RE: Plywood & Mtl. Studs

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The last time I worked with this type of shear walls (3+ years ago), it was
the screw manufacturer that had to get the ICBO / LARR approval.  You may
want to start there.  Some references I have are: 
ICBO # ER-5272 for Muro North America (905) 451-7667, fax (905) 451-7936,
Ontario, Canada and 
ICBO # ER-5053 for Quik Drive USA fax (615) 451-9806, Gallatin, Tennessee
Good Luck

	I am sure there are "approved" values for plywood shear panels
screwed onto 
	metal studs.  Can anyone refer me to those values (incl. L.A. City).

	Thank you
