THE BRICK BRACE SAFETY SYSTEM
6 safety tools, 6 hooks, 4 couplers, anchor bolts, Instructions, guidance and free delivery within the UK.
(Scaffold tube not included)
GUARANTEED SAFER, SUPERIOR & EASIER MASONRY ALTERATIONS OR YOUR MONEY BACK!
All existing propping methods weaken the lateral strength of the masonry and then rely upon this weakened masonry to work safely, the Brick Brace is the only method that strengthens and stabilises the masonry to prevent collapse.
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
The stability & strength of masonry varies upon every task of which depends upon the length of the opening, the mortar mix, the age & the quality of the masonry. To work correctly & safely a Strongboy relies upon the unknown strength of masonry.
The safe working load of a Strongboy varies upon which sized Acrow prop and which pin hole height is being used, how tightly the Acrow prop is fitted, how plumb and how far the Acrow prop is positioned from the centreline of the propped wall.
The many different tasks of masonry alterations require far more fitting/working access than what the Strongboy can safely offer without dangerously overloading itself.
A Strongboy dangerously misuses an Acrow prop due to the severe eccentricity of the load and because the web of the Strongboy changes the direction of the load onto the side of the Acrow props inner tube of which is only designed for vertical loads (from the head plate down to the foot plate).
An eccentrically loaded Acrow prop curves and loses height when overloaded or over tightened which is the legal duty of the user not to overload and to work with an Acrow prop fitted with a Strongboy in a safe, professional & competent manner even though no warning of this is in place.
The fully tested Brick Brace safety tool increases the unknown variable strength of lime & cement mortar masonry to 40Nm which through testing is proven to be strong and stable enough to prevent collapse during alterations.
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 to gain further fitting space and/or to avoid internal 1st floor wall damage upon finished rooms, we highly recommend bracing the masonry beforehand to reduce the risk of collapse from overloading.
