DOUBLE WALLS AND TRICKS FOR IMPLEMENTATION



DOUBLE WALLS (Double Wall Masonry)
Widely used to hide the structure avoiding fillers, it also offers greater resistance.
In addition, between the walls is a cavity that holds an air layer and provides thermal and acoustic insulation.
Yes, it is more expensive and there is a waste of usable space.
TRICKS FOR IMPLEMENTATION:
Masonry walls are built from the inside out. First the inner wall is seated, positioning the windows, electrical and hydraulic parts. After that, the outside wall should be made, leaving an occasional brick along the bottom row, so that the wall can be wet every day after work to remove excess grout (see photo 3).
The outer layer rows should never be higher than the inner layer rows, as water can flow through the joints into the inner wall, causing permanent infiltration problems.
