Step 4: Temporary bracing of web member plane

Temporary bracing of the web member plane is usually installed at the same location specified on
the engineering plan for permanent bracing. Permanent lateral web bracing should be called out
on the truss design to reduce the buckling length of the individual web members. The bracing can
form part of the temporary and permanent web bracing system. Sets of diagonal bracing should
not be spaced more than 6 m apart (clear space between end of one set of braces and start of
another set).
