Can I use brick veneer with steel framing?

Yes, you can. Most steel framing construction in New Zealand uses brick veneer as a cladding because, like the steel frame behind it, this veneer lasts a very long time. New Zealand CFS has been seismically tested at Swinburne University in Melbourne to many more times the seismic forces than we ever have had in New Zealand. There was no damage to the structural frames and only minor dislodgement of bricks due to the great flexibility and strength of CFS.
