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 is a continuous shelf angle which can carry over 8 metres of masonry and accommodate any width of cavity from 40mm in its standard form. Brackets are welded to the angle and the material content of both components is optimised to ensure the most economic solution is designed.
There are several variations of the standard MDC System that allow the shelf angle to be positioned anywhere from the top of the bracket to a position below the bottom of the bracket.
Shelf Angle - Continuous with Non-Welded Brackets
Ancon CFA is a continuous shelf angle, suitable for applications where cavities are small or there is a requirement for the cavity to be closed at the support position. The angles are cold formed and will normally be supplied in lengths of up to 2 metres. These systems can carry over 8 metres of brickwork and accommodate various cavity widths.
Ancon CFA Systems are tailored to suit each job, based on the cavity size at the support and the load to be carried. Ancon will design the most economical system.
For many applications, particularly where large cavities are involved, the Ancon MDC System may prove to be a more economical solution.
