Masonry Return Joist Hangers

Masonry Return Joist Hangers


The FHMR and WR Joist Hangers are designed for similar applications and installation as the standard Masonry Joist Hangers FHM & WM. The return adds additional lateral support by wrapping around the back of the masonry or timber. The FHMR and WR have a 25mm drop on the return flange as standard but many specials and variations can be made to order.
