What Makes Jonda’s Adjustable Noggins Different from Others

March 26, 2020

Noggin is a horizontal bracing piece that is used between wall studs or floor joists. The purpose of this construction piece is to give rigidity to the wall or floor frames of a building. Noggins are usually made from timber, steel, or aluminium.

Remarkable Facts about Noggins

As mentioned, noggins are useful in giving rigid property to the wall or floor frames of a building. They help in straightening out wall studs and floor joists and providing a strong fixing for something that will be fixed on the structure in the future.

A noggin can be placed in an interior stud-work wall to provide a solid fixing for the toilet cistern to screw to, a radiator, or a huge smart TV that will be installed to the wall later on. A noggin is essential in walls to carry the edges of plasterboard sheets for the joints to be strong and durable. A noggin can also be used in floor structures. Extra noggins are installed to carry the load and edge of a shower tray or a non-load bearing wall that is landed between joists.

Noggins Installation and Application

Taking the measurements for your noggins at the end of the studs or joists where they would meet with the wall plate is far more effective than measuring where they will actually be placed. Taking this type of measurement will ensure your studs to straighten up and become parallel with one another once your noggins are installed.

Normal bridging in a wall can be fixed in a straight line, where one end can be nailed straight from the back of the stud. Alternatively, the other end must be skew nailed at an angle since the previous block is in the way of nailing straight.

Staggered noggin is used when the blocks don’t need to carry the edges of sheet material. Staggering the bridging of floor joists allows you to install much quicker since you don’t need to skew nail on one end. With staggered bridging, both ends of the floor joists can be fixed straight through the back the stud or joist.
