BEC-GD January 2019 Joint Program with CSI: Masonry Movement Joints

The national model masonry code requires building designers to “indicate type and location of movement joints on the project drawings.” Additionally, the veneer section of the code requires building designers to “design and detail the veneer to accommodate differential movement.”

Do you know the key differences between a CJ, EJ, IJ, BEJ? This seminar will teach you how to locate movement joints to accommodate or restrain building and material movement to avoid cracks or system failures. You will learn about control and expansion joints at corners, shelf angles, top-of-wall bond beams, loose & fixed lintels, cement-based veneers, load-bearing CMU walls, stair towers, and adhered veneers. You will also learn how to select proper sealant color.

Seminar Objectives
1) Learn masonry movement joint definitions.
2) Discover movement characteristics of different masonry materials.
3) Understand the purpose of movement joints and where to put them.
4) Acquire knowledge to design and detail both vertical and horizontal movement control strategies.
