Ancon Masonry Reinforcement, otherwise known as Bed Joint-Reinforcement, improves the structural performance of masonry walls by providing additional resistance to lateral loads e.g. wind. It also reduces the risk of cracking either at stress concentrations around openings or as a result of movement, in accordance with BS5628-3: 2005.
In walls that have door and window openings, bed joint reinforcement can reduce the frequency of control joints. Reinforcement should be provided in the first and second courses above and below all openings and should extend no less than 600mm either side of the opening.
