A nogging is a horizontal bracing piece that is used in stud wall frames to prevent twisting of the studs during the installation of the lining boards. This form of bridging provides a strong rigid frame for the plasterboard and prevents cracks in the plasterboard joints. Noggings also provide extra support to the wall construction, and in some instances a more cost-effective design can be achieved by using noggings.
Studco® offer a range of nogging products to suit a variety of uses and save installation time.
When should I use noggings in my wall?
The use of noggings is to provide extra support to the wall construction and to prevent twisting of the studs during the installation of the lining boards.
Please refer to table 58 on page 38 of the Studco Design Manual, or contact our Technical Team to check if your project needs noggings.
