Program Description

Anchored masonry veneer wall systems are commonly used throughout North America in residential, commercial and institutional construction. These exterior masonry veneers are non-load-bearing and are usually assumed to be little more than an exterior finish of building envelope. Using prescriptive design methods, masonry veneer can be supported vertically by foundations for heights less than 30 feet, or supported by the building frame for taller structures. The purpose of this presentation will to present a design methodology for the vertical support of masonry veneers under the current building code provisions, especially in light of the increasing cavity width being specified for higher prescriptive insulation levels.

Learning Objectives

  • Understanding of the Code requirements for vertical veneer support.
  • Learn about the consequence of inadequate vertical support of veneers
  • Understand proper design methodology for the vertical support of masonry veneers.
  • Attendees will become knowledgeable on a number of design examples for proper shelf angle supports.
