Window fixing straps are used when an indirect fixing is required. Usually steel to ensure a secure fixing directly to the main structure, galvanized to prevent rusting. Its recommended that they are at least 2mm thick (14 SWG) and approx 25mm x 200mm.
When using fixing straps always ensure the product load is transferred to the main structure with a positive fixing, avoid mortar joints, brick or block edges.
Any fixing should be subject to the requirements of a structural engineer prior to manufacture and installation.
We can also fabricate fixing straps to fit your requirement. Call us now on 01484 45 11 77.
