The 12-page bulletin will serve as a guide to the tradesperson to provide general insight how stone anchorage devices interface with stone panels and the building structure.
As part of its ongoing technical bulletin series for the
stone industry, the Marble Institute of America (MIA) has released the
Dimension Stone Anchorage Theory, Practice,
& Components, a 12-page bulletin “prepared as a guide to the
tradesperson to provide general insight how stone anchorage devices interface
with stone panels and the building structure,” the MIA says. Common anchorage
devices are discussed, as well as some guidance regarding why certain anchor
device selections may be more appropriate than others in particular situations.
Technical Bulletins provide an ongoing educational resource to our members and
the design community at large,” said Brett Rugo,
MIA’s recently appointed president. He added, “The bulletins create and
maintain industry recognition of MIA members as reliable, fully informed
sources of natural stone technical products and their uses.”
Muehlbauer, MIA technical director agreed saying, “The topics
for future technical bulletins will vary covering such subjects as joint
sealant design use, air barriers, insulation, crack isolation products,
portland cement, flashing designs, etc. They will include basic information and
will clarify and detail these sometimes troublesome and confusing subjects.”
