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
Ancon will design a MDA system to suit a 50mm cavity and carry 8.0 kN/metre run of masonry.
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.
