Bricks have been the most popular building material since ancient times until the present days. A brick wall has many advantages such as good thermal and sound insulation, it also holds the load. Brick facades as well are exceptionally beautiful. However, thick brick walls are now the matter of the past. Today the construction of a modern wall is made out of several layers and bricks are laid only on the outside. The layer width of such wall is 85-120 mm. Such facade can be put on a foundation as well as hung on the retaining walls and structures. Steel brackets for brick veneer facades not only give us this possibility but also allow us to fulfill the bravest architectural solutions.
Very often big shop windows are built on the first floor of the building while brick decoration starts only on the second or even the third floor. Such projects are very popular in big cities. The main principle of such assembling is as follows: stainless steel brackets are adapted to holding reinforced concrete structure one brick at a distance. Bricklaying can be varied: one brick row or if you need several rows of bricks can be hung below the bracket. At first the armature is placed into mortar above the first row of bricks and then the second row of bricks is placed on the bracket. Later the other two brick rows are also reinforced with armature.
