IBC Wood Frame Shear Wall Table -- panels over gypsum

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

I’m curious if anybody uses the Panels (wood structural panels) Applied OVER ½” or 5/8” Gypsum Sheathing portion of the IBC wood frame shear wall table (Table 2306.4.1).  It appears that this portion of the table may be a relic of the Uniform Building Code.  If this portion of the table were dropped, I’m curious how much heartburn this might cause.


Thanks in advance,
