The PFS double-wall portal frame kit provides all the necessary hardware to build a double-wall portal frame system to meet code-required wall-bracing requirements with narrow wall widths. Simple and quick to install, the PFS is a cost-effective alternative to IRC braced-wall solutions.
Narrow wall width — allows builders to maintain narrow return and Designers to maximize portal openings
Easy to assemble — saves time for the installer and increases the confidence of the specifier that it will be installed properly
Cost effective — site-built portal frames are less expensive than prefabricated shearwalls or moment frames
Equivalent wall length — Designers need as much equivalent wall length as possible to economically design structures
