Masonry support, wind posts and lintels from Ancon Building Products
In building construction, steel or concrete frames are topped with masonry cladding, which in turn, is usually supported by stainless steel shelf angles, which are supplied by Ancon Building Products. Several factors need to be taken into consideration when selecting the most suitable shelf angle. Ancon Building Products manufactures continuous length of angle, which are suitable for certain applications and for feature brackets which are welded to the angle. In addition, Ancon Building Products also offers individual brackets with short angles, which are used to support masonry curves or arches.
Wind posts from Ancon Building Products run the vertical length between floors. Thereby, the wind posts also serve to provide additional lateral support for the larger masonry panels, or those with openings. Ancon Building Products offers a type of wind post especially designed for small cavities or those which bear high wind loads.
Ancon Building Products offers lintels which are made of galvanised or austenitic stainless steel. The ‘Housing’ and ‘Unilintel’ range of lintels offered by Ancon Building Products is suitable for most residential and commercial buildings, as it matches their loading conditions.
