Modular Brick-Faced Units
Ancon MDC systems can be designed and manufactured to support modular factory made brick-faced units, where brick slips are adhered to either steelwork or precast concrete. The units are simply bolted to the underside of the prefixed support angle. This two-part process provides maximum adjustability, both vertically and horizontally, to ensure alignment.
Nexus® Brick-Faced Support System
Creating brick-faced reveals and soffits is much simpler and quicker with the Nexus® brick faced support system.
The Nexus® system combines a specially developed Ibstock-Kevington lightweight brick faced steel unit with Ancon’s tried and tested MDC stainless steel bracket angle support system. The system offers contractors easier handling coupled with maximum adjustability, both vertically and horizontally, for quick and simple alignment on site.
Being a two-part system, we found the Nexus® brick faced support system easier to install on site than a single piece system. We were able to adjust it quickly and simply and appreciated the flexibility the two-part system offered.

Nexus® brick faced soffit units and lintels were installed at the window heads and entrance way of this major regeneration project on the edge of the 1969 Silchester estate.
This mixed use development, on the southern fringes of the Olympic Park, utilised the Nexus system to achieve flawless brick-faced soffits to the hundreds of door and window heads.
235 Nexus® brick faced soffit units and lintels were installed in window heads and ground level colonnades of this modern, purpose-built community hub.
Ancon will further expand its wide product range with new product launches at the UK’s largest event for specifiers in the built environment, Ecobuild 2017.
Ancon’s latest animated video evaluates the limitations of traditional re-bend continuity systems, including the dangers associated with them, and presents a safer, easier, quicker solution - the KSN Anchor System.
