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).
