Wood Strong-Wall®: Installation of Standard Wall on Concrete Foundations

Technical and Installation Notes

  • 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.
