Windpost for Brickwork
HWP Windposts are used in combination with suitable wall ties, to restrain brickwork walls against wind pressure and suction. The windposts are made from specially designed channels that have welded plates with slotted holes in order to be easily and securely fixed onto the reinforced concrete beams.
The windposts can be specially designed and manufactured suitable to withstand the wind loads on the project. The span distances of the channels may be arranged according to the structural integrity and the restrictions of the construction. The structural analysis must be made in view of these limitations.
Applications and load requirements can be specifically designed and structural analyses prepared according to the specifications of the project.
