Folded Angle masonry support systems consist of a length of continuous angle that is fixed directly back to the support structure. This simple, effective angle bracket system is suitable for applications where the cavity is small or where there is a requirement for the cavity to be closed at the support position.
Folded Angle systems are designed and manufactured to engineers’ specifications to suit each individual project. Design is dependent on load, cavity size, fixing type and support level position. The material content of the system is optimised to ensure the most economical solution is designed.
Folded Angle Inverted
Stainless steel Masonry Support Systems support the outer leaf masonry material on steel or concrete framed structures.
Folded Angles can support any outer leaf masonry material including:
Standard Folded Angle Systems
Folded Angles are cold formed and normally supplied in lengths of up to 2 metres. These systems are capable of supporting masonry up to 9 metres in height and can be designed accommodate limited cavity widths.
Folded Angle systems can also be supplied inverted to accommodate situations where the horizontal movement joint is above the fixing position. Where masonry is curved on plan, IG Masonry Support can provide Curved Angles to suit.
Standard IG Folded Angle Configurations
Several variations of our Folded Angle Masonry Support System are shown below. We offer a two configurations:
The system has limited cavity achievements. For applications where large cavities are involved, IG Welded Masonry Support Systems are typically a more economical option.
Adjustability of Folded Angle Masonry Support
Our Folded Angle System provides significant adjustability on two planes to ensure that building tolerances can be accommodated and contact with the reinforcing bar can be avoided.
Vertical slots in the angle with serrated pads allow +/- 15mm adjustment
To accommodate a small increase in cavity width, shims can be inserted between the support structure and the bracket.
Note: If the Folded Angle is fixed to the support structure using Cast-in Channel then horizontal adjustment is also provided.
