Hardy Frame Shearwall System

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The Hardy galvanized steel frame shearwall system (ICBO PFC-5342)
is a relatively new system that replaces plywood, holdowns, special
blocking
3x sill plates conditions, resolves the 2:1 ratio etc.  
Are there any pitfalls that designers need to be aware when using these
systems?
Any comments are greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance.
