The Brick Brace Safety System
3 Brick Brace safety tools, 3 safety hooks, 2 couplers, anchor bolts, full instructions, guidance & free delivery within the UK.
(Scaffold tube not included)
GUARANTEED SAFER, SUPERIOR & EASIER MASONRY ALTERATIONS OR YOUR MONEY BACK!
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.
All existing propping methods rely upon the unoredictable lateral strength of masonry to work safely, the Brick Brace is the only method that strengthens and stabilises the masonry to prevent collapse.
safety tools are fitted three bricks apart in a cement mortar mix, a maximum of two and a half bricks apart in a weak/ lime mortar mix and within every perpendicular joint upon Block work.
Openings of up to 2250mm in a cement mortar mix & 1800mm in a lime mortar mix at any height high or low.

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.
