Masonry type of construction made with brick, structural clay tile or concrete masonry units or any combination of such units in which facing and backing are completely separated except for the metal ties which serve as bonding. (UBC)
Masonry wall built with a continuous air space between the outer masonry and the inner wall (typically concrete block or frame construction). Water that penetrates the outer masonry runs down through the cavity and is directed out at the bottom through weep holes. (Ask us about solutions for maintaining the integrity of the cavity.)
A wall comprising two leafs of brick or blockwork tied together, with an air gap/insulation between.
masonry wall having an internal air space.
Two walls, usually brick, constructed with a hollow space between where the air serves as insulation. This type of construction also prevents windswept rain from seeping through to interior wall. Ties of metal or brick join the walls. Often called a hollow wall.
A wall built of two or more wythes of masonry units separated by a continuous air space (with or without insulating materials) and in which the wythes are securely tied together with rigid corrosion resistant metal ties.
a wall formed of two thicknesses of masonry with a space between them
Usual construction for external walls comprising an inner and outer leaf with a space between for insulation
The outside wall of a building, made up of an inner and outer layer with a space (cavity) between which could be filled with insulation
Standard modern method of building external walls of houses comprising two leaves of brick or blockwork separated by a gap ("cavity") of about 50mm (2 inches).
A hollow wall section created by wood framing members and usually insulated.
A wall made of two separate, parallel masonry skins with an air space between.
A wall consisting of two layers with a 2 in./152 mm gap between.
The continuous gap between the inner and outer brickwork usually 50mm in width. Also known as Hollow Wall.
A masonry wall on which the inner and outer surfaces are separated by an air-space. Wall faces are joined by mechanical ties.
Wall of two leaves effectively tied together with wall tie with a space between them, usually at least 50mm wide.
A wall built of masonry units so arranged as to provide a continous air/grout space within the wall (with or without insulating material), and in which the inner and outer wythes of the wall are tied together with metal ties.
(1) A wall built of masonry units arranged to provide a continuous air space within the wall (with or without insulating material) and in which the inner and outer widths of the wall are tied together with metal ties or headers; (2) A wall built or arranged to provide an air space within the wall (with or without insulating material), in which the inner and outer materials are tied together by structural framing.
The double- wall of the external envelop of a structure that encloses a vertical void (or cavity), which is filled with insulation for thermal and sound- proofing. Usually a cavity wall has 25cm thickness (10cm wall + 5cm cavity + 10cm wall)
is a hollow wall formed by linking masonry walls to provide an insulating air space.
A HOLLOW WALL FORMED BY FIRMLY LINKED MASONRY WALLS PROVIDING AN INSULATING AIR SPACE BETWEEN. HAIR RAIL WOODEN MOULDING ON A WALL AROUND A ROOM AT THE LEVEL OF A CHAIR BACK.
a carton or fitment where the sidewalls are constructed so as to form a hollow frame effect.
Used in more southerly climates, it is a hollow masonry wall consisting of an inner and outer wall with dead air space between them, which provides increased thermal insulation. Both walls sides are separately reinforced for seismic resistance.
Cavity walls are two-part masonry that include a cavity, a hollow space.
