Revision of C216-17a Standard Specification for Facing Brick (Solid Masonry Units Made from Clay or Shale)

Keywords

None Provided

Rationale

The purpose of this ballot is to provide a manufacturing tolerance for units with a dimension greater than 16 inches (406 mm). The results from a poll conducted of Brick Industry Association manufacturer members were nearly 50/50 on developing additional tolerances for units with a dimension greater than 16 inches (406 mm). Discussions with mason contractors and their representatives revealed concerns with the installation of units with greater tolerances than what currently exist in C216. Therefore, the proposed change is to remove the upper end maximum dimension of 16 inches (406 mm).
