WI Beam – Masonry Walls Without Windposts
Wembley Innovation Ltd
Designed to strengthen masonry walls against wind loading, recent testing by CERAM has proven the WI Beam system to perform better than traditional windpost methods, and achieve spans of up to 12 metres in length without unsightly movement joints.
It’s formation within a course of U-shaped blocks enables a homogeneous wall finish and subsequent improvements to the wall’s fire integrity, acoustic performance and air permeability. With significant time and cost savings over windpost methods, the WI Beam can also assist achievement of stricter guidelines for efficiency and reducing the carbon footprint.
