GUARANTEED SAFER, SUPERIOR & EASIER MASONRY ALTERATIONS OR YOUR MONEY BACK!

When knowing every task of masonry alterations is different, each project will be planned upon its own merit and carried out safely by using a combination/variety of temporary masonry support equipment most suitable that also stabilises the structure, supports all of the masonry and gives the correct fitting/working access.

  –

The many different scenarios of masonry alterations require far more preparation than only using Acrow props fitted with Strongboy’s as they do not offer the correct fitting work space for every task without dangerously overloading the structure above.

We created the Brick Brace to provide further options, to counter act all of the hidden problems of eccentrically propping, to make alterations more controllable, safer and easier during the task and to ensure future generations are taught correctly.

LIGHT YEARS AHEAD

The award winning Brick Brace safety tools are inserted into drilled out mortar perpendicular joints and tightened with a 19mm ratchet spanner, increasing the unknown lateral strength of bonded lime & cement mortar masonry with a force of 40Nm which through vigorous testing is proven to be strong and stable enough to prevent collapse.

The Half set offers openings up to 3,150 mm, approx 14 brick lengths with no Acrow props or Strongboys to impede access, supporting all  91 bricks within the triangle of masonry above the opening, (Stretcher bond), at any height high or low.

Fitted 3 bricks apart in a cement mortar mix, a maximum of 2.5 bricks apart within a lime or weak mortar mix and within every perpendicular joint upon block work.

Superior results and time saved GUARANTEED!

To Brace masonry, the force required upon the safety tools is estimated at 700N, for a safety factor of x 3 the force required in the safety tool is 2.1kN.

A recommended torque of 40Nm produces a force of 3.28kN which is more than adequate even allowing for some fall off in force as the tool beds in. This torque is also readily achievable on site and was also used in the test via a ratchet spanner. It also provides a force well below that to crush the end faces of the brick. When bricks were removed from below there was no distress whatsoever, no visible movement or cracking which suggested that the calculations are very reasonable.

    Brilliant tool,well made,you feel more confident nothings going to drop. less acrows so easier to get the steels up in tight sites,narrow kitchens ect ,no more dodgy strong boys trying to keep both skins supported .clients happier as they keep there kitchen running longer before the knock through.definitely the way forward.cheers Mickey

    The best tool I have used for years. Very easy to install and can fit in a tool bag, no more using strong boys or acrows makes a hard job very easy now. Would highly recommend for builders, bricklayers and DIY. Great tool at a great price.
