Introduction

GA Masonry Support Angles are suitable for applications where the cavity does not exceed 50mm or where the underside of the masonry panel is exposed and the cavity needs to be closed.

Support angles can be designed for walls with cavities larger than 50mm but the VESS Support System is usually a more economical option.

GA design each system separately ensuring the most cost effective solution is achieved for any given criteria. The angle design itself is dependent on load, cavity, fixing type and the support level position.

Service

GA undertake the design of the angle section and fixings required and will also produce layout drawings detailing the fixing positions, angle lengths and sectional details for approval prior to manufacture.

Once approved, the layout drawings are then marked up to show individual angle references for ease of location and setting out on site.

Specifying

To specify GA Support Angles follow the code as shown to the right: In some instances an inverted angle may be required. This should be stated at the end of the code:- VEAS / 30C / 10L INVERTED.

Examples of VEAS Masonry Support Angles

Example 1

Example shows a support angle fixed back to concrete via 41/22 toothed channel. The 41/22 toothed channel provides vertical adjustment while punched horizontal slots provide horizontal adjustment.

Specify: VEAS / 25C / 10L

 

 

Example 2

Example shows a support angle fixed back to steelwork using isolated setscrews. The steelwork is drilled/slotted to suit the angle fixing centres. Serrated pads can be used to provide vertical adjustment if required.

Specify: VEAS / 40C / 3L

 

 

Example 3

Example shows a support angle fixed back to steelwork using Molabolts. The steelwork is drilled to suit the angle fixing centres. Serrated pads can be used to provide vertical adjustment if required.

Specify: VEAS / 20C / 5L INVERTED

 

 

Example 4

Example shows a support angle fixed back to concrete via 38/17 cast-in channel. The 38/17 channel provides horizontal adjustment while the use of serrated pads provides vertical adjustment.

Specify: VEAS / 40C / 18L
