C Type Windpost

ACS have designed a C Type windpost to sit within the cavity and eliminate the need for cutting blockwork.

The posts bolt to the structure with suitable fixings.

Furthermore, the use of WPT1 clip on ties to both the external & internal leaf transfer the loadings applied to the cladding back to the structure.
