Sample text

Maximum furring or stud spacing is 24 in. (610 mm) on center. Precast concrete insulated panels can also be used in lieu of cast concrete. This construction eliminates thermal bridging and provides an extra layer of insulation. Foam insulation must be covered with a code-approved thermal barrier. This is a minimum 1/2 in. (13 mm) layer of gypsum wallboard. Refer to Section 1-9 for information on architectural concrete. Likely Failure Points Degradation of foam plastic insulation if a compatible adhesive is not used Degradation of batt insulation if subjected to moisture Air leakage due to an inadequate seal between concrete and framing Moisture penetration due to lack of an adequate seal between vapor retarder and framing Materials 07 21 16 BATT INSULATION Fiberglass, ASTM C665, Type I or Type II (unfaced or faced).

Limitations of Use The guidelines given here are for one-stage joints only. Good inspection and maintenance are required for one-stage joints to ensure that the weathertightness of the joint is maintained throughout the life of the building. This detail does not include major building movement joints or preformed compression sealants or gaskets. Detailing Considerations The number of joints should be kept to a minimum whenever possible. Joints should be located at the maximum panel thickness. Joints should be recessed with a reveal or chamfer, as shown in Fig.

Because there are so many possible variations of precast panels, this section only outlines some of the general requirements. Limitations of Use Non-load-bearing panels only resist forces resulting from transfer of wind and seismic loads and transfer of the panel’s own weight to the structure. Special connections, which allow pronounced lateral movement, are required in high seismic areas. Detailing Considerations Closed shapes are easier to handle than open shapes due to their inherent rigidity.
