Thermal Breaks for Brick Shelf Angles


The Brick Industry Association (BIA) has an article in their most recent issue of Brick in Architecture magazine which includes information and detailing of thermal breaks for brick shelf angles in veneer construction over cold-formed steel.  

The article begins on page 9; the section entitled “Thermal Design” begins near the end of page 13, and the details are on pages 12 and 13.
BIA has recommended that AISI reference this article in their upcoming rewrite of the steel stud brick veneer design guide; I found out about it in a memo received this morning with a BIA review of the old design guide.

One Response so far.

  1. I want to add some follow-up correspondence on this article, which is the the detail shown isn't fully designed. The examples provided are conceptual in nature, provided by leaders of the SEI-AISC Thermal Bridging Task Group.
