Alpine’s new LDS and MDS Face-Mount Hanger Series are designed to enhance productivity by speeding and simplifying the construction process. Engineered to outperform any other comparable face-mount hangers available, these hangers are easy to install and offer outstanding durability and value. They replace up to four different series offered by competitors.
The 33 different hangers in the LDS and MDS Series provide higher load-carrying capacities for all lumber species and load duration factors than comparable products. They also incorporate a highly efficient design that requires the use of fewer nails. The slant nails are guided by a tent to help achieve the proper angle during every installation. In addition, an enhanced nailing option permits even greater load-carrying capacity.
Several hangers also incorporate a unique design with a special tooth that temporarily holds the hanger in place and facilitates proper installation.
“The new face-mount hangers were developed as a result of extensive feedback from customers and our ongoing research and development initiatives,” said Pat Ryan, Alpine sales and marketing manager – Construction Hardware. “Customers can rest assured that they will enjoy outstanding long-term performance and service from these products.”
Designed, engineered and manufactured by Alpine, the hangers are made from high-strength, mill-certified steel. They are backed by nearly 50 years of engineering excellence and experience.
All of the hangers in the new LDS and MDS Face-Mount Hanger Series carry IAPMO (ER_0179) and FBC (FL 14076-R4) engineering approvals.
