New Practice for Installation Methods for Adhered Veneer Systems Using Thin Brick Units Made from Clay or Shale

1. Scope

This practice is intended to provide accepted installation procedures for thin brick units in adhered veneer systems in either residential and commercial construction. This information is intended to complement specific installation instructions provided by manufacturers of thin brick units and thin brick adhered systems and recognized building codes, but is not meant to replace them. This practice is limited to the installation of units and accessory items. This practice does not address installation methods or techniques for all materials that are a part of the building envelope. Although moisture management is an important part of any building design, this practice does not cover all flashing or moisture management requirements. Refer to the applicable building code and project documents for additional flashing and moisture management requirements.

This practice covers the installation of thin brick units and accessory items for both exterior and interior adhered veneer applications including walls, columns, landscape structures, and other structures suitable to receive adhered veneer. See Sections 11.3 and 11.4 for limitations. This practice does not cover the installation of thin brick units embedded in concrete. The units included in this practice are manufactured to meet the requirements of Specification C1088.
