Choose Header Type
Choose which Rhino header you need for your rough opening size. Headers are sized for most common rough openings:
- SH3 is for a 0" – 40" opening.
- SH4 is for a 0" – 52" opening.
- SH5 is for a 0" – 64" opening.
Center the header on your bottom chord (it is not required for headers to be centered, but most framers prefer to center).
Using a positive-placement nail gun, or palm nailer, attach the header to the bottom wood chord using 10d joist hanger nails driven through all pre-drilled guide holes.
Slide the header into wall assembly. Support with 2x scrap if the header is centered on 2x6.
Fur down as needed
And you're done!
Tilt up your wall assembly with lightweight Rhino headers and be thankful for such a great product!
