Modern concrete masonry manufacturers have begun making high quality simulated
stone products in various sizes to facilitate ashlar or random rubble type bond patterns. The situation is similar to the situation we addressed on the previous page. There is no conventional alignment of the bed
joints between the cmu backup and veneer. The anchorage of veneer to backup must occur at the code required rate of one tie per 2.67 square ft of wall area. This conveniently translates to 16" in one direction and 24"
in the other direction. Individual anchors can be used the wall they were used in the previous example as shown below - left. Alternatively, as shown on the below and right , a fully adjustable rubble stone anchoring system can
also be used.
