Masonry Support

Masonry Support

Masonry cladding on steel or concrete framed structures is normally supported by stainless steel shelf angle.

Frame type, differential movement, type of cladding, masonry load and cavity width all need to be considered when selecting the most appropriate solution.

Shelf Angle - Continuous with Welded Brackets

Ancon MDC Systems create a continuous length of angle to support the outer leaf of masonry. They are designed to suit specific applications and feature brackets that are welded to the angle.

Shelf Angle - Continuous with Non-Welded Brackets

Unlike welded systems, the brackets and angles of an AnconOptima system are supplied as separate components. This provides greater flexibility in the final fixing position of the brackets - ideal for post-tensioned concrete.
