Has anybody ever designed a Wood Firewall? What type of connectors do you use for it to breakaway? I am using a wood wall as a bearing wall. My headers sit on the stud pack in the wall. What type of connection could I use for the headers to break away in the event of a fire? The wall is 2 hr rated.
Thank you in advance for your response
