The TJ Shear Brace is a tested performer against seismic activity and high winds. It is easy to install and trim on the jobsite. Its trimmability makes the TJ Shear Brace an ideal solution for rake walls and makes everyday jobsite modifications easy to handle. All braces can be trimmed down to 74.5”.
The TJ Shear Brace is the first pre-fabricated shear panel to receive ICC-ES 2009 IBC/IRC code compliance verification (ESR-2652). Architects and engineers can have increased confidence that their designs meet the latest building code requirements. Newly updated, the ICC-ES Evaluation Report addresses the use of TJ Shear Braces in both prescriptive and engineered solutions for tall walls up to 20 feet high and two-story structures.
