Flashing Question

I have a question about a flashing that goes on the side of a brick veneer wall, since I can't seem to find any info on it anywhere.

I've attached a pic of what the prints say; anyone seen these, or know what another name for them is so I can buy some??

Re: Flashing Question

I'll try to 'guess' what is meant regarding flashing. When I think of sprung mental flashing,I think of a reglet cut in masonry with a metal folded a tad more than 45 degrees pushed into that kerf. Better check with architect to be positive.

Re: Flashing Question

The Cavity Behind the tin needs vents to let out vapour, and weeps/ vent intakes to let liquid water leave the rainscreen.........which is WHERE?

Where is the "RED line" for the rain screen?

Wood studs or sheet metal studs, jamb?

I'd want a PT 2x X board to fill 95% of the cavity @ jambs and ends, but I didn't Low ball this building either. It cuts down on vermin doorways....and wall whistles.

CMUs need to be mostly DRY to survive repeated freezing/ thaw cycles, no puddles or sprinkler systems wetting them down constantly...

Add the elevation view of the jamb please/ opening section through Lintel/header ....down to grade, include horizontal flashing/dampproof flashing

You will need a MASTER tin-bender to make that front wrap look good everywhere and a diamond grinder:What happen when window or CMUs aren't perfectly plumb in all FOUR points NEEDED for this detail to be unwrinkled.....

.make the piece 2-4" over width rip it, and install with a lap fasten to the cavity filler board.
I might be an Idiot, but I know things that You don't: Please wait till after you get my know-how to insult me....
