Description
Description

A cavity composite masonry wall integrates two distinct wythes, commonly a single brick layer and a single Concrete Masonry Unit (CMU) layer, separated by a gap or cavity. This design aims to combine the aesthetic appeal of brick with the cost-effective and versatile nature of CMU. The intervening cavity plays a pivotal role in moisture prevention, ensuring that dampness doesn't permeate the interior spaces. Additionally, it provides enhanced thermal insulation by leveraging the air gap as a barrier to heat transfer. The two wythes are tied together at intervals using wall ties, ensuring structural cohesion while maintaining the cavity's integrity and purpose.

Dimensions & Sizes

Cavity Composite Masonry Walls are constructed with typical overall wall depths of 11.25”-15.25” (28.6-38.7 cm) and a wall cavity of 2”-4” (5.1-10.2 cm). Tie spacings are set a maximum of 36” (91 cm) horizontally and 18” (46 cm) vertically. Overall heights of Cavity Composite Masonry Walls are commonly between 8’-16’ (2.44-4.88 m) with wall lengths of 12’-32’ (3.66-9.75 m).

Masonry walls are made by stacking individual masonry units, such as bricks, stones, or concrete blocks, and binding them together with mortar. Masonry walls can be load-bearing, meaning they support the weight of the structure above them, or non-load-bearing.
