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.
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.
To specify GA Support Angles follow the code as shown below. In some instances an inverted angle may be required. This should be stated at the end of the code:- VEAS / 30C / 10L INVERTED.
Additional subscripts may be added to the specification to indicate factors which affect the design of the angle, m = masonry thickness, p = drop below structure soffit
Once approved, the layout drawings are marked up to show individual angle references for ease of location and setting out on site.
