BS 5268-6.1:1996 gives recommendations for the design, testing, fabrication and erection of timber frame walls for dwellings not exceeding four storeys and consisting of timber frame walls, with studs not exceeding 610 mm centre to centre and one or both faces of the studs being partly or wholly connected to sheathing, lining, gusset plates or other forms of bracing.

Although the information on racking resistance given in this Section of BS 5268 is restricted to wall panels no greater in height than 2.7 m, it is not intended that it should be so restrictive where wall panels are not subject to racking forces or where racking resistance can be justified by other means. All structural materials are assumed to be subject only to service classes 1 and 2 as defined in BS 5268-2.

The design information contained in this Section of BS 5268 may also be relevant to other types of building where the storey heights, proportions and configuration are similar to those covered by this Section of BS 5268.
