Stub brackets are used to provide a stable fixing area for canopy arms from the steelwork in the main structure. They can be adapted to suit any length and any type of internal steel, I beams, Universal channels, box section beams etc. The stub is bolted to the internal steel and the face plate which receives the canopy arm either left flush with the external materials face or in a position where facing materials can cover the plate. Once the contractor has finished the external facing materials the canopy arms are simply bolted to the projecting fixings. This method of fixing means that limited work to the facing materials are required (cutting, shaping etc) and that projecting arms are not left for the contractor to work round whilst doing external works. This is particularly important for curtain walling and brick face finishes where operatives are in constant danger from projecting steel arms whilst trying to work round them.
