5 Strategies to Help you Design Structural Masonry Walls

0.5 LU/HSW: Nano Series

Tuesday, August 04, 2020| 12:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time

 

Build upon or expand your current knowledge of structural masonry and bring value to your next project by designing and detailing efficient masonry walls. We’ll investigate masonry codes and use case study examples to illustrate how to achieve high compressive strength, detail recommendations, and creative ideas that you can implement on your next project for a more cost effective, resilient, and schedule friendly masonry solution.

Appearance Expectations for Masonry: Light and Shadows

0.5 LU/HSW: Nano Series

Tuesday, August 11, 2020| 12:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time

 

Masonry is often chosen for use in buildings because of its aesthetics. But what happens when the appearance expectations for various masonry materials or wall assemblies are not met? We’ll provide tips and best practices so that appearance doesn’t become an issue in the first place. Learn how downlighting on interior and exterior walls can impact the look of masonry. We’ll discuss how to correctly use the 20' rule and touch on color ranges of materials, mortar joint profiles, and chippage of materials.

6 Key Masonry Cavity Wall Interface Details

0.5 LU/HSW: Nano Series

Tuesday, August 18, 2020| 12:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time

 

Get an overview of 6 newly created IMI details for anchored masonry veneer cavity walls. Details include: base-of-wall, window sill, window head, shelf angle, roof-to-wall, and top-of-wall. We’ll discuss how these key details manage water, air, vapor and thermal elements and review options for selecting masonry wall assembly components. Walk away with an understanding of the resources available to you in designing your next masonry project.

Shelf Angle Detailing: Design & Construction Considerations

0.5 LU/HSW: Nano Series

Tuesday, August 25, 2020| 12:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time

 

Buildings of a certain height may require one or more shelf angles for the purpose of creating a horizontal movement joint within the masonry veneer. The primary function is to accommodate movement that occurs within the veneer and between the structure and the masonry veneer. The shelf angle also becomes a point where water can exit the wall assembly and support flashing. In this session, we’ll review various design and construction considerations when detailing a shelf angle consisting of movement control, moisture management, thermal performance, strategies for optimizing shelf angle location, constructability with interfacing components, and accommodating construction tolerances.
