Wall Sections

A section that is drawn at a large scale to show the specifics of an interior or exterior building wall is called a wall section (Figure 8-12). The wall section is often keyed to the main building section and permits the designer to enlarge and show more clearly the details for that particular wall, such as the floor and ceiling systems. Again, more than one wall section is often required to delineate the uniqueness of a design or construction assembly. The scale of the drawing depends upon the details to be shown and the paper size. Generally, wall sections are drawn at a scale of !4" = l'-O" to 1V2" = l'-O" (1:20 to 1:10 metric). It is desirable to draw the wall section in its entirety from the bottom of the wall to the top. However, if the sheet size does not allow this, the section can be cut in one or more areas (where large areas of the wall have the same construction) with break lines to compress the drawing to fit the paper size (Figure 8-13).
