Temporary bracing

Photo of timbers leaning against an external wall frame to provide temporary bracing.During construction, temporary bracing is necessary to support wind and construction loads on the building. Temporary bracing must be equivalent to at least 60% of permanent bracing required. Temporary bracing may form part of the installed permanent bracing.

Note: The wind forces on unclad frames (under construction) may be equal to or even greater than those on a completed clad or veneered house.
