Nexus® Brick-Faced Support

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.

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 Lintels

Nexus brick faced lintels are designed to carry a single leaf of a cavity wall.

Prefabricated from stainless steel for maximum corrosion protection, they offer a quick and simple way of creating deep soffits above window and door openings. They are ideal where speed is important - the permanently bonded brick slip facings, applied off-site, are manufactured from the same batch as the main brickwork providing a seamless blend meaning no compromise on quality or appearance. The lightweight design means the lintels can be simply lifted into place by hand, with no mechanical lifting equipment required, saving time on site.
