Supporting Structure

Qwik-Fix Angle can be fixed back to concrete via mechanical anchors, chemical anchors or cast in channels. Systems can also be fixed back to steel or in certain circumstances, block.

Fixing Back to Concrete:
Concrete Standards:
Working loads are based on a concrete of minimum class C20/25, to BS EN 206-1

Edge Distances & Spacing:
Please click on "Fixings for Concrete" (left) for information on fixing points and methods

Minimum Reinforcement:
To be designed in accordance with BS 8110

Fixing Back to Steel:

Qwik-Fix™ Angle can be fixed to back to uncased steel. The structural edge member must be designed to minimise deflections and accommodate the torsional forces created by eccentric loading from the brickwork.

Bi metallic corrosion and thermal bridging is minimised by using the Qwik-Fix™ Isolation Shim, which comes with every system as standard. There is no need to include the isolation shim in your specification

Fixing Back to Block:                                     

Qwik-Fix™ Angle can be fixed to block, in certain circumstances. This is subject to on-site testing on a case by case basis due to the variance in block densities. Please contact the Qwik-Fix technical team for assistance if fixing to block is unavoidable.
