Application

  • WPA are designed for use in buildings subjected to high wind loads and for reduced cavity applications. 
  • WPC are designed to be installed within cavities of 75 mm and above, in buildings subjected to moderate wind loads. 
  • WPS area designed for use in internal blockwork walls or walls with a ‘fair face’ finish that cannot accommodate the windpost protruding off either face.
  • WPABB are designed to provide increased load capacity compared to standard WPA windposts.
  • WPCBB are designed to provide increased load capacity compared to standard WPC windposts. 

Description

A range of stainless steel windposts available in various styles, section sizes and heights to suit structural loading requirements and are supplied complete with vertically adjustable ties to suit coursing levels and necessary fixing bolts.


Windposts span vertically between floors to provide lateral support for masonry panels and are normally fixed as ‘simply supported beams’ with a maximum deflection of span/ 360. Deflection under wind load can restrict the maximum loading. Connections to the frame are designed to allow for vertical adjustment of the structure and site tolerances during installation via a loose top cleat. The choice of fixing and its position are dependent on the type and length of the windpost and the structure.


Type:

  • Wincro WPA Windpost – an angle section post. The windpost leg is built into the inner leaf of the blockwork and tied, using one piece, two-way ties. This allows vertical movement of the structure without internal cracking. In situations that require a vertical movement joint, plain end, two-way ties with de-bonding sleeves are recommended.
  • Wincro WPC Windpost – a channel section post. One-way ties at 225 mm centres secure the post to both inner and outer leaves of masonry.
  • Wincro WPS Windpost – a flat ‘spine plate’ section post. Blockwork is tied through the post using one piece, two-way ties. In situations that require a vertical movement joint, plain end, two-way ties with de-bonding sleeves are recommended.
  • Wincro WPABB Windpost – a heavy duty, double angle section post (T section), the windpost leg is built into the inner leaf of the blockwork and tied, using one piece, two-way ties. In situations that require a vertical movement joint, plain end, two-way ties with de-bonding sleeves are recommended.
  • Wincro WPCBB Windpost – a heavy duty, double channel section post (I section), designed to provide increased load capacity compared to standard WPC windposts. One-way ties at 225 mm centres secure the post to both inner and outer leaves of masonry.
