IG Masonry Support is delighted to have been shortlisted for ‘Innovative Product of the Year’ at the British Construction Awards, ‘Innovation of the Year’ at the London Construction Awards and ‘Most Innovative Product’ at the Building Awards for our Brick Slip Masonry Support Systems.
At IG Masonry Support innovation is key to our business. We focus on creating products that solve common problems on-site and enhance long term building performance. We are thrilled that this commitment to innovation has been recognised by industry experts.
IG’s revolutionary Brick Slip Masonry Support systems are prefabricated units manufactured offsite and delivered complete with bricks bonded to them. Extensive R&D produced a system with minimum components and maximum adjustability, providing simple onsite installation.
The IG brick slip systems offers up to a 90% reduction of on-site labour and a 70% weight saving against alternative traditional methods.
Owen Coyle, General Manager for IG Masonry Support Systems states: “Installers have been extremely impressed with the simplicity and ease of installing The IG system while designers are impressed with the design precision and the detailing. The industry is showing more demand for offsite solutions and IG’s brick slip masonry support and lintels offer offsite benefits of quality control, health and safety benefits on site and reduced requirement for skilled on site labour”.
IG invented the original open back lintel in 1967, which has now become the industry standard. We have taken our structural expertise and combined it with knowledge of our customers’ ever changing needs to lead the way with development of brick slip masonry support products.
With awards ceremonies taking place on 12th and 26th October and 8th November, we hope to take home some silverware.
