RE: Knock-out Panel

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Rich,
Consider boxing it out like an opening. Use screw in rebar couplers with lapped splices. Provide a V joint in the interior perimeter of the wall to provide a positive shear key. Fill in the space with concrete "A" block, and grout all cells. The "A" block can be placed around the rebar. Use a rebar spacing that will work with CMU. The waterproofing should be a spray on coating applied from the outside. The fill behind the wall should be an open graded crushed rock to allow free draining to a perimeter drain.

Regards,
Harold Sprague

I am designing a concrete basement wall that is to have a knock-out panel
for a future opening.  I would appreciate any suggestion on the best way to
detail this to ensure waterproofing and ease of demolition in the future.



Thanks.



Rich
