Detail and Object Sections

Sometimes, a complete building or wall section cannot be drawn large enough to fully explain a portion of the assembly. Or there might be items that are not tied to the building structure in such a way that the wall section needs to be included in the drawing. These might include handrails, as shown in Figure 8-14, or objects such as cabinets and furniture. In such cases, a detailed section or partial section is drawn at a large scale to clearly show the items, as seen in Figure 8-15. The scale of details and partial section drawings is usually a minimum of V2" = l'-O" (1:20 metric) and can range to a drawing scaled to full size. These detailed sections are cross-referenced to other drawings, indicating where the assembly is located within the whole.
