Hardy Frame prefabricated narrow shear wall panel


The new narrow shear wall panel from Hardy Frame, a MiTek company, is designed to allow users to pick up 3′ of space on each garage side and add more living space. The 9″ panels are said to enable a faster and easier garage build. With the panel’s C-shaped cavity, it is designed to be easy to inspect, easy to install and eliminate callbacks. The panel was developed to enable narrower walls, and to maximize the square footage in a smaller space. For example, a home can be built on a smaller lot and gain 80 square feet. www.hardyframe.com
