A flush angle and bracket arrangement will be specified if the relieving angle system is required to support masonry at head level, effectively acting as a lintel. This is often the case where wide-span windows and corner openings form part of the building's design.
If this is the case, it makes sense to design the building to include a reinforced concrete ring beam, dropped to head level and allow Qwik-Fix Angle to wrap the building completely. This approach allows a single product to fulfill the dual requirements of providing adequate head support and providing movement joints within the masonry panel.
Flush brackets are often used together with a plaster key or cavity closer plate, which are welded to the bottom of the support angle. They are suitable for use with most window details, but please contact the Qwik-Fix technical department if you have any doubts or queries.
