The term angle brackets is a collective term for various angular support anchors. In the field of façade fixing it again corresponds to that of the angle support bracket, i.e. these are special facade masonry support anchors with continuous support angles, which are suspended from two or more firmly welded gusset plates.
In addition, this also includes support angles without welded-on support anchors, which are simply placed on the lateral retaining masonry via window and door lintels.
Also angle brackets are the technically and economically relatively unfavourable support brackets, which are doweled directly to the load-bearing wall (displacement reason) with a few oblong holes for adjustment. With these, the lower angle leg bridges the air and insulation layer and thus creates a relatively large thermal bridge. Now and then this relatively expensive version is still used as a base support.
As a rule, the bricklayer must support the angles above window and door lintels during the bricklaying and hardening of the masonry mortar, e.g. with a squared timber, because the thickness of the angle plate is such that the load-bearing load of the facade wall can only be absorbed when the load triangle is formed after the masonry mortar has hardened.
In addition to the individual support brackets, MODERSOHN very often manufactures such angle support brackets.
