Limited Wall Tile Size/Weight allowed by the International Building Code

Hi.

I am trying to install a 12x48 or 24x24 Wall tille and wanted to know given the weight of this product (19.80 lbs per piece), what would be the limiting size per IBC.

Thanks.

That's about 5 pounds per square foot, which is about the same for smaller tile over the same area. Building codes don't limit the weights of your finishes, they simply require the weight to be accounted for in the structural design.
