NCMA’s TEK Note on the empirical method for control joint locations has recently been updated to reflect new provisions for control joint spacing for reduced height CMU. For assemblies using 4 inch nominal height CMU, new recommendation limit the maximum spacing of control joints to 1.5 times the wall height, with a maximum spacing of 20 feet. Check out the updated version of TEK Note 10-02D here.
