Drywall Steel Framing - Shaft wall

"Walls that enclose elevator shafts, stairwells and other vertical shafts are the lifeline of a building. Should a fire occur, firefighters control the use of elevators, leaving stairwells as the only means for occupant egress or rescue within the building. Since these walls are an important part of the building, they must have the strength to withstand lateral loads and provide needed fire protection."
