Uninterrupted height of masonry cladding to light steel framing (P426)

39

Masonry cladding is commonly used on load-bearing light steel framed buildings. The masonry cladding is generally supported from the ground or a podium structure and the light steel frame provides lateral support to the cladding. Depending on the height of the masonry cladding, it may be designed to be vertically supported by the structural frame at specified intermediate floor levels. However, it is technically and economically beneficial to consider designing taller heights of ground- or podium- supported masonry cladding to light steel frames. See more information
