ACS provides a wide range of brickwork support & masonry support systems designed to support the external leaf of masonry for all types of structure. The presence of a masonry support angle allows differential movement of the structure and the external cladding via a horizontal movement joint.
Horizontal movement joints are usually positioned at every storey or every other storey depending on the detail. However, the maximum allowable height of masonry to be supported is 9m or 3 storeys in height – whichever is less (refer to BS 5628: Part 1 – 1992). ACS' masonry support range includes conventional support, Atlas support and shims.
