Re: hardee boards

The product does have an  Evaluation Report (NER-405) which contains allowable
shear wall values that you can get from the ICBOES web site.  I have seen one
installation and was not particularly impressed.  The material seems quite
brittle and I would expect performance similar to gypsum board.
