Masonry Support Systems and Windposts
Masonry support systems provide the solution when masonry and brick panels must be restricted in size to avoid stress caused by excessive loading or differential expansion.
Masonry support systems may also be used in a conventional lintel application above openings in concrete and steel frame inner leaf applications.
Windposts are designed to provide lateral support to panels of brickwork or blockwork by spanning between floor structures. They are designed to fit either in a cavity or into the inner skin of the cavity wall and connect into the masonry via one way or two way ties. Wind posts will be fixed top and bottom via a system of plates or angles depending on the requirement on any particular project. Drawings will be provided prior to manufacture for approval.
