Universal Forest Products, Inc. has launched a new structural frame system through one of its affiliates that purports to lower costs and provide flexibility to architects and builders.

The Intact Structural Frame combines engineered wood and a full-height anchoring system that connects the roof to the foundation (versus traditional systems that connect the walls to the foundation). This "exoskeleton" is suitable for use in regions that experience heavy snow, wind or seismic activity.
