    Question Subflooring panel on wall

    This may be a dumb question but I'm curious if 3/4" thick 4'x 8' subflooring panel can be use on the inside wall of my garage.

    Sure, but why would you want to?

    3/8" or 1/2" should more than suffice if you're looking for shear value. I was involved in a second story addition to a home in San Jose shortly after the massive Loma Prieta quake and we had to shear the heck out of the place, nothing was over 1/2" and the place was spec'd by an engineer.

    When I bought my house last year, there are bunch of brand new subflooring panels that were to be install on workshop floor but the contractor refuse to do it due to rotted joist.

    I replace all the rotted joists and install the subflooring myself. I was surprise to have 10 sheets left over.

    I couldn't sell them or throw them away. So I figure, what the heck use it on garage wall.

    Thanks.

    By the way, Thanks for the info on wall timer.

    I went to many Home Depot and Lowes around Charlotte NC area. They don't even sell the exact item I want so I had to get one on eBay[ brand new ]. I think they're hard to find in USA.

    You're welcome .... it's surprising to not find them around.

    I was wondering if that's why you were asking. Like canuk said, go for it.

    One thing not mentioned, they're not fire rated.
