ATTRIBUTION:

Functional Statement:

F20

To support and withstand expected loads and forces.

F22

To limit movement under expected loads and forces.

Objective:

OS2.1, OS2.3, OS2.5, OS2.3, OS2.5

 

APPLICATION:

Construction of dwarf walls acting as intermediate support for lumber roof joists and rafters, in wood-frame constructions to which Section 9.23. applies [see Sentence 9.23.1.1.(1) for application of Section 9.23.].

INTENT:

To limit the probability of an inability to resist expected gravity loads, which could lead to the excessive deflection or buckling failure of dwarf walls.
This is to limit the probability of compromised structural integrity, which could lead to:
  • the structural collapse of wood-frame construction,
  • where roof and ceiling framing members support required elements of environmental separators, the excessive deformation, displacement or failure of these elements, which could lead to deterioration, which could lead to further compromised structural integrity of roofs or environmental separators, or
  • where roof and ceiling framing members support assemblies exposed to the exterior, excessive water ingress, which could lead to deterioration.
This is to limit the probability of harm to persons.

OH1.1, OH1.2, OH1.3

 

APPLICATION:

Construction of dwarf walls acting as intermediate support for lumber roof joists and rafters, in wood-frame constructions to which Section 9.23. applies [see Sentence 9.23.1.1.(1) for application of Section 9.23.].

INTENT:

To limit the probability of an inability to resist expected gravity loads, which could lead to the excessive deflection or buckling failure of dwarf walls.
Where wood-frame construction supports or is part of an environmental separator, this is to limit the probability of the displacement or failure of required environmental separation elements, which could lead to:
  • condensation,
  • precipitation ingress,
  • excessive heat transfer,
  • pollutant ingress, or
  • compromised thermal performance of components intended to resist heat transfer.
This is to limit the probability of:
  • inadequate control of temperatures of interior spaces, drafts, relative humidity or water accumulation,
  • the generation of pollutants from biological growth or from materials that become unstable on wetting, or
  • deterioration, which could lead to further compromised integrity of environmental separators.
This is to limit the probability of:
  • negative effects on the air quality of indoor spaces,
  • the inadequate thermal comfort of persons, and
  • contact with moisture.
This is to limit the probability of harm to persons.
