The Titan System consists of a front loaded shelf angle, brackets, lock washers, shims and bolts. With increased adjustability and added strength, the IG Masonry Support Titan System gives engineers peace of mind and provides flexibility onsite.
Titan facilitates front-fit loading of the masonry support shelf for ease of installation while the bracket system is designed to accommodate typical build tolerance on-site, ensuring accurate installations.

Accommodate loads of 8, 10, 12 and
14 kN/m and the system is named simply
to reflect these loading values
(eg Titan10 = up to 10kN/m).
Suitable for use with any outer leaf material:
Standard brackets are available for cavity
widths ranging from 70 to 150mm.
The underside of the shelf angle should be
set 2.5mm above the level of the
compressible filler to allow for any
settlement that may occur as a result of the
vertical dead load imposed by the masonry
and to accommodate expansion of the
IG’s Titan system provides significant adjustability in all three planes to ensure
that building tolerances can be accommodated and contact with the reinforcing bar can
To accommodate a small increase in cavity width, shims can be inserted between the support
structure and the bracket. Shims are available in 2mm and 6mm thicknesses.
2mm shims are provided as standard. The collective number of shims should never exceed
3No. and the thickness of shims used should never exceed 12mm.
A single TITAN system can accommodate a range of cavity widths by
utilising up to a maximum of 12mm shim depth in conjunction with minor
movements of the brick (up to a minimum 2/3 bearing).
Vertical adjustment is offered by means of a toothed Lock Washer. This Lock Washer is inserted
into the serrated slot in the support bracket. The lock washer can be adjusted vertically to move
the bracket higher or lower if required.
The serrated area at the back of the bracket allows up to 22mm of adjustment in either
direction on the vertical plane. The lock washer also offers fine adjustment by rotating it through
180 degrees; this is achieved by the offset hole in the lock washer.
The Titan system offers +/- 25mm lateral adjustment from
the centre line of the bracket.
