The perimeter and field details found here have been seismically tested and engineered to meet seismic code requirements set by IBC (International Building Code), CBC (California Building Code), ASCE-7, and ASTM. Here you will find the most common details for Seismic Categories C, D, E, & F that meet the intent of ASCE-7 and ASTM E580.

We strive to support the architectural and contractor community with the most current and accurate perimeter details, lateral force bracing details, and alternate-to-code details, available in both Revit and PDF versions.
