The 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 WR has a 25mm drop on the return flange as standard but many specials and variations can be made to order. When ordering please state the width, height and the width of the return.
