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.
Shelf Angle - Short Lengths, Individual Brackets
Individual brackets feature short angles and are used to support masonry features such as curves or arches.
Ancon is exhibiting at the 2016 NZ Bridges Summit on 1st - 2nd November in Auckland. The conference is endorsed by the NZ Transport Agency (NZTA) and we will be showcasing our BT range of threaded reinforcement couplers, our MBT range of bolted couplers and various Lifting Systems including our brand new EdjPro Narrow Anchor system.
Having recently identified issues with the performance of some batches of reinforcing steel supplied to us, we have introduced batch testing for all reinforcement used in combination with our BT coupler system in New Zealand to ensure compatibility.
