Culvert, screen and outfall manual, (CIRIA C786) published by CIRIA in 2019, defines bracing as: ‘Additional strengthening provided for long screen bars that might otherwise be bent in use or as a result of vandalism. Bracing should be recessed so that it does not interfere with movement of cleaning rake.’

Where a screen is: ‘An arrangement of bars, grids or poles placed in a watercourse.’
