“The Brick Brace is as simple as masonry alterations can be without cutting corners or compromising safety”.

It’s not possible for a Strongboy or any similar designed product to give the correct fitting/work space for every task without dangerously overloading itself, further equipment is needed.

We know safer & easier methods and provide guidance and a correct procedure to help, teach and influence the majority of builder’s to change their bad habits and to help prevent the same needless reoccurring accidents.

The main cause of collapse during masonry alterations is overloading due to over extending strongboy’s from the wall to gain more fitting access and/or to avoid internal wall damage upon finished 1st floor rooms as eccentrically loading an Acrow prop greatly affects its capacity.

To maintain the maximum 340kg safe working load the tongue of a Strongboy must fully penetrate the internal skin when supporting a cavity wall, as seen in the drawing below.

hse 1

When the Acrow prop is removed from the wall to avoid internal wall damage and/or to gain more fitting space the safe working load reduces to an unknown quantity.

The misleading theory behind a Strongboy is to use fewer Acrow props and to reduce masonry damage and is marketed within that manner, which certainly is not the case when the maximum safe working load is only a fraction (1/5) of the correct propping and needling method and when maintaining the 340kg safe working load the hole within both sides of the cavity wall or a 9″ wall is actually larger than fitting a needle and with at least five times more fitting holes required than one 1,700kg safe working load needle.


To avoid collapse, an overloaded Strongboy is solely dependent upon the stability of the masonry which is why the Brick Brace should also be used when possible if using Strongboy’s.

Fit a permanent support within existing masonry at any height high or low with the correct fitting/work access. Replace lintels, fit new cavity trays & D.P.C’s with ease. Re-instate a load-point to reduce the weight of the load. Use the Brick Brace as an under-pinning aid to strengthen & stabilise lime mortar masonry and to aid all remedial works, brickwork renovations & repairs.

The More Temporary Support Methods Known, The Safer & Easier The Different Tasks Of Masonry Alterations Become, full instructions of use via our instruction/download page. 

The stability & strength of masonry is unknown and varies upon every task of which is dependent on the mortar mix, the quality & the age of the masonry.

The fully tested Brick Brace increases the unknown & variable strength of masonry to 40Nm which through testing is proven to be strong and stable enough to prevent collapse during alterations and is fully recognised by the Health and Safety Executive (H.S.E), the temporary works forum (Twf), the Institute of Structural engineers (Istructe) and C.R.O.S.S. (the confidential reporting on structural safety).

The Maximum Safe Working Loads


A correctly used Acrow prop, maximum safe working load, 3,400Kg.

An Acrow prop used within the props and needles method, maximum 1,700Kg.

 When fitted with a Strongboy or any similar designed product, the Acrow props safe working load is severely reduced by at least 90%, from 3,400kg down to the maximum 340kg and can even reduce down to 0kg of which depends on the size & the working height of the Acrow prop, how plumb, how tightly fitted and how far the Acrow prop is positioned from the centre of the wall and is fully explained why within our 2018 propping guide.

We do not endorse the misuse of any temporary support equipment but anyone that continues to overload Strongboy’s through over extending from the wall, we highly recommend bracing the masonry beforehand to reduce the risk of minor and major collapse, especially within lime mortar masonry.


 Trial Set £80.00

Clear access on all sized Openings up to 1,800mm in lime mortar masonry and up to 2,250mm within cement mortar masonry

 Half set £150.00 

Openings up to 3,150 mm (14 brick lengths) at any height, high or low with full access to the task.

Full Set £275.00

Openings up to 4,500mm with only one Acrow prop fitted central and also use as a safety belt above larger openings to help reduce the weight of the load and support all the brickwork in-between props.

Purchase and use with confidence after reading all of our feedback & reviews.

The fully tested Brick Brace safety tool increases the unknown variable strength of masonry to 40Nm which through testing is proven to be strong and stable enough to prevent minor & major collapse during alterations.
