OS2 Structural Safety


[F20-OS2.3]Applies to elements that support or are part of an environmental separator.


Intent 1:

To limit the probability of excessive eccentricity of loads, which could lead to masonry cracking or falling.

This is to limit the probability of compromised structural integrity, which could lead to:

  • structural failure of masonry construction, or
  • where masonry construction is part of an environmental separator, the excessive deformation, displacement or failure of required environmental separation elements, which could lead to deterioration, which could lead to further compromised structural integrity.

This is to limit the probability of harm to persons.

Intent 2:

To clarify the method for measuring the projection, beyond its supporting base, of rough-stone veneer where the face is not coplanar.
