Continuous Angle Support
Ancon CFA Systems are suitable for applications where cavities are small or there is a requirement for the cavity to be closed at the support position. The angles are cold formed and will normally be supplied in lengths of up to 2 metres. These systems can carry over 8 metres of brickwork and accommodate various cavity widths.
For many applications, particularly where large cavities are involved, Bracket Angle Support Systems may prove to be a more economical solution.
Details for Specification and Ordering
Ancon CFA Systems are tailored to suit each job, based on the cavity size at the support and the load to be carried. Ancon will design the most economical system. Specification is as follows:
CFA/type/cavity/unfactored masonry load
e.g. CFA / I / 50 / 6.0
Ancon will design a system with an inverted angle to suit a 50mm cavity and carry 6.0kN/metre run of masonry (unfactored).
CFA Standard system
CFA/I Inverted system with the support angle at the top
Some applications demand that the support leg is below the soffit of the structure. Where this is no more than 75mm, this can be specified as a suffix to the standard reference by . . . . . . D drop.
CFA/cavity/unfactored masonry load/drop
e.g CFA / 50 / 5.6 / D 50
Ancon will design a standard system to suit a 50mm cavity, carry 5.6kN/m (unfactored), with an angle drop of 50mm.
Many features will need special design attention, especially if double skin brickwork is to be supported. Fabricated angles with stiffeners, used in conjunction with an bracket angle support system for adjacent single skin brickwork, is often the best solution.
Curved angles can be supplied for arches or other applications.
Ancon will be exhibiting at Evolving Concrete 2016 on Thursday 20th October 2016 at the Royal Berkshire Conference Centre, Reading. Ancon will be on Stand 19 for the duration of the event.
Ancon is proud to sponsor The Concrete Society Awards Dinner which is scheduled to be held at The Grosvenor Hotel, Park Lane, London on 17th November 2016.
