Doors & Openings
The structural integrity of doors and openings is achieved by placing additional fastening and reinforced framing around them.
This framing is typically made by using boxed SRP™ Stud, extra SRP™ Stud, higher BMT SRP™ Stud, un-punched SRP™ Whisperwall™ Stud for SRP™ Whisperwall™ and/or timber framing.
NOTE: Only untreated timber framing shall be used in direct contact with any galvanized SRP™ products. If it is unavoidable to use treated timber, a separation barrier between the galvanized SRP™ product and the treated timber shall be used.
The standard details, noted below in any combination [see examples in FIGURE 23] are applicable, for door openings max 1000mm wide [max door size 900x2000 45kg] and internal partition window openings up to 1500mm wide, used in maximum of 3m tall partitions [see below FIGURE 20] constructed using minimum 63.5mm SRP™ Studs. Ensure that opening size allows for timber or aluminium joinery dimensions. Doors or openings in taller partitions or with sizes outside of the above dimensions or top hung doors/openings require specific design.
