Re: Ladder on brick

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I would cut a neat opening through the veneer, extend the ladder bracket
through the veneer to a bolted connection directly to the CMU.  Then reset
brick masonry around the hole through the veneer.

Subject: Ladder on brick


| Can an exterior ladder be supported off a brick veneer if it does not have
| bottom support? I have a 4" brick veneer in front of an 8" CMU backup
wall,
| with an exterior ladder. The wall and veneer have already been installed
and
| an exterior ladder is to be installed at the exterior. I would prefer to
| support the ladder off the CMU wall but that would be more difficult.
| However, I am concerned with drilled-in anchors and induced moments in the
| brick veneer.
