Brick veneer attachment IBC

Brick veneer attachment IBC

Brick veneer attachment IBC

I am familiar with brick veneer attachment requirements per IRC (residential). What section on the IBC (commercial) lists connection requirements for brick veneer attached to wood framing?

RE: Brick veneer attachment IBC

Are you looking for a prescriptive spacing or just the general requirements? I domt know off the top of my head if anything is explicitly stated in the masonry chapter. But I'd start there and I'd also check with ACI 530. They have an entire chapter on veneer. Someone else may know if it's hidden in one of the arch dominant chapters.

RE: Brick veneer attachment IBC

@mike: I am specifically after spacing of ties requirement. Thank you.

RE: Brick veneer attachment IBC

Section 1405.6 refers you to ACI 530. Corrugated ties are typically acceptable for residential but not commercial. There are cavity gap length restrictions (1" max) and load restrictions in compression.

RE: Brick veneer attachment IBC

Yes - IBC refers out to ACI 530 - there is an "Anchored Veneer" chapter there that specifies tie spacing.
