Exterior Masonry Veneer

Structural Building Components Association (SBCA)

While the use of brick veneer supported by Metal Plate Connected Wood Trusses (MPCWT) is not covered by the prescriptive methods of either the International Building Code (IBC) or the IRC, code compliant use of MPCWT to support brick veneer can be accomplished and can be applied to many different situations utilizing MPCWT’s. This guide focuses specifically on creating a code compliant connection where exterior masonry veneer is located on the gable end at the transition from a wider section of a building to a narrower section.
