RE: Strap Bracing for Metal Stud Wall

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Reza-

That makes sense to me, but why do you think that 2213.8.5 doesn't
apply?

:It probably falls under item 1.3. of table 16-N (Light steel-framed
bearing
:walls with tension-only bracing) with height limit of 65' and R=2.8

and

:>Just curious.
