Wood Strong-Wall®: Installation of Standard Wall on Concrete Foundations
Drilling or cutting holes in Wood Strong-Wall® is not allowed except as shown in the Structural Details and the Allowable Hole Chart attached to each wall.
For holdowns, per ASTM standards, anchor bolt nuts should be finger-tight plus 1/3 to 1/2 turn with a hand wrench, with consideration given to possible future wood shrinkage. Care should be taken to avoid over-torquing the nut. An impact wrench should not be used.
Walls may also be used in 2x6 wall framing. Install the sheathing side at the exterior wall line and add furring to the interior framing side.
