Strong-Wall® High-Strength Wood Shearwall Portal Frame Connection Kit 

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

The WSWH-PK Strong-Wall® wood shearwall portal frame connection kit works with Strong-Wall high-strength wood shearwalls (WSWH) to achieve increased load values for portal frame systems. While this connection kit comes standard with panels that are 100" or less in height, the kit is also available separately for projects that require walls that exceed 100" to be used as part of a portal frame system. The portal frame connection kit is required to achieve increased load values listed for the portal frame system.
