GA Masonry Support Systems comprise of brackets welded to continuous angles at pre-designated fixing centres. They are suitable for cavities in excess of 45mm.
Support systems are ‘tailor made’ to suit every individual application ensuring cost effective design solutions for every masonry support requirement.
The brackets offer up to +/- 30mm vertical adjustment by utilising an 18 x 70 vertical slot in conjunction with a welded serrated pad.
The welded serrated pad stops any potential slip.
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 for approval prior to manufacture.
Once approved, the layout drawings are 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:
Additional subscripts may be added to the specification to indicate factors which affect the design of the system, m = masonry thickness (if different to 102mm) p = drop below structure soffit d = angle drop below bracket n = bracket notched (to suit projecting SFS)
Examples of Vista VESS Masonry Support System
Example shows a support system fixed back to concrete via fixing cleats anchored into the top of the slab. Slots in the fixing cleat provide horizontal adjustment while the bracket provides vertical adjustment. This method of fixing is useful for lightweight slabs and hollow core planks where fixing to the face cannot be achieved.
