Introduction

GA Individual Masonry Support Brackets are generally used when use of continuous support is difficult to achieve such as curved brickwork or where masonry is supported from above such as soldier courses. Individual brackets are designed for each specific application ensuring the most cost effective solution for any given loading criteria.

Adjustment

The use of welded serrated pads and punched vertical slots on both the angle and system type brackets offers up to +/- 30mm vertical adjustment.

Service

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

Specifying

To specify GA Support Brackets follow the code as shown below. Note:- The cavity will determine whether an angle or a system is used. Brackets can be supplied with a plain horizontal slot if required.

Example

Example shows brickwork supported by individual brackets fixed back to concrete using M.D. Anchors.

The soldier course brickwork is suspended using stirrups projecting from the underside of the bracket in conjunction with stitching rods built into the brickwork.

The brickwork soffit is suspended using a soffit angle fixed back to the concrete soffit using M.D. Anchors again in conjunction with stitching rods built into the brickwork.
