The UK’s first range of A1 non-combustible brick slip system, Azure II™
includes brick-faced soffit and lintels for use on residential and commercial buildings of any height.
The original Azure was Europe’s first brick-faced soffit solution. When first released to the market, it changed how the entire industry thought about what was possible with masonry support.
Today, ACS has once again changed how the industry thinks about and views brick-faced soffits and lintels.
With fire safety and ever-increasing concern, ACS manufactured the Azure II™ to both meet and surpass existing and future industry regulations. As such, it is the only brick slip system to achieve A1 status – the highest attainable – and has been deemed the safest solution on the market.
The New Standard
Future building regulations are likely to ban the use of combustible materials for use in construction projects.
The Azure II™ was created to supersede combustible and fire-rated brick-faced bolt up and lintel systems. With fire safety and ever-increasing concern, ACS designed the Azure II™ to both meet and surpass existing and future industry regulations.
Tested as A1 non-combustible and certified by the BBA, the Azure II™ has changed what is possible when it comes to brick-faced bolt ups and lintels.
Both the lintels and bolt ups have been independently tested by Notified and Technical Approval Bodies to evaluate and validate the load capacity, physical performance, and long term durability of all components.
The lintels have been designed in line with the requirements of BS EN 845-2 and PD 6697, and tested in line with BS EN 846-9. Bolt ups were tested using the guidance of EAD 090062-00-0404.
Non-combustible rated as defined in BS EN 13501-1:2018.
A Bespoke Solution
Azure II™ is designed and manufactured to your exact specification and requirement. The adjustable system can easily accommodate on-site tolerances to ensure a seamless brick soffit or reveal without any unsightly joins or a dreaded ‘patchwork’ effect finish. Even damaged bricks can be replaced on-site, prior to the final install.
This is possible due to the Azure II™ being a purely mechanical system that’s free of resin or adhesive substances. This not only offers increased safety but increased strength too; the Azure II™ is 30% stronger than resin-based products.
