A nogging (or occasionally noggin) is a strut used to give rigidity to a framework, fixed between joists or studs to their increase strength and stiffness. They are commonly used to brace floors or to stiffen timber stud frames.

Noggings are typically made of timber, but they may also be made of metal or other materials.

In Scotland, noggings may be referred to as ‘dwangs’.
