GAW2 Windposts

 
The GAW2 range of windposts are of channel section where the post sits in the cavity of the wall, they are generally used for lighter load conditions than the GAW1 type posts.

The use of a GAW2 windpost is governed by the size of the cavity and the load to be supported ie it may not be possible to increase the section of the post and therefore its load capacity due to the size of the cavity.
