Shelf Angle - Typical Brick

Shelf Angle - Typical Brick

International Masonry Institute
IMI Detail 01.030.0703. This shelf angle detail uses a typical brick course below the shelf angle. This may result in a wider horizontal expansion joint below the angle, but is more economical than using a lipped (notched) brick. The shelf angle is flashed with flexible thru-wall flashing, transitioning to more durable sheet metal flashing drip edge at the exposed portion. The wall has a 2" clear air space for drainage, and weep vents are spaced at 24" o.c. Rigid insulation resides in the drainage cavity. This detail is intended for the use of industry professionals who are competent to evaluate the significance and limitations of the information provided herein. This detail should not be used as the sole guide for masonry design and construction, and IMI disclaims any and all legal responsibility for the consequences of applying the information. #AIA #air_barrier #BAC #block #brick #bricklayer #cavity #CMU #Conwell #drainage #expansion_joint #flashing #green #highperforming #horizontal_expansion_joint #IMI #IUBAC #masonry #MDS #mortar #shelf_angle #shelf_angles #sustainability #sustainable #wall_tie #weeps
