mortar bed reinforcement

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
What are the advantages of truss-type reinforcement vs ladder-type in mortar beds in CMU wall construction?
Opinions on is it really worth it for normal, everyday CMU walls, low(ish) shear, under 4 stories?
Is it worth the extra cost to specify?
 
Thanks in advance,
Andrew
