The Strong-Wall high-strength wood shearwall raised floor kit is designed to be a complete solution for use with Strong-Wall high-strength wood shearwalls on wood floor systems. The kit is used by extending the anchor bolts and installing compression nuts and solid blocking below the wall. The WSWH raised floor kit includes threaded rods, coupler nuts, heavy hex nuts and a shear transfer plate that improves performance of the Strong-Wall high-strength shearwalls in this application.
