WSW-HSR Strong-Wall® Wood Shearwall High-Strength Rod Kit


On This Page

The WSWH high-strength wood shearwall is replacing the WSW wood shearwall. WSWH accessories are compatible only with WSWH panels; use WSW accessories with WSW panels.

The WSW-HSR is designed to work with WSW-AB and WSW-ABHS anchor bolts for attaching Strong-Wall wood shearwalls to concrete foundations. This high-strength rod kit allows for anchorage in tall stem wall applications where full embedment of a Strong-Wall wood shearwall anchor bolt into the footing is required. The head is stamped for identification with a No-Equal® symbol for identification, bolt length, bolt diameter and “HS” for high strength. The WSW-HSR is not for use in place of WSW-AB(HS) anchor bolts.

Key Features

  • Fixed-in-place compression nut to improve performance
  • Head stamp for easy identification and inspection
  • High-strength coupler for attachment to WSW-AB(HS)
