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.
Successfully re-engineered by Ancon, the IHR range of internal head restraints can now accommodate gaps at the wall head of up to 75mm, extending the previous maximum of 50mm.
Ancon has been honoured at a Royal reception to celebrate its success in the 2018 Queen’s Awards for Enterprise – the third Queen’s Award for the company.
