Types Of System
The standard types of systems available are listed above, which include CFA cleats (normally used in cavities smaller than 50mm) & Alpha Bracket systems (used on cavities greater than 50mm).
Both systems are available with welded dowels, lips or over bent angles to restraint the stone facade.
