A technical bulletin published by the Marble Institute of America (MIA) earlier this year, has been picked up and featured by ArchitectureWeek magazine, in both their E-newsletter and on the “Download Center” portion of their Web site. The E-newsletter is distributed to over 95,000 architects.

The technical bulletin selected by ArchitectureWeek is titled Dimension Stone Anchorage Theory, Practice, and Components, and is intended to serve as a general guide to the practice of mechanically anchoring dimension stone. The bulletin was prepared as a guide to the tradesperson, and provides general valuable insight as to how stone anchorage devices interface with stone panels and the building structure. Common anchorage devices are discussed, as well as some guidance regarding why certain anchor device selections may be more appropriate than others in particular situations.

Having this bulletin selected and promoted by ArchitectureWeek serves as validation of MIA’s leading role in developing and providing technical information about natural stone. The 2010 MIA Technical Bulletin Series was initiated by 2010 MIA President Brett Rugo.

“This was the type of exposure that we were hoping with our technical bulletins,” said Rugo. “Exposing architects and designers to our technical writings and being recognized as the worldwide leader, with respect to natural stone technical data and standard setting, is a crucial component of the MIA Strategic Plan.”

In addition to releasing Dimension Stone Anchorage Theory, Practice, and Components in February 2010, Joint Sealants: Products & Application for the Natural Stone Industry was released in May, and Cement Types and Usage with Natural Stone, in October. All three of these technical documents are available to MIA members for free in the member’s only area of the MIA Web site, and to the general public in the MIA online bookstore.
