Application

Applications requiring supporting of external brickwork within a horizontal movement joint

Description

Masonry Support is a common feature found in masonry clad buildings worldwide. Masonry Support has the critical function of taking the external masonry load and applying it back to the structure of the supporting building.


The most common system is formed of two components, the first is the ‘angle’ which is embedded into the external leaf. This is then welded to a number of ‘brackets’ which are restrained back to the internal structure of the building. This forms the passageway for the external load to be transferred back to the structure.


Masonry Support is required to allow for differential movement between the masonry panels and structure around the building and is normally located at horizontal movement joints, window heads, soffits or large openings. Support is usually installed at every, or every other floor depending on the cavity size, structure type, structure size, and load.


ACS Masonry Support systems are a fully bespoke assembly allowing a solution specifically designed for each scenario.
