IBC06 / CBC07 Stone veneer on metal studs

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
IBC2006 1405.6 listed specific requirement for attaching stone veneer up to 10" to concrete, masonry and stud walls.  It specifically mentioned wood studs with nails etc., but it did not say anything for metal studs.
Does IBC2006 allow stone veneer up to 10" be attached to metal studs?  Does anyone know if there is any specific requirement for the attachment, or is it up to the designer to justify any attachment (this is for SDC=D)?
Thanks for any info.
