Simpson Strong-Wall

The Strong-Wall is part of Simpson Strong-Tie’s “whole-systems” approach to building design and construction. These prefabricated shearwalls are designed and engineered to offer design flexibility with greater lateral-force resistance and load support. Quick and easy to install, these factory-built shearwalls are a cost effective alternative to site-built shearwalls. Strong-Wall shearwalls are narrower and available in a full array of code-listed Wood and Steel Strong-Wall shearwalls.
