Typical Details - Foreword
On the following pages, details are shown using case histories. The typical anchoring methods shown were used on projects actually completed. All profile dimensions and anchoring methods are examples and may, in most cases, be altered suit your particular design.
While the case histories shown in this manual demonstrate proven anchoring methods, it is beyond the scope of this publication to make specific recommendations for anchoring. Consult with your structural engineer when making the particular considerations pertaining to your application.
Use of the proper type and correct quantity of anchors to fit the design and weight of the stone will help cut the cost of both manufacturing and setting.
Planning the proper anchor for simplicity when setting stone can save time and money. Anchors and connections located in hard-to-reach areas, or connections requiring two different trades for setting may be simplified by using a different type. The cost of connections can usually be reduced by careful planning.
