Mr S. Dunaway

 (Builder, Surrey)

 Top quality product.

“After taking the time to read and understand what the Brick Brace has to offer, I can now appreciate the impact this system can have on improving the safety of structural alterations.
After all structural alterations are the only general construction based procedures where NO training or advice is offered to any tradesman”.

“For me, Brick Brace is not just a product; it has provided an understanding of the task, with clear guidance on the limitations of all the equipment.
I also received very helpful advice and instructions from the guys at Brick Brace regarding my own project.
I challenge you all to find another company so invested in your own safety when it comes to structural alterations”.

For Every Builders Tool Box

Using The Brick Brace; Step One


A 35 degree angle in a stretcher bond and a 25 degree angle in a Flemish bond from both ends of the opening, carrying up to the central perpendicular joint where both angles meet is the 14

When an opening is made within an existing wall and a load point is intact. the triangle of brickwork above the opening is the only masonry that requires support due to the brickwork above naturally arching. 

However, upon larger openings and the 3 points do not remain, this law changes. And the weight of all of the storey height rests back over the length of the opening, due to the brickwork not having the correct arching effect,

This masonry can weigh up to 10 times more than only the small triangle and is why tongued prop attachments are so easily 15

Re-instate A load point

Fit the Brick Brace Safety tool through the top of a broken triangle and it becomes complete, reducing the load to a minimum and safely reducing the number of props required, cost effective without compromising safety.

Single Brick Brace Safety Tools

To Fit the Brick Brace; use a hammer drill with a 10mm masonry bit to remove the mortar from the required perpendicular joint. Whether left or right-handed insert the Brick Brace safety tool into the drilled out joint with the centre set screw being on your favoured side and engage fully to the angled plate. Ensure the rear nuts allow both plates to run parallel with each other when the tool is expanding within the joint. To increase tool life, do not hammer the tools when joints are tight, use either an 11mm masonry drill bit, mechanical mortar raker or a file to increase joint size. Use a 19mm spanner/torque wrench to tighten the central set screw approximately 40Nm. The masonry is now reinforced and ready for safer alterations, clearer access and superior results.

A single tool can be used to create openings of up to six brick lengths upon 4” brickwork within a cement mortar mix, supporting all 15 bricks within the triangle of masonry above at any height with nothing to obstruct the fitting area and a five-brick length opening is achievable within a lime mortar mix. Ensure all three points of the triangle of brickwork above the opening are intact and the brickwork is free of voids.

When an opening is required within both sides of a cavity or 9” wall, it is recommended to brace externally and prop internally when suitable, leaving the external face side clear for scaffolding and working access, at any height.

Brick Brace Safety Tools are fitted within the course directly above a proposed opening at a maximum of three bricks apart in a cement mortar mix and a maximum of two and a half bricks apart within a weak or lime mortar mix.

Single safety tools are also used to stabilise the unpredictable lateral strength of a structure, to re-instate a load-point which safely reduces the weight of the load and used as an aid to support the un-held brickwork in between props to reduce the risk of minor & major collapse when propping.

Prop & Brace; We do not endorse the misuse of any temporary masonry support equipment however as it’s become strangely acceptable to overload tongued prop attachments through over extending from the wall to gain sufficient access, we highly recommend bracing all eccentrically propped brickwork to prevent the same needless recurring accidents caused through overloading due to the unpredictable lateral strength of the structure.


Fit a permanent support within existing masonry at any height with the correct fitting/work access. Replace lintels, fit new fire guards, cavity trays & D.P.C’s with ease. Re-instate a load-point to reduce the weight of the load and an under-pinning aid. Strengthen/stabilise lime mortar masonry to eliminate the risk of collapse and aids most remedial works, brickwork renovations & repairs.
