I am being told by a contractor client that many pole building contractors screw metal roof panels to EVERY OTHER purlin, and metal wall panels to EVERY OTHER girt. I find absolutely no diaphragm nor shear wall test results that allow this. Has anyone seen tables or test results where metal panels are not screwed to every submember?
