteners
  • Can be used in single or double configuration to increase the supported capacity [Contact our technical support team in the second scenario]


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  Pre-Drilling Jig accelerates the process even further and reduces the overall connections’ cost, but it will also ensure a successful and uniform installation.
