I've never heard of such a thing, and all I can find on google are
websites pertaining to paintball guns... Please, explain.

I use Nylatron bolts as a structural fuse connection.

Hello all,



Someone has probably brought this up before, but perhaps not.  How are
you all handling the sections of the code which require fire walls to
remain standing if the building portion on either side collapses from a
fire (Section 705.2, for example)?  I have seen a detail that shows an
essentially complete gravity load resisting wall system on each side,
thus creating a three-walled fire wall system.  This seems like
overkill.



Thanks,
