Wooden Framework Walls


Are usually structural walls made of wood and stone masonry.


This type of walls usually have important structural functions in an old building, due to their special organization.


Even though they do not receive direct vertical loads, these walls play an important role in the general bracing of the structures, as they join the walls, floors and coverings, capital for the global resistence capacity of the building during an earthquake, dissipating its energy.

 

Due to their importance, wooden framework walls are a very special example of division walls and as we can find them all through the country they characterise the whole of the Marquis of Pombal construction.
