Individual brackets can be used to support soldier courses from above and to support non-structural arched brickwork. Both these applications involve MDA individual brackets that have stirrups welded to the underside. Stitching rods span the stirrups and support the three bricks between the brackets.

Ancon MDA brackets are ideal for supporting brickwork that is curved on plan. They can be designed to suit a wider range of loads and cavity widths.
Details for Specification and Ordering
Ancon Individual Brackets are available to suit most cavity sizes and can be specified as follows:
e.g. MDA / 50 / 8.0
Leviat will design an Ancon MDA system to suit a 50mm cavity and carry 8.0 kN/metre run of masonry.
With their new European Technical Assessment (ETA), Halfen HZA serrated anchor channels fulfil all requirements of AS 5216:2021 and can be used in projects across Australia.
Leviat has released an enhanced version of its popular Ancon Shearfix design software that enables engineers to maintain a flat concrete slab at column heads by reinforcing the area against punching shear with a prefabricated, stud-rail system.
