This bulletin is intended to serve as a general guide to the practice of mechanically anchoring dimension stone.
Reading this document will not make one a stone cladding engineer, in fact, it is not written with the intent of guiding engineers. It was prepared as a guide to the tradesperson, and provides general valuable insight as to how stone anchorage devices interface with the stone panels and the building structure.
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.
