Masonry Reinforcement & Windposts (PDF, 2.79 MB)
Designed to provide all necessary information to assist product selection and also to act as a good reference document for anyone involved in masonry construction, the new literature includes Ancon AMR Bed Joint Reinforcement and Ancon Windposts.
Bed Joint Reinforcement and Windposts are designed to provide additional lateral support for panels
Ancon AMR is a fabricated and flattened stainless steel reinforcement which locates in the bed joint to strengthen a wall. There are two options available - AMR and AMR-X. Ancon AMR-X is based on standard Ancon AMR masonry reinforcement, but with shaped rather than straight cross wires, ensuring they are located in the centre of a bed joint and are completely surrounded by mortar. This innovative design is a simple, cost-effective way to correct poor site practice.
Windposts are designed to suit your specific construction and load conditions. They are suitable for use where standard AMR ladder type masonry reinforcement is inadequate or when there is a requirement to split a large masonry panel. They can be installed into either the inner leaf of blockwork or into the cavity leaving the blockwork undisturbed.
Parapet Posts, used as vertical support for brickwork in parapet panels, are also available.
