Wall frames are typically manufactured from timber, and together with roof and floor trusses form the rigidity and support of a buildings structure. They also ensure that a building is weatherproof, and perform the all important task of bearing the load of the roofing and trusses. The outer wall frames are therefore considered load bearing structures and cannot be altered in any major way – they are integral to the structure of the building.
Wall frames are manufactured in a range of materials, with timber and steel being the most common. Timber is widely utilised, and is an energy efficient and sustainable resource - which makes timber wall frames a cost effective option for any building construction project. Wall frames are typically custom-designed and delivered to site ready for erection. The other option is to have solid masonry walls, which are more costly though arguably more durable. Timber wall frames, and the area they sit on must be chemically treated to make them resistant to rot, moisture and insect damage.
A major consideration when designing any building is the ceiling and wall insulation, which ensures that the building is energy efficient. This ensures the comfort of the building occupants as well as reducing unnecessary energy usage.
