Help with a Brick Latticework Screen

Recommended Posts

I need some help on where I can find some details, information, restrictions, etc on a brick latticework fence or screen.

Lets say it surrounds a patio on three sides to screen and provide privacy. It is around 54" in height and 8' in length. It is has no reinforcing steel or supports other than four brick columns in each corner, that I'm pretty sure have no steel in them.

I'm looking for any information that relates to construction restrictions or guidelines for such a structure.

Scott, nothing on the BIA website? www.gobrick.com

technical notes.

try bed joints and work protection and open face without coping, etc....

Not really much on the BIA site, I did find a section on garden walls that was some help.

Thanks, and the quest continues....

how about just simple restriction on exposed core? moisture. I would likely stress drainage. structure is going to be difficult, especially lateral loads.

good luck!

Serpentine brick walls, supposedly designed by Thomas Jefferson, stand without reinforcement only one wythe thick if they are of the right frequency and amplitude. I have seen these at formal gardens at UVA and at UGA.
