The Amvic Brick Ledge Reinforcer is an engineered ICF brick ledge reinforcement system that is designed to replace conventional rebar in the Amvic ICF brick ledge forms. It is a single pre-assembled, 4ft (1.2m) long deformed welded wire reinforcement piece that is placed directly into Amvic’s brick ledge. Conventional brick ledge forms must be reinforced with a line of horizontal rebar and stirrups between the horizontal bars in both the ledge and the wall area of the brick ledge form.
The Amvic Brick Ledge Reinforcer eliminates the horizontal rebar and stirrups in the ledge area allowing the Reinforcer to be easily placed into the form in one step; providing cost savings of up to 30% when factoring in materials and labor with pre-bent or field fabricated rebar reinforcement.
The Reinforcer is compatible with Amvic’s Standard R22 ICF brick ledge forms in both 6” and 8”, the Amvic R30 Plus 6” and the fabricated brick ledge extension. Once placed in the ICF form, the Amvic Reinforcer does not need to be butted, lapped or tied to each other.
The Amvic Brick Ledge Extension is designed to support masonry veneer exterior finishes where using a speciality brick ledge ICF block is not available. It is compatible with Amvic’s R22 and R30 blocks in all core sizes and can be installed at any height, angle and side of an ICF wall. The Brick Ledge Extension comes fully dismantled from the factory in compact packaging to save space and cost during shipping. Each kit is composed from two parts, one ledge and either 12 (for R30 ICF) or 16 (for R22 ICF) inserts.
Part 1 (ledge) – Length 8’ (2438mm) x Width 5” (127mm) x Height 13.5” (343mm)
Part 2 (insert) – 9.5” (241mm) x 4.5” (114mm) and 1.5” (38mm) thick
The Brick Ledge Fastening Kit is composed from 1000 assembled fasteners (500 fasteners with 4” (102mm) screws and 500 fasteners with 6” (152mm) screws). These fasteners provide superior mechanical fastening and can be used for assembling and attaching the Brick Ledge Extensions and for general EPS board attachment.
The screws are compatible with various substrates such as dimensional lumber, sheathing boards and ICF polypropylene webs and can be installed in all weather conditions. One kit is sufficient for 248 linear feet (75.6m) or 31 panels for the R22 Brick Ledge Extension or 328 linear feet (100m) or 41 panels for the R30 Brick Ledge Extension.
