Masonry Support

Masonry Support

Masonry Support / Brick Support

Brick, block or stone cladding on steel or concrete framed structures is normally supported by stainless steel masonry support systems.

Frame type, differential movement, type of cladding, masonry load and cavity width all need to be considered when selecting the most appropriate fixing solution. Contact us for advice.

CE Marking

Construction products which fall within the scope of a harmonised European Standard should now carry CE marking under the Construction Products Regulation.

For masonry support systems, the harmonised standard is BS EN 1090-1 Execution of steel structures and aluminium structures: Requirements for conformity assessment of structural components. Ancon complies with all CE marking requirements of this Standard, including designs to EN 1993 (Eurocode 3) and external certification of our factory production controls by an approved body. Ancon is certified to undertake welded fabrication work to Execution Class 2 which covers the vast majority of building applications and is the default class when unspecified.

Bracket Angle Support

AnconOptima and Ancon MDC Systems create a continuous length of angle to support the outer leaf of masonry.

AnconOptima is a standard system where the brackets and angles are supplied as separate components. Ancon MDC systems have brackets welded to the angle and are designed to suit the specific cavity width and masonry load of a project.

Ancon MDC Nexus Bracket Angle Support System

Nexus® by Ibstock Kevington is a lightweight brick faced steel unit which can be simply bolted to Ancon’s MDC stainless steel bracket angle support system to create brick reveals and soffits.

Individual Brackets

MDA Individual Brackets feature short angles and are used to support masonry features such as curves or arches.

Thermal Breaks

Masonry support systems from Ancon can now be supplied with Thermal Breaks to minimise heat loss through cold bridging, and improve the energy efficiency of your building project. For more information, download the brochure.
