All standard Qwik-Fix™ Angle configurations are suitable for cavity widths ranging from 70mm to 200mm. Brackets for narrower cavities can be fabricated on a case by case basis. When designing for cavity widths greater than 150mm in width, we recommend you contact the Qwik-Fix technical department for design assistance on fixing details.
Qwik Fix™ Angle is supplied in configurations to accommodate design loads ranging between 1kN/m and 20kN/m.
Qwik-Fix™ Angle is suitable for use with most outer leaf materials: brickwork, fairface blockwork, rendered blockwork, exterior insulation panels, cut stone and reconstituted stone.
Masonry Load Assumptions for Brick, Block & Render per BS 648 (1964):
|Material||Density kg/m³||Unfactored Panel Load kN/m²||*Factored Panel Load kN/m²|
|Blockwork & Medium Density Clay Brickwork (100mm wide)||2150||2.15||3.01|
|Blockwork & Medium Density Clay Brickwork (215mm wide)||2150||4.62||6.50|
|Sand & Cement Render (12.7mm thick)||1888||0.24||0.34|
|High Density Clay Brickwork||2327||2.33||3.30|
* Factored Panel Load = (Unfactored Characteristic Load x 1.4 Factor of Safety)
Design Load (kN/m) = [Factored Panel Load (kN/m²) x Panel Height (m)]
|Factored Load Range (kN/m)||Specify As Follows:|
|1 – 2||K02 - [Insert Cavity Width]|
|3 – 4||K04 - [Insert Cavity Width]|
|5 – 6||K06 - [Insert Cavity Width]|
|7 – 10||K10 - [Insert Cavity Width]|
|11- 12||K12 - [Insert Cavity Width]|
|13 – 14||K14 - [Insert Cavity Width]|
|15 – 16||K16 - [Insert Cavity Width]|
|17 – 18||K18 - [Insert Cavity Width]|
|19 – 20||K20 - [Insert Cavity Width]|
For other materials, please refer to manufacturers’ guidelines and/or appropriate standard to determine material density and calculate design load as above.
