Deck Framing Angles
Angled Decking Anchors For Wood-Frame Construction
Framing angles, or angled framing anchors, are typically corner pieces in design and connect joists, studs, or rafters to perpendicular beams. In light wood-frame construction, they often support the joists that connect to a wood beam or girder if a joist hanger can't be used.
Framing Angles come in multiple varieties:
- The MP34 is the standard multi-purpose framing angle. It's the smallest of our selection making it well suited for attaching smaller joists.
- The MPA1 is a multi-purpose framing angle featuring bendable tabs on one end and a reversable design. These tabs enable two-way and three-way connections, allowing for a wide range of applications. Note: Bend Tabs Only Once.
- The MP5 is a skew-able framing angle featuring a perforated corner. It can be field adjusted from 0-degree to 135-degree to fit a range of angles (comes fabricated at a 100-degree angle). Note: Bend Angle Only Once.
While each may be different, they all share the same essential function of connecting joists to studs, beams, and rafters.
All framing angles in this selection are made of 316 Stainless Steel for superior corrosion resistance. 316 Stainless Steel is well suited for applications in severe, harsh, or marine environments. It should only be installed with 316 Stainless Steel Nails to maintain the product warranty. The number of holes in a given framing anchor dictates the number of nails expected to be used to make a secure connection.
