AS 1684.1 sets out the basis for calculating timber sizes and forces to be resisted by tie-down and bracing. It provides a standard reference for designers and product manufacturers to produce compatible engineering solutions. Details of the standards must be obtained from Standards Australia.
Due to wide use of the Standard and new residential designs not covered by the Standard, further amendments or additions are necessary to maintain the Standard's relevancy. Users of the Standard should ensure that they refer to the latest edition.
Current amendments to AS 1684.1: Amendment No 1 February 2002
