Masonry Support Systems
Blind fixings for masonry support systems
Masonry support systems are used to reinforce the external leaf of masonry on wall clad buildings with a bracket angle support.
They are designed to provide a horizontal ledge to take the weight of the masonry wall panels above. They are also often referred to as a Brickwork Support System.
The steel angles are fixed back to the structural frame by various masonry restraints depending on whether it is a steel frame or concrete frame.
For applications with a steel frame, the most suitable fixing options are Blind bolts or HD bolts which are fast and simple to install.
There are 4 main types of masonry system these are; Continuous angle, welded steel bracket angle, individual bracket angle support and off the shelf system. All masonry support systems are generally manufactured out of grade 304 stainless steel.
