Description

The Borg Adjustable Joist Hanger System is a re-useable joist hanger system.

The system requires far less lumber than conventional decking systems. To prepare a concrete deck form using the Borg AJH System, workers typically space Borg Hangers on two-foot centers across concrete or steel beams. Wood joists, up to 13 feet long, are inserted into the adjustable hangers for the length of the deck. Joist dimensions of 2" x 6" through 2" x 12" can be used. The hangers are adjusted to grade and plywood is nailed on top of the joists to complete the form. The concrete deck can then be poured.

No special tools or training are required to use the Borg AJH System. Setup is much faster than other forming techniques.

Teardown is equally fast and efficient. To remove the hangers, the adjustable lower unit loosens via the built-in treaded rod and slides out. The joist can be removed. Clean up is negligible. There is no sacrificial hardware. Hangers and wood joists are immediately available for reuse.

Borg Adjustable Joist Hanger System asset life is measured in years, not weeks.


Specifications

The Borg Adjustable Joist Hanger System accommodates all common joist sizes. The system easily adapts to varying haunch conditions. By varying joists sizes and spacing, spans of exceptional depth and width can be formed without costly, time consuming undershoring. Borg AJH System components are light weight and compact - without small bolts, nuts, or other parts to lose. When you use the Borg AJH System, you will be able to concentrate on the project without worrying about re-supplying your inventory of forming materials.

History

The Borg Adjustable Joist Hanger System was created "on the job" by a construction engineer - Carl Borg - in response to the time consumption, cost, and frustration resulting from the use of traditional suspended concrete deck forming methods.

The first Borg AJH System went into operation in 1977. Since then, many thousands of Borg AJH Systems have gone on-line at construction sites around the world.

Many Borg customers say that the Borg AJH System is the fastest method they have found for decking. With other methods and hangers, more materials are required. The Borg AJH System single-joist design adds speed as it reduces costs.

The useful life of a Borg AJH System hanger is nearly indefinite. Some of our original hangers are still in use today. With minimum care, each hanger can be expected to provide a useful life that significantly exceeds its balance sheet life span.

The Borg Adjustable Joist Hanger System has earned industry-wide approval. We're proud to offer you the very best concrete deck forming system available and look forward to providing specific information that will help you evaluate the use of our products in your business.
