Light Gauge Steel Stud Backup for brick

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Is there a minumum thickness code requirement for light gauge steel studs used as backup for brick such as 16 gauge? From a practical standpoint, will 18 gauge be thick enough to resist the pull of the brick tie?
