Quad-Lock works hard to be a leader in developing Insulating Concrete Forms (ICFs) for residential and industrial construction. It is a continuous challenge to provide the industry with the most versatile ICF system on the market. In an ongoing effort to meet this goal, Quad-Lock is pleased to announce the addition of their new adjustable angle bracket.
Quad-Lock’s adjustable angle bracket, similar to the corner bracket, makes it easier to build walls with unusual angles. The bracket is extremely versatile and accommodates all angles. To use, it is simply placed on the outside of an irregular corner on each course. The addition of the new angle bracket makes constructing bays and complicated house designs with the Quad-Lock system quick and easy.
The adjustable angle bracket consists of two straight sections of 22-gauge steel with holes to fit over the knobs of the panels. The sections are joined at their ends with a rivet. The rivet enables the bracket to pivot, which allows it to form any desired angle.
Quad-Lock President, Hubert Kustermann Sr. and his son Hubert Max Kustermann, CEO, worked closely with builders to develop an easy-to-use solution for creating custom angles. “We needed something to form irregular angles and we didn’t want to make a special panel,” he explained, “We also wanted to keep our system simple. This angle bracket is the perfect solution because it works seamlessly with our standard panels, ties and variable wall widths.”
Quad-Lock’s philosophy of having a minimum number of components assures simplicity in construction and an abundance of supply. With the addition of the adjustable angle bracket, the Quad-Lock Building System offers possibilities that are virtually limitless.
