Re: Mtl. Studs Exterior Wall Anchorage

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Carpenters tend to prefer the PAF's for ease of use.  I also did a bit of prefabriacted LG panel design and they were often fastened with Powers(Rawl) Spike, Drive or Wedgebolt at 32"-48" o.c.  Those seemed to be the fastener types of choice for ease of installation.  Those panels were all 16ga studs and track or heavier, so we felt the 48" spacing was sometimes acceptable.  Bolts had to be used because the panels were set on shims up to 1" thick.  Also keep an eye out for track material bearing with PAF's.  I forget the cutoff, but I recall they can be limited by thinner track sections.
