6 safety tools, 6 hooks, 4 coupler’s, anchor bolts, Instructions, guidance and free prompt UK delivery.
(Scaffold tube not included)
GUARANTEED SAFER, SUPERIOR & EASIER MASONRY ALTERATIONS OR YOUR MONEY BACK!
Every task of altering masonry and fitting permanent supports within existing masonry are different, with each project requiring detailed planning upon its own merit and carried out safely by using the most suitable variety/combination of temporary masonry support equipment, of which should support all of the masonry (to avoid injury from falling debris) and to also offer the correct fitting/working access without dangerously overloading the equipment.
The stability & lateral strength of a structure is unpredictable & varies upon each project; depending on the length of the opening, the masonry mortar mix, the age/deuteriation & the quality of the masonry workmanship. Lime mortar masonry having minimal lateral strength, if any.
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.
