Achieving intricate brick patterns and deep brick soffits around window heads and openings has become easier, quicker and more cost efficient to achieve, down to IG Masonry Support.
This is because of the lightweight Brick on Soffit System range developed by the company.
IG’s B.O.S.S technology can accommodate a wide range of bond patterns and creates spectacular brick soffits. Installed to a pre-fitted masonry support system, B.O.S.S. allows increased adjustability along three axes.
While the Brick on Soffit System ensures speed of installation, it provides the quality associated with production offsite in factory controlled conditions, which makes B.O.S.S. unique.
Bricks are taken from site and cut down to 25mm slips and bonded to IG’s structural stainless steel units. The wonder of the technology lies within IG’s patent. The stainless steel is perforated to allow the BBA approved epoxy adhesive to protrude through the perforations to create a mechanical lock.
The finished product creates the illusion of floating beams of brickwork, blending seamlessly with surrounding brickwork.
The patented BOSS technology has been utilised on multiple award winning projects, with IG themselves having won awards for its innovative approach to product design.
