iLevel® Shear Brace
Walls do more for a house than hold up the weight of the roof. They also have to stand strong against forces of nature that can come from any side.
Structural wall bracing protects life and property against damage from lateral (sideways) forces. That's why more and more municipalities are enforcing International Residential Code (IRC) requirements for wall bracing. Some high-wind or earthquake-prone regions even require that a structural engineer of record (EOR) design every house built in their jurisdictions.
In addition to the technical literature, our Engineering Support staff has created a number of Technical Bulletins to help you in using the Shear Brace. iLevel® Shear Brace delivers outstanding lateral force resistance. They are easy to work with and install, and they meet or exceed code requirements for both engineered and prescriptive design.
