I have a garage plan to provide a client, and believe that a 2' panel on
either side of a 16 ' garage door is sufficient and "standard" so that I
will not need engineering.
I live in Calif. and I believe that fits the requirement seismically and
standard construction practice.
I usually install 2 HD8 in each 5/8" plywood panel also.
I will call the Building Dept. no problem....just wanted input.
Yep, we have seimic to worry about and shear....
I believe it is a certain amount of shear ply in regards to opening.
I usually draw my plans, and submit them, and if engineering is needed I get
it taken care of.
I was mostly trying to refresh my memory....
I was with you until I hit the "I live in Calif." part, then my eyes
I am not familiar with the CA seismic requirements and fairly happy
about that. ;)
