The Strong-Wall high-strength wood shear wall (WSWH) is a prefabricated solution from Simpson Strong-Tie for lateral-force resistance in light-frame construction. Made of laminated strand lumber with pre-attached hold-downs, WSWH can be trimmed in the field and can be used in standard, garage-portal, and balloon-framing applications. Top-of-wall shear transfer is accomplished with a single plate that is fastened with both Strong-Wall screws and heavy-duty connector screws. Pricing varies by size and shear capacity. strongtie.com
