Dear Sir,
     The minimum thickness of load bearing wall is 9''.

Load Bearing Walls

The walls that support beams and roof slabs. 
  •  These walls take the load of super structure and transmit it to the ground through foundation. 
  •  These can also serve the purpose of dividing the space into required rooms etc.
  • These are also accommodating door and windows where required. 
  • These are of 9” or more thickness.
  • Such walls are made in first class bricks and rich mortar.

Load Bearing Walls


Non Load Bearing Walls

  • These walls serve the purpose of dividing the space into required rooms etc.
  • These are also accommodating door and windows where required.  
  •  These can be made into thin sections to save the space.
  • Non load bearing walls are only partition having no load of super structure so these can be easily changed whenever required to change the space of the room. 
  • These walls are made 3 inches, 4.5 inches and 9 inches thick as per the requirement of the site.

Non Load Bearing Walls
