Interior Shear Walls

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I have not used this method on tall applications, generally at high heels of
exterior bearing walls.  Roughly 4'-0" tall.  Simpson however has a similar
type shearwalls that are as tall as 12'-0".  You would need to consider
deflection and your particular code requirements.
