Description

Brickwork soffits and suspended masonry details can be incorporated into the full range of Wincro WSC masonry support systems. Wincro's masonry support systems are designed by the technical design team to suit your specific architectural aspect and can be adapted to suit special masonry details, including the support of soffit brickwork or atypical coursing positions. System designs can vary due to load, cavity, soffit dimensions, brickwork pattern and coursing.

Hanger tie:

brickwork soffits can be created by suspending a soldier course of brickwork from a stainless steel hanger system. This is achieved by inserting a combination of Wincro hanger wall ties and dowel pins into pre-drilled solid bricks, or inserting grouted/ resin-fixed stitching rods into cored bricks. These special hanger ties fix into Wincro C36 channel, which is welded to the underside of a Wincro WSC brick support angle to create the suspended masonry detail. The ties can be adjusted along the channel to suit the necessary perp joints. Soffit cleats can also be incorporated to carry the masonry detail.

Stitching rod:

another method of creating a suspended soldier course of brickwork uses stainless steel stirrups hung vertically from the masonry support angle. The stirrups fit over the angle (typically at 225 mm centres) and are used in conjunction with stainless steel stitching rods, spanning between stirrups and fed into the cored bricks. Cores are then filled with mortar, creating an invisible lock.

  • Designed to suit your exact requirements.
