Re: SSTB Alternate

Michel,

It has been quite a few years since I have used 2x4 stud walls for anything other than partitions. Edge distances such as what you are mentioning, headers, out-of-plane wind forces... It seemed like it was getting more and more difficult for any of these conditions to check out with 2x4s. I am just wondering if you are not trying to make a system-gone-by still work today.

Can anyone provide an alternate for SSTBs having a current ICC report for a type V residential shearwall holdown application. I'd like to stick with the
conventional 1-3/4 edge distance if at all possible.

Thanks in advance,

Michel Blangy
