Do you know why you need noggings?
Noggings are required for various reasons in Tall Buildings, but most importantly, noggings provide the means for compliance to the National Construction Code (NCC).
- Noggings help achieve compliance with the NCC fire-rated walls requirements
- Noggings assist in compliance to NCC structural requirements
- Noggings prevent rotation of the wall stud which is a potential cause of noise within the wall under structural movement
- Noggings provide lateral relief to the wall linings, allowing the head track more freedom to move with the structure it is fixed to, and limits the propensity to clamp the wall studs and induce movement into the wall panels
