Corners, Caps & Openings: Conventional Details

End of wall conditions, door and window openings, corners and cap conditions occur on nearly every project, and conventional details are available. It is most common to end a wall or opening with “closed-end” (“A-Shaped”) units, rather than open-end “H-shaped” block. Corners can be detailed in a number of ways, and caps are simply solid concrete masonry, in 2”, 4”, or 8” high units.

(See Standard CMU Details for a current collection of details).
