    4x1" par timber approximatly 1m long to fit over 3 studs assuming they are at 400 centres with a bit extra incase the other wall studs are slightly different position

    lay the timber on the floor find the 3 studs each side move the timber untill the centres are opposit and on or equal distance from the centre stud
    secure to the studs with no 10x3"[ 5mmx 80mm] 2 on each off the three studs at the required height

    the above assumes normal timber studs of around 4x2" at 400mm centres
