Stock product to suit 60mm to 150mm cavities in 5mm units

Ancon Optima is a bracket angle masonry support system. Systems comprise laser-cut brackets, two-step angles with pre-marked fixing zones and locking wedges to ensure the correct contact is achieved between the two.

Standard Systems

  • Standard systems, referenced AnconOptima 10, 12 and 14, support an unfactored masonry load of up to 10kN, 12kN and 14kN per metre respectively.
  • The brackets used across the three standard systems are universal and are available to suit cavities from 60mm to 150mm (stocked in 5mm increments). Brackets are simply changed on site to allow for cavity variations.
  • Standard brackets are available to suit cavities from 60mm to 150mm

Benefits of Standard Systems

  • More adjustable than welded bracket systems
  • Specified by using simple load/cavity charts
  • No requirement for detailed layout drawings
  • Supplied from stock
  • Faster to install
  • Easier to move around site
  • Unused items can be used on the next project or restocked

Thermal Breaks

  • Ancon Optima systems are suitable for use with Ancon Thermal Breaks. Ancon Thermal Breaks minimise heat loss through cold bridging, and improve the energy efficiency of your building project.

Non-Standard Systems

  • Ancon Optima can be designed to suit other applications. Typical applications are unfactored loads up to 20kN/m or where a different angle position on the bracket is needed e.g. projecting angle.


  • Ancon Optima angles have a 100mm pre-marked fixing zone which provides 50mm horizontal adjustment. If fixing into concrete with expansion bolts, the bracket can be moved to eliminate clashes between the bolts and reinforcing bars. Horizontal adjustment can be increased by fixing the system to an Ancon channel cast into the face of the concrete. If fixing to steelwork, the brackets can be moved to align with the location of a hole, negating the need for a more expensive horizontal slot to be provided.
  • Vertical adjustment is achieved by the deep slot in the back of the bracket.

Specification Clause for Standard System

  • Ancon Optima 10/12/14 standard masonry support system comprising a ‘W’ profile stainless steel angle complete with slide on, interchangeable fixing brackets to suit varying cavity width.
  • Fix back to concrete/steelwork using expansion bolts/cast-in channel/stainless steel set screws/SteelgripTM.
  • System to be installed in accordance with Leviat's instructions.
  • Manufactured in Grade 1.4301 (304) Austenitic Stainless Steel.
