Individual Brackets - Deansgate, Manchester, UK
Ancon Individual Support Brackets provide great flexibility in the design of brickwork. They are used to support curved brickwork, arches and where the soffit of a soldier course has to be seen to be unsupported from below.
Supplied to Henry Boot Construction on the Knott Mill Luxury Apartments in Manchester, Ancon Individual Support Brackets proved the ideal solution to supporting curved brickwork on the south side of the six storey development.
As part of Ancon’s free design service, plans were produced of each support level illustrating the location and reference of all the fixings required.
Ancon’s project management service ensured all products were designed, manufactured and delivered to suit the contractors’ progress on site.
The Ancon MDA Individual Bracket Support System is designed and manufactured to meet the specific cavity width and masonry load of an application.
Brick, block or stone cladding on steel or concrete framed structures is normally supported by stainless steel masonry support systems.
Following recent fire tests at BRE Global, Ancon is pleased to confirm that its innovative basalt-fibre, low thermal conductivity wall ties, Teplo-BF and Teplo-L, offer 120 minute fire resistance, making them suitable for buildings of any height.
After a string of Awards successes for the Teplo range, the new Teplo-BF low thermal conductivity wall tie has been shortlisted in the ‘Best Innovation in Insulation” category of the 2016 Build It Awards.
