Steel deflection track on wood walls

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
How is a wood partition wall detailed such that it cannot accidently act as a bearing wall?  I'm contemplating a steel deflection track over the top of the wood wall.  I'm sure it would work, but the carpenters might ask why I missed something obvious.
 
The top of the wall sets directly under a parallel steel beam.
