I asked before, but didn't receive that much of a response, so I will ask
again. Does anyone have any good/bad opinions on using Hardipanels as part
of the structural shear wall system? My understanding is that you can mount
the panels directly to 2x members with no plywood in-between and obtain
allowable shear values stated in the NER-405. Can I get some feed back from
some of you who recommend or don't recommend using this product as part of
the shear wall system.
Thanks in advance,
