Steel Strong-Wall® Shearwalls: Installation of Two-Story Stacked on Concrete Foundations
Do not cut the Steel Strong-Wall® or enlarge existing holes, doing so will compromise the performance of the wall.
Do not use an impact wrench to tighten nuts on the anchor bolts.
Maximum shim thickness between the Steel Strong-Wall and top plates is 7/8" using Simpson Strong-Tie® Strong-Drive® 1/4"x3 1/2" SDS Heavy-Duty Connector screws. For additional shim thicknesses, see detail 5/SSW2 and detail 9/SSW2.
