Adjustable Disc Soffit Support
The ACS Adjustable Disc Soffit Support can be used for the installation of stonework to the soffit of a concrete structure.
A small expansion anchor is inserted into a predrilled 8mm diameter hole and hammer set into position using the provided setting tool. The threaded rod is then screwed into position utilising the anchors internal thread.
By the use of different lengths of threaded bar the ACS Disk Soffit Support can be made to suit any cavity depth. The nuts either side of the disk allow the height of the system to be fine-tuned on site to give the correct cavity between the stone and the concrete structure.
The ACS adjustable Soffit Support is manufactured in grade 304 austenitic stainless steel. Utilising high strength concrete anchors,each disk is capable of taking a design load of 750N. The system has been designed to suit the reuirements of Bs 8298 (The design and installation of natural stone cladding and lining) as an effective method of stone fixing and also stone restraint.
A minimum of 4 disk supports will be required per stone to ensure sufficient restraint at a spacing exceeding 90mm between fixings.
Stones must be temporarily propped during installation until disk is supporting two stones so as to stop any turning forces that may be produced.
Alternative systems for higher design loads can be designed. Please contact ACS for further information.
