Meadow Burke’s new HF-44 Adjustable Half Hanger–Plate is a hanger designed for use with concrete beams where precast hangers have not been installed during the precast operation, where precast hangers were installed at incorrect spacing or where retro proceedures are not desirable. The plate hole is approximately 1/4” larger than the rebar. Horizontal adjustment of up to 1/2” may be made in either direction. Just position the plate hole over the shear bar and with shear bar through the plate hole, slide hanger to base of shear bar and then adjust hanger length to 1/4” setback from edge of beam.
Note: In all applications the shear bars or stirrups must be perpendicular with top of beam surface, not bent or slope in the direction of the hanger. If necessary, bend bars to perpendicular or slight reverse direction from hanger.
