Atlas – Masonry Support
Atlas Support is an off the shelf adjustable masonry support solution for modern construction. Fully adjustable on site, Atlas is an excellent alternative to traditionally welded masonry support. The flexible design allows for site tolerances and changes of the facade design without additional cost.
OFF-THE-SHELF MASONRY SUPPORT FOR MODERN CONSTRUCTION
As clients and main contractors take a more proactive approach to design and value engineering, traditional welded masonry support systems are increasingly struggling to deliver the flexibility and adaptability required by modern fast-track projects. Conventional welded systems simply do not allow for on-site
adjustment or accommodate variations in cavities and loads, and the smallest of changes can make an entire system obsolete. These bespoke systems often require a lengthy approval process, take longer to manufacture and are often more expensive to install. This, coupled with a need for fast, flexible construction, Has led ACS to develop a revolutionary alternative.
FRONT-LOADING FOR EFFORTLESS INSTALLATION
For ease of use, Atlas has been designed with a patented front-loading bracket and separate ‘clip-in’ angle. This allows it to be easily fitted and adjusted by only one non-specialist construction worker, reducing labour costs to a minimum and ensuring considerable time savings. For added convenience, Atlas angles are supplied in easy to handle 1000mm** lengths. A standard front-loading corner system, comprising of two 45 degree mitred angles and three brackets per angle is available from stock. An innovative self-encapsulated design with fewer components also means fewer tools are required for installation – minimising the risk of losing equipment or components down the cavity.
