The recent code changes in Canada and the United States include provisions for building Tall Wood buildings. This change leads to the opportunities to build taller but also comes with new considerations for connection design including requirements for inter-story drift performances and fire rating. Pre-engineered beam hangers offer an off the shelve solution, simplifying the design challenges that designers are facing for the most common framing systems used in tall wood buildings in North America.
This presentation will go over key points designers must pay attention to when designing with pre-engineered beam hangers in tall wood buildings.
