Securing of ceramic cladding or double-shell masonry on facades

When renovating facades with render or ETICS, one often encounters substrates with ceramic claddings or double-shell masonry. Before starting the work, it is essential to check the substrates for sufficient load-bearing capacity. If the load-bearing capacity is not given, appropriate securing measures must be carried out.

Simple & safe to the goal

  1. Existing wall build-up

    1. Ceramic covering (thickness ≤ 15 mm)
     fixed in a mortar bed on the load-bearing substrate

  2.  

    2. Brick slips (thickness ≤ 15 mm)
    fixed in a mortar bed on the load-bearing substrate

  3.  

    3. Thin facing bricks (thickness = 55 - < 90 mm)
    fixed in a mortar bed on the load-bearing substrate

  4. 4. Thin facing bricks (thickness = 55 - < 90 mm)
    fixed in a mortar bed. Partial debonding of the facing bricks from the mortar layer / load-bearing wall

  5. 5. Double shell masonry (thickness = 90 - < 115 mm)
    back-up masonry with clinker facing shell

  6. 6. Double shell masonry (thickness ≥ 115 mm)
