    Rationale

    This work item deals with a proposed new non-mandatory appendix to ASTM D7147. The new appendix (Appendix X2) provides a procedure for establishing the allowable loads of joist hangers and similar devices that were tested under ASTM D1761-88 for compliance with building codes referencing ASTM D7147. This proposed new appendix was developed by an ASTM task group representing multiple joist hanger manufactures, evaluation services and others.
