Re: Strap Bracing for Metal Stud Wall

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Look into Sure-Board by Cemco [ ].  It is a gypboard/steel
composite panel.  22 gage steel sheet is bonded to gypsum wall board.  It
attaches to studs with self-drilling self-tapping screws, steel-to-steel.
ICBO Evaluation Service  Report ER-5762 gives approved shear values for
resisting seismic and wind forces.
