I have an existing 5 1/8" wide roof glue-laminated beam. I need to connect a 2x8 joist to the end of the glue-laminated beam (cantilever end of the beam). I am using the joist hanger from the Simpson (MUS28). My concern is that the nails are very close to the edge of the glue-laminated beam (end section of the beam as shown in the attached sketch). The NDS has requirements regarding the end/edge distance for the bolts. Is there any requirements for the end/edge distance of nails connected to the end of a beam of this nature? Any other detail I can use to resolve this issue?https://res.cloudinary.com/engineering-com/image/upload/v1453073810/tips/CCF01172016_dmgyrz.pdf
