Brickwork Restraints, Parapet Channels & Compound Sections

Brickwork Restraints
Hi-Span C-Channels can be used to restrain small block/brickwork walls. The channels sit directly on top of the wall and are connected using sliding anchors. The wall will proved support to the channels about its weak axis, and the channel will restrain the wall against horizontal wind forces. Where walls are erected after the channels, temporary propping will be needed until the wall is in place.
When designing brickwork restraints using the Hi-Span Design Suite, consideration must be made to the higher deflection limits required by both block and brickwork walls.
Restraint must be provided to the outer flange of the channel by a positive fixing to the overlapping cladding.

Parapet Channels
Many buildings are designed to incorperate a parapet to the perimeter to hide the ridge from view. The parapet has a horizontal coping which can require fixing to the internal face, external face and over the top of the parapet.

Compound Sections 
Back to back channels can be used in a variety of applications. For example eaves ties, bracing members and posts. Valuable cost and weight savings can be made when utilising these light weight members.The entire C-Channel range can be used for any of these purposes offering a variety of solutions, please contact our Technical Department for further information.
