AIBD CEWall bracing webinar: Building wood frame structures for high wind resistance.

Thursday, October 16, 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm (EDT)

CLICK HERE to register.

For wind design, prescriptive wall bracing is limited to homes in regions with wind speeds less than 110 mph. This webinar will provide a top to bottom overview of wind resistant methods for wood framed structures located in higher wind zones. The overall strength of a building is a function of all of the components – roof, walls, floors, and foundation – working together as a unit. Construction of durable box-type structures will be illustrated along with important connections along the critical load-path. Presented the wall bracing experts at the APA.
