RE: Shear wall using steel stud with steel sheet / strap

Have a look at the CEMCO "Sure-Board" product, ICBO/ICC #ER-5762.  It is sheet metal covered gyp board used over metal studs and has some good shear values.  You may be able to see the product at www.sureboard.com

Subject: Shear wall using steel stud with steel sheet / strap

Does anyone know what the code status is for steel stud / steel sheet shear wall in California?  A couple of years ago I went to a LGSEA seminar, and the steel stud / steel sheet shear wall was not approved at that time.  Thanks.
