Update complete on Technical Note 28C

Provides design and construction information on the use of thin brick

By

A major revision to Technical Note 28C on Thin Brick Veneer and an updated Technical Notes Index were added to the BIA website.

Technical Note 28C: Thin Brick Veneer provides design and construction information on the use of thin brick in adhered veneer systems. Methods of thin brick construction discussed include thick set, thin set, modular panels, and prefabricated panels consisting of architectural precast concrete, tilt-up concrete, and wood or steel stud frame panels.

Major topics presented in Technical Note 28C include properties of thin brick veneer, system descriptions, system selection, system design, materials, installation, and maintenance. Specific recommendations for design are provided for water-resistive barriers, means of drainage, flashing/weep screeds, foundations, deflection, movement joints, continuous insulation, thin brick units, reinforcing lath and mesh, mortar, flashing, and cement backer board. Information on the installation and maintenance of thin brick veneer systems is also provided.

With the completion of the revision of Technical Note 28C, the entire 28 series on masonry veneer has been updated within the last few years.
