Re: UBC/IBC: Question re CFS with Gypsum Board Sheathing (Shearwall)

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
For Gypsum-finished shear strength on metal studs, look into Sure-Board by
Cemco.  It's a gyp-board panel laminated to 22 ga sheet steel.  It is
fastened to the studs with self-tapping screws, metal-to-metal so the shear
capacity is high.  See ICBO-ES Report ER-7562, and www.SureBoard.com .
