    903.2.2 Capillary break is added on footing. 3 Walls must be set on a minimum 4 inch thick gravel bed with appropriate foundation drainage.

    A capillary break at the footing is required to prevent moisture migration into a foundation wall from the soil. A capillary break is created because Superior Walls insulated precast wall panels are damp-proof and set directly on a crushed stone footing.
