The different types of walls
load bearing walls
A stone load bearing wall supports all facade loads and thus
avoids the need for a reinforced concrete or other type of
structural frame, except in the case of concentrated forces
on very small sections (mullions).
If the wall is composed of a single material throughout its
n° 1) or several materials fixed to each other
datasheet n° 2), a thickness of 20 to 40 cm
will satisfy regulatory requirements for resistance to water
and will provide an excellent thermal inertia.
