Alpine’s new PH Purlin Hanger Series includes seven different products designed specifically for agricultural and post-frame use.  All of the hangers offer multiple installation methods, giving users maximum flexibility.  Users can also choose from hangers with single-bucket (PHS) or double-bucket (PHD) designs.

These heavy-duty hangers are specially designed to facilitate quick installation of purlins between rafters, joists or trusses in post and beam structures.  They help assure a snug fit between the purlin and joist or rafter.

“The new hangers provide outstanding performance and durability on the jobsite,” said Pat Ryan, Alpine sales and marketing manager – Construction Hardware.  “They are engineered to maximize productivity by speeding and simplifying the installation process.”

The PH Purlin Hanger Series features a unique design that incorporates either a placement tooth or placement nail hole to facilitate quicker and easier installation. Users can nail the hangers at either a 45- or 90-degree angle to suit the application and their specific installation preferences.

All of the new purlin hangers are made from high-strength, mill-certified steel.  Designed, engineered and manufactured by Alpine, they are backed by nearly 50 years of engineering excellence and experience.  The hangers are available for use throughout the U.S.
