Qwik Fix Masonry Support Systems

When To Use Qwik-Fix Angle

Masonry and brick panels must be restricted in size to avoid fa├žade cracking due to differential expansion and compressive stress fracturing. Differential expansion is caused by thermal fluctuations and moisture absorption.

Qwik-Fix recommends masonry support angles should be provided at every single or second story level in buildings which exceed 9m in height. Qwik-Fix masonry relieving angles are also commonly used as lintels over wide-span or corner openings
