The framing is further strengthened by the bolts on each side of the doorposts.
This is a very strong partition, and adapted for bearing, if necessary, the weight of the floor above it, which latter is shown in dotted lines.
A partition of this form is said to be " one-fourth trussed," signifying that the upper truss occupies that proportion of the whole depth.
The partition in Fig. 3 12 1 is sustained by the king-post truss over the doorways, from which hangs the lower portion of the framing.
The floor below is dotted in order to show the pieces (x) which are framed in between the joists to form a support to the feet of the doorposts.
