  • Easily specified from simple load/cavity charts
  • Greater adjustment compared with welded bracket systems
  • No requirement for detailed layout drawings

System to be installed in accordance with Wincro installation instructions.
Manufactured in Grade 1.4301 (304) Austenitic Stainless Steel.

Cavity Variations

Ultima is designed so that the interchangeable brackets allow for significant deviations in the position of the structural face. Cavity variances are easily overcome just by clipping off the ‘old’ bracket and replacing with a new larger/smaller one to suit.

The use of shims can also adjust for slight deviations. Wincro Ultima has been developed to fix back to range of structures using approved Wincro fixings as below.

Fully Adjustable

Wincro Ultima provides greater on-site adjustment compared with ‘traditional’ welded systems. Brackets can be simply changed on site to suit cavity variances between the structure and brickwork.

Vertical adjustment of +/- 26mm is provided by the patented Wincro slot within the brackets. Horizontal adjustment is provided within the coloured angle ’fixing zone’ to accommodate predrilled holes in steelwork or clashes with reinforcing bar in concrete frames.

Installation

Two brackets are installed onto the structure and the angle simply rotates into position from the front. The system can then be line and levelled accordingly prior to hammering in the locking pins to secure the angle in place. Tightening the supplied fixings to the specified torque completes installation. Full installation instructions are provided with all systems.

Cutting on site

Standard Ultima angles may be cut on site to suit the particular length of run. Standard factory made left-hand and right-hand corners are also available.

Fixings

Wincro Ultima can be supplied to suit a wide range of applications including fixing to concrete, steel beam and steel RHS framed structures.

Available for fixing to Concrete using:

  • Wincro WBT T-head Bolt to continuous cast-in channel, or
  • Wincro WBEB Expansion Bolts, or
  • Wincro WBRC Resin Anchor System

Fixing to Steelwork using:

  • Wincro WBXS Isolated Set Screw & Isolation to steel plates/gussets within the steelwork beam (UB/UC)
  • To Hollow sections using: Wincro WBBB Blind Bolt Fixing & Isolation (to RHS / SHS sections)
Non-Standard Systems

Wincro Ultima can be designed to suit other applications or details and our Technical Design Team will be happy to discuss your exact requirements. Special systems can be designed to suit support levels below the soffit of the structure, higher loads or to suit other structural details. Contact Wincro for more information.
