Simpson Strong Tie PFDB Post-Frame Top-Flange Saddle Hanger for 2x Joists

Simpson Strong-Tie Company



The PFDB is a top-flange saddle hanger designed for post-frame construction. It has dome-shaped joist nail holes that guide nails into the proper installation angle. The PFDB features a folded seat that raises the 2x joist slightly above the seat radius to enable a tighter connection to the back of the hanger. The solid, one-piece top flange allows for accurate and fast installation.

Key Features

  • Installation prongs make setting the hanger quick and easy
  • The double-shear nailing design distributes the load through two points on each joist, providing greater strength with fewer nails
  • PFDSB saddle models are for back-to-back 2x joists, and PFDLB saddles are for LVL joists
