Smart Components® Shear Wall Benefits
Smart Components® Shear Wall Panels are quality controlled, prefabricated trussed frames, engineered to resist wind and seismic lateral forces applied to wall structures. Integrating traditional truss construction and All-Thread Rod Technology, Smart Components® shear wall panels are desiged to meet the critical demand loads for each project, while providing architects and engineers the ultimate design flexibility. Our shear wall panels replace structural wall sheathing, costly conventional shear walls and steel moment frames, resulting in:
- Reduced construction cycle time
- Lower labor costs
- Easier installation
- Reduced nail penetration
- Less job site waste
- Greater aspect ratios and per-linear-foot capacity than conventional shear walls
- The elimination of special shear inspections
Smart Components® Shear Wall Panel Configurations
Smart Components® Shear Wall Panels are manufactured to fit each unique project and each framer’s individual framing preferences. Shear wall panel configurations include portals, portals with non-structural sills, narrow panels and multi-segmented panels. All shear wall panels are custom designed to dimensionally match project specific wall heights, lengths, widths and openings, ensuring the most efficient design and effective solution.
