Smart Components® are innovative truss-plated shear walls engineered to resist any lateral or vertical loads applied to a building. They offer a number of advantages over traditional framing, including:
- Project-specific engineering—Sealed designs that meet EOR demand loads are provided for every component on every project.
- Versatility—All components are designed and built to exact wall thickness, heights and lengths, and allow for most window and door openings.
- Reduced installation time—No on-site assembly and minimal connections make installation simple compared to conventional walls.
- Lower costs—Eliminates the need for expensive, time-consuming alternatives such as steel moment frames, proprietary shear panels and structural sheathing.
- Easy electrical access—Pre-drilled holes offer trouble-free electrical chase access.
- No job-site waste—Prefabricated components don’t require field modifications or adjustments.
