Pleasanton, Calif.

Simpson Strong-Tie’s Steel Strong-Wall shearwall 2006 IBC code has been listed for use in two-story construction applications. Prefabricated shearwalls are made from steel and provide the strength and load capacity needed for designs while offering narrow widths to accommodate larger openings. The walls are code-listed to the 2006 IRC/IBC (see ICC-ES ESR-1679) and conform to ICC-ES Acceptance Criteria (AC322). ICC-ES ESR-1679 provides allowable base-moment information and a design example to help designers with stacked-wall solutions that account for cumulative overturning.
