Brick Brace review
By Lateral solutions group ltd
Having been a builder now for over 30 years, I could be justifiably accused of being stuck in my ways in certain aspects of the building trade, one of those areas are removing sections of load bearing walls and creating new window and door openings tools required, Props, Needles & Strong boys . . . . . Not anymore!
After reading an article regarding safe working loads when using Acrow props, in a nut shell the load calculations are as follows :-
An Acrow prop, max S.W.L is 3,400Kg
Two Acrow props & a needle method this is then reduced to max S.W.L 1,700kg
An Acrow fitted with a prop attachment ( Strongboy) this is then reduced to max S.W.L 340Kg
So with a little research on the best kept secret in the building trade . . .
Brick Brace steps into the ring!
I’ve used this product now for nearly 1 year, first of all, it’s like carrying around 12 Acrows,5 Needles & two Strongboys in a small tool box, Great start!
Secondly, does it work & How?
The answer to the first question is an easy yes it does!
The answer to the second question, without sounding like a salesman for this product is as follows:-
A single brace that fits in your hand can support an opening of up to 1575mm opening supporting the full triangle of Cement, mortar & masonry above.
With the full kit, as mentioned carried in a small toolbox capable of supporting an opening of up to 4500mm with the use of only 1 prop to the middle! No Acrow hindering access for the installation of steels, no repairing brickwork above where to needles were! Window opening above ground floor. . A breeze!
Finally in my opinion . . . IT’S A KNOCK OUT!! Brick brace wins, hands down!
I have now vowed as a builder to stop living in the dark ages and start moving forward with new equipment and new methods of construction.
