Clay Tile CMU

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I have a situation in which the customer has requested extending an existing
interior corridor wall up to the floor deck above. The corridor wall consists
of hollow clay tile and presently terminates 6" above the existing finished
ceiling. The distance between the top of the wall and the floor deck underside
is approximately 24". One option is adding three courses of CMU. Another
option is install CFS studs with track and apply gypsum wallboard at each
side. Regarding the second option, has anyone had any experience with
attaching or anchoring material to hollow clay tile(i.e., Tapcon screws,
anchor bolts, etc.)?
