For standard houses, with a wind classification N1 or N2, brace at all supports with Type 1 braces at 1800mm centres, Type 2 at 2400mm or as specified. This applies to internal and external bearing points.

For non-standard houses or houses with a wind classification greater than N2, refer to your supplier for further information.

In all situations, bracing must be distributed as evenly as possible throughout the house.
