RE: Rock Veneer Support on timber

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Take a look at Chapter 6 (Veneer) in the 2005 Masonry Code (aka ACI 530).
It has some provisions for vertical support of masonry veneer.

Thanks to David, David and Buddy,
I will look into the link from Buddy.  I didn't think there was any more
restrictions, however you never know with this code where some little
paragraph can be hidden. Joe

No other restrictions of which I am aware. However, there's some additional
information on deflection criteria for stud walls backing veneers in a
recent Structure Magazine article by the list's own Harold
Sprague:

btw, this article resulted from a discussion on this listserver that Harold
so eloquently answered that we turned it into an article.

I have a situation where I have an exterior stud wall that is covered with
rock veneer. The wall has a low parapet, just a couple of feet above the
roof, where the veneer will also be located on the interior face of the
parapet. I can't find anything in the IBC that would tell me I can't support
the small height of rock veneer, on the interior of the parapet, by a ledger
of some sort, which will be attached to the stud wall. 2304.12 tells me that
I have to check the wood members for long term deflection. Is there any
restrictions that I haven't found? Thanks, Joe Grill
