Wincro offers an extensive range of Masonry Support systems for fixing to concrete structures, as featured below.

All systems are carefully designed by our Technical Design Team to suit the specific application and our optimisation design package ensures the most cost-effective system is designed quickly and safely. Systems are designed to suit the masonry height to be supported, the cavity width and structural fixing position.

Various fixing solutions are available including the use of T-head bolts into Cast-In Channels, site drilled expansion bolts or the use of resin anchor products.

WSC Bracket System

Wincro WSC Bracket System comprises a continuous thin angle support complete with welded brackets incorporating a serrated slot and adjustment washer. Capable of supporting masonry over 9m in height and designed to suit cavities greater than 40mm, Wincro WSC systems are ideal for most applications.

Adjustment

The WSC Bracket System allows for adjustment in all three planes. Casting WC38 cast-in channels into the edge of the slab provides almost unlimited horizontal adjustment, while our Wincro serrated slot fixing gives vertical adjustment of +/- 26mm. Lateral adjustment is provided by the use of stainless steel packing shims between the system and structure.

For non-standard situations, please contact our Technical Design Team for further advice.

Detailed general arrangement (layout) drawings are provided with our masonry support designs, fully referencing systems, fixings and installation details prior to manufacture.

Systems can be adapted to suit special masonry details including the support of soffit brickwork or atypical coursing positions. Angles can also be supplied curved on plan to suit radiused masonry.

Specification Details/Ordering

The following is an example of a WSC Bracket Support systems specification. All are designed to suit the masonry height to be supported, the cavity width and structural fixing position.

WSC cavity/masonry height/fixing type/other Example: WSC100 / 4.0 / T

Wincro WSC system in grade 1.4301 (304) stainless steel. System designed to suit 100mm cavity and 4m high 100/102 thick masonry. Fixed to concrete with Wincro WBT T Head Bolts.

WSCFA Cold Formed Angle / Gusset Angle System

Wincro WSCFA Cold Formed Angle Support systems are generally used where there is a reduced cavity situation or a need for the cavity to be closed at the support location. Comprising a traditional support angle, WSCFA systems are capable of supporting masonry over 9m in height and can be designed to incorporate all the fixing methods employed for other masonry support systems shown in this section.

Where larger cavities are encountered, WSC Bracket Support systems tend to be more cost-effective.

WSCFA Angles are normally supplied in lengths up to 3 metres and can be supplied with either serrated vertical slots or welded serrated patches where vertical adjustment needs to be designed into the system. Where vertical adjustment has been accommodated in the structure, for example using WC41 Toothed Channel, the WSCFA system can be supplied with horizontally slotted holes.

The WSCFA Angle system can also be supplied inverted to accommodate situations where the coursing level/horizontal movement joint is above the fixing position. Sample configurations are shown below.
