Steel Strong-Wall®: Cold-Formed Steel Two-Story Stacked on Concrete Foundations

46a-2010

A complete stacked-wall solution for two-story applications. Now there is a Steel Strong-Wall option for two-story cold-formed steel installations that combines simplified installation with superior performance.

  • Some of the highest loads in the industry, and design procedures that account for cumulative overturning.
  • Complete concrete anchorage designs for two-story applications (foundation design by Designer).
  • No bearing plates to install. Walls can be placed flush against a corner.
  • Same anchor bolt template as single-story installation.
  • Compression loads transferred by nut/rod.
