    Revision of C1242 - 12ae1 Standard Guide for Selection, Design, and Installation of Dimension Stone Attachment Systems

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: C1242 - 14

    Developed by Subcommittee: C18.06 | Committee C18 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK45244

    1. Rationale

    C1242s current section 6. Anchor Types does not list, describe, or reference all the anchor diagrams included in the standard. Current figures depicting anchor types, when added to C1242 more than a decade ago, intended to be stand-alone details that could be excerpted out of the standard. This strategy fails to invoke the rest of the critical information and must be changed. To begin the re-organization, the subcommittee resolved to simplify notations on the diagram and to develop recommendations within the text of section 6. This ballot applies the subcommittees content changes and re-organization for the dowel anchor. Attached page A is the current C1242 page 2 showing Figure 1 Dowel Anchor, on the same page as section 2 Referenced Documents, in type so small it is not legible. Attached page B is the current Figure 1 Dowel Anchor enlarged to attempt to make it legible for reference. Attached page C is the current C1242 page 6 showing text for section 6. Anchor Types, yet the entire section omits reference to Figure 1 Dowel Anchor and omits descriptive recommendations for this anchor.
