IMHO, the UBC should list cant' columns as 4.4. not 2.2.

The 16" Hardy Frame panel is essentially a "C" channel bolted to the foundation.
The ICBO report says an R value of 4.4 is acceptable.  In my opinion, this is
a cantilever column and an R value of 2.2 should be used.  I have contacted
the manufacturer and they insist that R=4.4 is acceptable.  What is SEAONC
point of view on this?
