Hardy Frames, Inc. is pleased to announce that effective December 1, 2010 LA City Research Report, RR-25759 has been reissued to include the attachment of our current Evaluation Service Report, ESR-2089. The reevaluation date is January 1, 2012. The following are the main highlights:

  1. Added 9 inch Panel widths (up to 8 foot nominal height)
  2. Added Panels in Balloon Wall Applications (one-piece welded assembly)
  3. Evaluation Scope now includes the new 2011 LABC code.

We have been working on these new products for some time. Nobody has a pre-manufactured shear wall as narrow and nobody has a Balloon Wall application with the kind of loads and performance that we have. Our current HFX-Series Product Catalog (4-10) is still in effect, is still the recommended source of reference and all Panels presented in the catalog have been code evaluated.
