--SSWPS straps must be installed on exterior face of the Steel Strong-Wall® panel. Position header flush with exterior face of the Steel Strong-Wall panel.
--Do not cut the Steel Strong-Wall or enlarge existing holes. Doing so will compromise the performance of the wall.
--Do not use an impact wrench to tighten nuts on the anchor bolts.
--Maximum shim thickness between the Steel Strong-Wall and header is 7/8" using Simpson Strong-Tie® Strong-Drive® 1/4"x3 1/2" screws (SDS).
