Masonry Joint Reinforcement and
Anchor Selection Guide
INTRODUCTION
Building codes govern the design of masonry structures and most codes reference either the current or an earlier
version of the Building Code Requirements for Masonry Structures (ACI 530-05/ASCE 5-05/TMS 402-05), which
is generally referred to as the ACI 530 Code. When the ACI 530 Code supplements a legally adopted building
code it means the ACI 530 Code governs in all areas relating to the structural design and construction of masonry
structures, except where the ACI 530 Code is in conflict with requirements in the legally adopted code. In areas
of the United States without a legally adopted building code, the ACI 530 Code defines the minimum acceptable
standards of design and construction practices.
The type, size and location of connectors shall be shown or indicated on the project drawings as required by the
ACI 530 Code.
For more than 65 years, Dur-O-Wal has been manufacturing masonry joint reinforcement and accessories. During
this time, Dur-O-Wal, as well as the other manufacturers of masonry accessories, has traditionally manufactured
and sold a great variety of connector types. Many of these were never tested and they may or may not meet the
requirements of today’s modern building codes.
For construction utilizing concrete masonry units (CMU), Dur-O-Wal strongly recommends the use of masonry
joint reinforcement or assemblies using masonry joint reinforcement instead of unit ties. This is due to the improved
embedment strength and ductility obtained by using continuous wire in the CMU face shell bedding versus the use
of individual unit ties. In addition, when masonry joint reinforcement is used, the presence and spacing of wall ties
is guaranteed.
Many of the products manufactured and marketed by Dur-O-Wal have been tested and meet the requirements
of the ACI 530 Code. This publication attempts to reduce the variety of connectors used and to answer questions
regarding the selection of connectors for various conditions. Dur-O-Wal has published this Technical Bulletin for
use by architects and engineers; however, the architect or engineer should select connector based on their own
analysis and design.

STANDARDS
The masonry accessories manufactured and supplied by Dur-O-Wal meet or exceed the following standards:

CORROSION PROTECTION
The ACI 530 Code requires that all exterior masonry walls exposed to earth or weather and interior walls exposed
to a mean relative humidity of 75 percent or more shall have:
• Masonry wall reinforcement and anchors produced from stainless steel or carbon steel that is protected
from corrosion by hot-dip galvanized coating or epoxy coating.
  All other interior walls shall use masonry reinforcement and anchors that are mill galvanized, hot dipped galvanized
or stainless steel.
Masonry accessories produced from stainless steel provide outstanding corrosion protection and offer excellent
longevity to a masonry structure. Carbon steel, when coated with zinc provides much better corrosion protection
than does an epoxy coated steel product. Zinc offers sacrificial protection to carbon steel providing protection in
the event the protective zinc coating becomes scratched or damaged. Due to this sacrificial process, zinc coated
products do not normally significantly corrode until the adjoining zinc coating has been expended.
Mill galvanized provides only a thin coating of zinc that is applied to carbon steel before any product fabrication
is preformed. Any welds or exposed edges left by the fabrication process are not coated with zinc. Mill galvanizing
does not provide reliable protection for use in an exterior anchoring system.
Carbon steel products that are hot dipped galvanized (HDG) after fabrication have excellent resistance to corrosion,
provided by its thicker zinc coating. HDG is the last step in the fabrication of a masonry accessory and ensures that
welds and cut edges are protected with zinc. The thicker the zinc coating the longer it offers corrosion protection.
Dur-O-Wal does not recommend the use of epoxy coated masonry joint reinforcement or accessories as the
epoxy coating does not offer sacrificial protection and any “holiday” that may develop during the coating process or
later coating damage will lead to the development of corrosion.
Plain or uncoated carbon steel masonry joint reinforcement and accessories are specifically not allowed by the
ACI 530 Code and are not recommended by Dur-O-Wal as it offers no protection from corrosion and can corrode
while in transit, stored in a warehouse or in storage at a jobsite.
For extended life and corrosion protection, restoration anchors are fabricated with a brass expansion sleeve, brass
expander cone, inner rod from Type 304 Stainless Steel and a stainless steel or a galvanized bolt and washer.

MASONRY WALL REINFORCEMENT


The ACI Building Code Requirements for Masonry Structures requires reinforced masonry construction to have
the total area of horizontal and vertical steel reinforcement equal to at least 0.002 times the gross cross-section
area of the wall with a minimum in either direction of not less than 0.0007 times the wall area.
The use of Dur-O-Wal Ladur or Truss Masonry Joint Reinforcement may be considered part of the required
minimum horizontal reinforcement. In many cases, the horizontal steel requirement can be satisfied entirely by
the use of masonry joint reinforcement. It should be noted; that sufficient steel reinforcement to resist all live and
dead loads imposed upon the structure is required.
Even in cases where more than the minimum horizontal steel reinforcement is required, the use of Dur-O-Wal
masonry joint reinforcement, as part of this steel, will reduce the number of bond beams required. The use of
masonry wall reinforcement in conjunction with wider-spaced bond beams provides the horizontal portion of the
required steel for reinforced masonry and decreases the potential for the development of cracks.
Horizontal masonry joint reinforcement is commonly used in masonry construction to control the size and
spacing of cracks that may result from temperature and moisture changes. Prefabricated masonry wall
reinforcing Corners and Tees are used to bond intersecting walls together.
Most Codes restrict the wire size of masonry joint reinforcement to one-half the joint thickness. This restriction
in wire diameter is designed to allow the flow of mortar around the masonry wall reinforcement. Since the typical
mortar joint used in masonry construction is 3/8”, this means 3/16” is the maximum wire diameter that should be
used for masonry wall reinforcement.
Dur-O-Wal manufactures its Truss and Ladur Masonry Joint Reinforcement in three different weights:
• Standard Weight consists of 9 gauge side rods and 9 gauge cross wires.
• Extra Heavy Weight consists of 3/16” diameter side rods and 9 gauge cross wires.
• Super Heavy Weight consists of 3/16” diameter side rods and 3/16” cross wires.
The manufacturing process for the Dur-O-Wal masonry joint reinforcement results in the side wires and cross
wires being resistance welded in the same plane, providing a full cover of mortar at all weld intersections.
Dur-O-Wal deforms the side wires of masonry joint reinforcement, to provide additional bonding capacity with
the mortar, by providing small indentations along the length of the side rods. Additional bond strength is gained
by the flush resistance welding of cross wires to side rods, forming an additional mechanical anchor at each
intersection.
When masonry joint reinforcement is lap spliced for longitudinal continuity, specify that the wires be lapped side
by side to avoid a double thickness of wire in the mortar joint. Minimum lap length of side rods should be 6-3/4”
for 9 gauge side rods and 8-1/2” for 3/16” diameter side rods.

HORIZONTAL MASONRY JOINT REINFORCEMENT


The longitudinal wires of masonry joint reinforcement used in a CMU backing are required by Code to be fully
embedded in mortar or grout with a minimum exterior cover of 5/8” and a minimum interior cover of 1/2”. To aid
the mason in meeting these specified minimum cover requirements, masonry joint reinforcement supplied by Dur-
O-Wal measures 2” out-to-out less than the nominal dimension specified.
Minimum horizontal joint reinforcement shall consist of at least two 9 gauge wires spaced not more than 16”
on center or bond beam reinforcement of 0.2 square inches spaced not more than 120” apart. It shall also
be provided at the bottom and top of wall openings and extend at least 24” past the opening, continuously at
structural connected roof and floor levels and within 16” of the top of walls.
Reinforced Masonry
The maximum allowable tensile stress in masonry joint reinforcement is 30,000 psi.
When anchoring load bearing corner and intersecting tee walls using masonry wall reinforcing, MJR should be
spaced at 8” on center and extend in each direction at least 30”.
Interior non-load bearing corner and tee walls shall be anchored at vertical intervals of not more than 16” with
MJR or 1/4” metal mesh galvanized cloth. Other metal ties may be used provided they have an equivalent area of
anchorage.
Veneer
When Ladur or Tab type Masonry Joint Reinforcement is placed in a CMU backing and used to connect veneer to
a backing, it shall be spaced at 16” maximum vertical centers with a minimum cover of 5/8” on each side.

4
Masonry Joint Reinforcement & Anchor Selection Guide

In Seismic Design Categories E and F, a single 9-gauge wire reinforcement is required to reinforce the veneer.
It is spaced at 16” on center vertically and mechanically attached to the MJR with Quake Clips. However, due to
problems associated with shipping single wires without damage, Dur-O-Wal recommends the use of DA3200S
Seismic Ladur for this condition.

For a more complete understanding of the requirements for masonry wall reinforcement, the reader is advised
to consult a copy of the Building Code Requirements for Masonry Structures (ACI 530-05/ASCE 5-05/TMS 402-

SINGLE WYTHE CONCRETE MASONRY CONSTRUCTION


For un-reinforced CMU single wythe walls, Dur-O-Wal recommends the use of either DA3100 Truss or DA3200
Ladur Masonry Joint Reinforcement (MJR). When a single wythe CMU wall is to be vertically reinforced and the
cells filled with grout, the use of Truss MJR is not recommended as the cross wires can interfere with the installation
of the vertical reinforcing steel and the placement of the grout.
When a single wythe wall is to be reinforced using full
height vertical steel, DA3200S Seismic Ladur Masonry
Joint Reinforcement is recommended in the face shell.
Dur-O-Wal recommends MJR for use:

• Ladur or Truss as crack control when placed DA3100 Truss


at 16” centers vertically and in conjunction with Masonry Joint Reinforcement
properly spaced control joints.
• Ladur or Truss as principle reinforcement to resist
out-of-plane horizontal bending and in-plane shear.
• Ladur as principle reinforcement to meet horizontal
steel requirements in areas of seismic activity.
DA3200 Ladur
• Ladur with bond beam steel to meet total horizontal
Masonry Joint Reinforcement
steel requirements in areas of seismic activity.

MULTI-WYTHE CONCRETE MASONRY CONSTRUCTION


Each Wythe Laid at Different Times
For CMU cavity walls having either a clay or concrete veneer and
with or without cavity insulation, Dur-O-Wal recommends the use
of either DA3600 Ladur-Eye or DA3700 Dur-O-Eye Masonry Joint
Reinforcement (MJR). When the CMU wythe is to be vertically
reinforced, the use of Dur-O-Eye is not recommended as the cross
wires can interfere with the installation of the vertical reinforcing steel
and the placement of the grout.
DA3700 Dur-O-Eye with Pintles
Dur-O-Wal recommends Ladur-Eye or Dur-O-Eye MJR with Masonry Joint Reinforcement
Pintles for use:
• Where the cavities do or do not contain insulation.
• Where inner and outer wythes are not laid
simultaneously or where the bed joints in the CMU
and veneer wythes do not line up at the same elevation;
maximum eccentricity between MJR and Pintle is 1-1/4”.
• Where Code compliance requires one wall tie for each
1.77 square feet of wall surface.
• Veneers wider than a nominal 4” require the use of Seismic DA3600 Ladur-Eye with Pintles
Ladur in the veneer course attached to the MJR with Masonry Joint Reinforcement
Seismic Pintles.

MULTI-WYTHE CONCRETE MASONRY CONSTRUCTION


Both Wythes Laid at Same Time
When the CMU wythe is to be vertically reinforced, the use of
Truss MJR is not recommended as the cross wires can interfere
with the installation of the vertical reinforcing steel and the
placement of the grout.
Truss Trirod or Double Side Rod MJR is not recommended when
the backing is CMU and the veneer is clay brick. This is due to
problems that can develop due to the difference in expansion and
contraction characteristics of the two materials.
Non-adjustable DA3200TR Ladur Tri Rod or DA3200DSR
Ladur Double Side Rod Masonry Joint Reinforcement, installed DA3200TR Ladur Trirod
every 16” can be used as masonry veneer anchors when the bed Masonry Joint Reinforcement
joints of the CMU and veneer line up and both wythes are laid up
at the same time. When bed joints will not line up or the CMU
and veneer will be laid at different times, then DA3600 Ladur-Eye,
DA3700 Dur-O-Eye DA3600S Heavy Duty Seismic Ladur-Eye or
DA3700S Seismic Dur-O-Eye with appropriate Pintles should be
installed at 16” centers horizontally and vertically.
Above recommendations are:
• Where Code compliance requires one wall tie for each
1.77 square feet of wall surface.
• With CMU veneers or clay brick veneers wider than
a nominal 4“ width specify Double Side Rod Masonry Wall
Reinforcement. DA3200DSR Ladur Double Side Rod
Masonry Joint Reinforcement
MASONRY VENEER ANCHORS
As anchors connect masonry veneer to a structural backing, the proper anchor selection is important for long-
term durability of a cavity wall structure. When insulation is to be installed in the cavity, the designer should select
and specify anchors that will contact the backing in order to keep any compression loads transferred through
the masonry anchors from damaging the insulation. Typically, the veneer connections must be flexible in order
to accommodate in-plane differential movement between the veneer and backing, yet resist the out-of-plane
compression and tension loads.
7
Masonry Joint Reinforcement & Anchor Selection Guide

Proper performance of a masonry veneer anchor is directly related to the amount of embedment provided for in
its selection. The ACI 530 Code requires an anchor to have a minimum embedment into the veneer mortar joint of
1-1/2” with at least 5/8” mortar cover from the outside face of the veneer.
Many designers are presently specifying adjustable, “two-piece” anchors as these anchors are able to adjust
to varying field coursing conditions and can be attached to all types of structural backings. All masonry veneer
anchors should be fastened to the backing with fasteners produced from similar metals and coatings to reduce the
possibility of galvanic corrosion occurring.
Dur-O-Wal does not recommend and most Codes have eliminated the use of anchors with a “drip notch”, as the
notch greatly reduces the load-carrying capacity of an anchor.
When the cavity width between wythes exceeds 4-1/2” the ACI 530 Code requires a detailed wall tie analysis be
made to determine proper anchor spacing.
When veneer is laid in other than a running bond pattern, it shall be reinforced with at least one 9 gauge wire
spaced at 18” on center vertically.

SPACING – MASONRY VENEER ANCHORS

Due to the difficulty in shipping DA8706 MJR without it being damaged in shipment, Dur-O-Wal recommends
the use of DA3200S Seismic Ladur Masonry Joint Reinforcement instead.
HIGH WIND AREAS
The following apply where the basic wind speed exceeds 110 mph but does not exceed 130 mph and the mean
roof height of the structure is equal to or less than 60 feet.
Reduce the maximum wall area supported by each anchor to 70% of that specified from the appropriate
Seismic Design Category listed above.
Space anchors at a maximum of 18” horizontally and vertically.
Provide additional anchors around openings larger than 16” in either direction. Space anchors around openings
at 24” maximum centers. Place anchors within 12” of opening.

DA100 Dovetail Anchor Slot


DA131 Seismic Dovetail Anchor
To support load, the DA100 Anchor Slot must be properly installed in concrete, as the slot if attached directly to
the outside surface of the concrete will not provide any anchoring strength.
Fasten lengths of DA100 Dovetail Anchor Slot against the inside of concrete formwork, prior to placement of
concrete. Dur-O-Wal recommends fastening the slot to the formwork on 12” centers or less. Once the formwork
is stripped and the veneer is to be installed, dovetail anchors are inserted into the slot and adjusted vertically to fit
into the bed joints of the masonry veneer.
The DA131 anchor is fabricated from 12, 14 or 16 gauge material. It
is designed for use with the DA100 Dovetail Slot for anchoring veneer
to precast or poured-in-place concrete and can be used in all Seismic
Design Categories. Raised “lugs” on the end of the anchor are
designed to engage a 9-gauge veneer reinforcing wire, as required in
Seismic Design Categories E and F.
DA131 Anchor can be used as a normal veneer anchor, without
veneer reinforcement, as the notches and raised “lugs” are bonded
securely into the mortar bed.

DA720 Series Dovetail Triangular Tie
Dovetail Anchor Slot and Triangular Tie have been designed to anchor
masonry veneer to precast or poured-in-place concrete where the DA100
Dovetail Anchor Slot has been embedded in the concrete by the precaster
or general contractor. This system provides out-of-plane tension and
compression restraint, yet does not impose restraint on in-plane movement.
The DA100 slot is available in mill galvanized 22, 24 or 26 gauge carbon
steel or Type 304 stainless steel. Anchor slot, due to its shape is not available
hot dipped galvanized. It is furnished in standard lengths of 10’-0” and is
foam filled to prevent concrete from filling the slot during the placement of
concrete.
If Dovetail Anchor Slot has been left out of the concrete, Dur-O-Wal
recommends attaching the DA720 Dovetail Triangular Tie directly to the
backing. Use the DA5410 or DA5610 Expansion Anchor, depending on
backing material.

DA210X Veneer Anchor Screw-On Plate


DA700 Series Triangular Ties
This system can be used with or without rigid foam insulation in
the cavity as the plate has legs intended to pierce the rigid foam
insulation and/or rigid fiberglass/gypsum board sheathing coming
to bear directly against a wood or metal stud. The 14 gauge thick
plate has legs sized to accommodate 5/8”, 3/4”, 1”, 1-1/2”, 2”,
2-1/2” and 3” combined thicknesses of insulation and sheathing.

The DA210X Screw-On Plate and a DA700 Series Triangular


Tie are combined to form a two part adjustable veneer anchoring
system that provides resistance to out-of-plane loads. Triangular
ties do not provide resistance to in-plane loading. This system
is designed to connect masonry veneer to wood or metal stud
framed structural backings.

Depending on the type of studs used to construct the backing,


attachment of the plate is by use of two DA807 sheet metal
screws, DA808 wood screws or DA995 stainless steel sheet metal
screws.

Plate design provides 3-3/4” of vertical tie adjustment to meet variations in the masonry coursing.
The plate and triangular tie are available HDG after fabrication with Type 304 stainless steel on special order.
Other styles of screw-on plates are available.

DA411 Wall Top Stabilization Anchor


A mechanical anchoring system designed to resist out-of-plane loads at the top of masonry walls, consisting of
a 3/8” diameter x 6” long steel dowel resistance welded to a 12 gauge carbon steel plate. The anchor assembly is
HDG after fabrication to resist corrosion. Assembly is available, on special order, fabricated from Type 304 stainless
steel.
Wall Top Stabilization Anchors can be welded or bolted to the bottom of steel beams, fastened with screws, expansion
anchors or epoxied to the underneath side of a concrete ceiling/floor or beam. The anchor plate is normally installed
perpendicular to the length of the wall, except in cases where the wall thickness is less than the length of the plate.

900 lbs. 0.207”
300 lbs. 0.621”
200 lbs. 0.932”

  Slots in the anchoring plate provide field adjustment of the assembly. The dowel, sleeved with a plastic tube,
is normally bedded in mortar within the groove of a sash CMU. A plastic expansion tube prevents bonding of the
dowel to mortar and a compressible foam fill at the end of the sleeve allows for vertical deflections.
For installation, lay a standard sash CMU at the top of the wall, install the anchor so that the anchoring pin is in the
sash groove, “butter” the end, then lay another CMU sash unit against the pin. This mortars the anchoring pin into
a slot that measures 5/8” wide x 1-1/2” long. The pin can also be installed in the hollow core of a CMU, although a
method will need to be devised to fill that core with grout or mortar.

DA2200 Joint Stabilization Anchor


This anchor is designed primarily to resist shear forces from
lateral loads. It is the solution for bridging vertical expansion
joints, providing stability to the adjoining walls and allowing for
longitudinal expansion movement.

In addition, anchors can be field bent to 90° with one leg


mechanically fastened to a vertical wall or column. Embedding the
other leg in the bed joint of the adjoining wall allows for expansion
movement but lateral movement is restricted for the intersecting
walls. Anchor can be welded to steel columns if required.

The anchor consists of two specially designed mill galvanized


steel plates with integrally formed upturned edge sleeves. The
plates are connected with two lubricated 8 gauge mill galvanized
wires that slide inside the sleeved edges of the plates. Available
on special order completely fabricated from stainless steel material. Sliding action between the wires and sleeves
allows longitudinal movement providing for full utilization of the expansion joint. A plastic spacer separates the two
plates to insure expansion can take place.

Brick to Brick Brick to CMU Brick to Structural Steel

The ultimate shear capacity is 305 lbs. based on a 5/8” wide joint. As the shear capacity is a direct function of the
joint width, it will have a higher capacity when the anchor is installed across a 3/8” joint and a lower capacity across
a 3/4” joint. The minimum required strength of mortar is 1,800 psi

brochures:

Individual Product Submittal Sheets are available upon request.
SAFETY INFORMATION
DUR-O-WAL masonry products are intended for use by trained, qualified and experienced workers only. Misuse
or lack of supervision and/or inspection can contribute to property damage, serious accidents or deaths. Any
application other than those shown in this publication should be carefully tested before use.
The values listed in this brochure are ultimate values. The user of these DUR-O-WAL products must evaluate the
product application, determine the appropriate design load and control all field conditions to prevent applications of
loads in excess of the design load. The data displayed in this publication are a combination of actual testing and/
or other industry sources.
SHOP OR FIELD MODIFICATION
Welding can compromise the load value of a product and lead to hazardous situations. Knowledge of materials,
heat-treating and welding procedures is necessary for proper welding. Consult a local welding supply dealer for
assistance in determining required welding procedures.
Since DUR-O-WAL cannot control workmanship or conditions in which modifications are done, DUR-O-WAL
cannot be responsible for any product altered in the field.
INTERCHANGEABILITY
Many masonry accessory products that DUR-O-WAL manufactures are designed as part of a system. DUR-O-WAL
strongly discourages efforts to interchange products supplied by other manufacturers with components supplied by
DUR-O-WAL. When used properly, and in accordance with published instructions, DUR-O-WAL products have
proven to be among the best designed and safest in the industry. Used improperly or with incompatible components
supplied by other manufac­turers, DUR-O-WAL products or systems may be rendered ineffective and/or unsafe.
DESIGN CHANGES
DUR-O-WAL Masonry Accessories reserves the right to change product designs, capacities and product dimensions
at any time without prior notice.
