Stone Support Restraint

ACS combined stone support and restraint can be used for the installation and restraint of stonework to a block work wall. An anchor is inserted into a predrilled and resin fixed hole and set into position. By the use of different lengths of anchor, the ACS combined stone support and restraint can be made to suit a variety of cavity depths. The nuts either side of the angle allow the position of the angle to be fine-tuned on site to give the correct cavity between the stone and the block work structure.
The top of a stone can then be restrained using the dowel while the nest stone can be both supported and restrained using the same dowel as the stone below.

Technical Data

The ACS combined support and restraint is manufacture in grade 304 austenitic stainless steel. Utilising a high strength resin fixing combined with an internally designed support system, each angle is capable of taking an unfactored load of 500N in shear and 500N in direct tension. The system has been designed to suit the requirements of BS 8298 ( the design and installation of natural stone cladding and lining) as an effective method of stone fixing and also stone restraint. The maximum distances from the front of the angle to the masonry are as follows;

M10 System M12 System
Distance from Masonry to the front of angle 30mm 55mm

Alternative systems for higher design loads or cavities can be designed.
