Where planks span on to a wall from both sides a minimum wall thickness
of 190mm is recommended. Where a wall thickness of 190mm cannot be Bearing details for large steels
achieved a tie should be provided at the support. (N.B. the wall thickness
should never be less than 140mm in this situation). In order to satisfy the
tolerance for this situation a narrow support should only be used at one
end of the plank. Note: A shared bearing can also be achieved by the use
of a metal 'bearing plate' together with the tie detail shown above.
