I have a "simple" task: Design anchor bolts to mount a dozen 5' tall camera poles to a concrete coping on top of a brick wall. The project manager doesn't know if there are any drawings of the wall; of course, he didn't measure anything or take photos. Anyway, from Google Street View it looks like the coping is 4" thick; for now I'm assuming the wall is all brick, 3 wythes thick. According to Hilti Profis, I need 2.375" anchors in 2.75" deep holes in the coping. My gut feeling says the coping is just attached with mortar and nothing else, which makes me uneasy. What I would like to do is anchor the coping stone into the brick wall using either option in my sketch but, I can find anything on post-installed anchor design in brick for this situation. I was going to use Appendix D/Chapter 17, with a big grain of salt. Any thoughts?
