Simpson Strong-Tie now offers a Steel Strong-Wall® panel option for garage portal systems which combines simplified installation with superior performance.
--Higher capacity with reduced concrete anchorage requirements (see Alternate Garage Front Options for other options)
--Same anchor bolt template
--Complete kit available to simplify the connection to the header or beam
--Portal Frame Connection Kit is required to achieve increased load values listed for portal frame system.
--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).
--Walls with 2x4 pre-attached studs may also be used in 2x6 wall framing. Install the wall flush to exterior face of the framing and add furring to the opposite side.
--Walls may be installed with solid or multi-ply headers, see detail 11/SSW2 (.pdf) for details.
