Strong-Wall® shearwalls are alternatives to the wider, braced walls required by the International Residential Code (IRC) and International Building Code (IBC) model building codes. Utilized as alternate means of meeting the intent of these codes, Strong-Wall shearwalls are narrower, code-listed walls that help Designers avoid the need for wider, site-built walls and/or engineered solutions.
