has anyone used these before Please login (registration is free!) to view this link. http://www.strongtie.co.uk/pdf/JHA.pdf the below support model i have an steel beam running across the kitchen, on top of the beam runs the brick wall so i can sit the joists on it but would prefer them to be lower than the beam so that the floor level will be lower in the new room above. This mean i can knock through from the landing without worrying about steps into etc. Just wondered if anyone had used them, the pic looks simple enough, although it implies sitting one piece of timber in the flange and one above. i would prefer something that wrapped around the beam. any ideas or thoughts. Obviously will run it by the inspector first. do you have to bolt the timber to the beam or bolt the tie to the beam and steel?
