Many types of masonry walls require proper capping to help extend the life of the wall, minimize maintenance and contribute to sustainability. After safety concerns are remediated, the highest priority should be protecting the horizontal facing surfaces. At penetrations roof, below grade or wall• These systems can be effective in reducing the amount of water penetration into the masonry; however, they should not be relied upon to eliminate water penetration.
Matching is critical so that the new materials do not cause unexpected future damage. Type FBA units are typically used to create a rustic appearance with a high dimensional tolerance.
Rate and condition of ventilation air moving across the system Each of these characteristics must be considered during the design phase of a project, and should be carefully evaluated with regard to the geographic region, climate, orientation, and exposure that is specific to each project.
Depending on the project stage for the design team, the commissioning agent should peer-review one initial set of the Design Development drawings and outline specifications pertaining to the building enclosure and provide a written summary of issues and concerns noted during this review. The level of the influence depends on the controls, output capacity, and distribution effectiveness. Acoustics Because of the mass, masonry wall systems can provide better sound insulation than lighter wall systems such as metal panels.
Elements within the wet zone of the building outbound of the final drainage plane or barrier are allowed to become wet.each and every loading must be controlled or resisted i. It should be evident from this list of loadings Enclosure Masonry Wall Systems Worldwide the design or analysis of the enclosure involves consideration of not only the usual structural loadings but also mass air, moisture, etc.
The enclosure is only one part of the larger system that moderates or controls the environments on both sides especially the inside of the enclosure at some location on the building.
The units can be made to various dimensions, but typically have face dimensions of 8 inches high by 16 inches wide nominal.
Additional as shown in the diagram above are considered effective in diverting moisture outside the wall system.
The design parameters should be conveyed in the contract documents and then checked throughout the submittal process.
An internal drainage plane that is intended to function as the primary line of defense against uncontrolled rainwater penetration.
