GASS Masonry Support System

 

G.A. masonry support systems comprise of brackets welded to continuous angles at pre-designated fixing centres and are suitable for cavities in excess of 45mm.

G.A. support systems are ‘tailor made’ to suit every individual application ensuring cost effective design solutions for every masonry support requirement.


Adjustment

The brackets offer up to +/- 30mm vertical adjustment by utilising an 18 x 70 vertical slot in conjunction with a welded serrated pad. The welded serrated pad stops any potential slip.

Service

G.A. undertake the design of the system and fixings required and will also produce layout drawings detailing the fixing positions, angle lengths and sectional details for approval prior to manufacture.

Once approved the layout drawings are then marked up to show individual angle references for ease of location and setting out on site.

Specifying

To specify G.A. Support Angles follow the code as shown below:
