Wood Strong-Wall® Shearwalls: Standard Wall on Concrete Foundations

The Wood Strong-Wall shearwall can be installed around window and door openings, on garage wing walls, interior walls or any other locations where increased lateral resistance is required. Wood Strong-Wall panels can reduce the amount of wall space required for shearwalls, allowing for more windows and doors in house designs.

See installation information and Structural Details.

 

Original Wood Strong-Wall Rationalization

The original Wood Strong-Wall shearwalls are being phased out. Simpson Strong-Tie will guarantee availability until June 30, 2018. We currently have two prefabricated shearwalls that can be used as replacements: the Strong-Wall Wood Shearwall and the Steel Strong-Wall.
