Title: CONSTRUCTION SYSTEM AND FRAMES FOR A GLASS BRICK WALL
Abstract:
A construction system for brick walls comprising: a rectangular frame comprising corresponding head, sill and jamb frame sections that may be interconnected to form the frame within which the bricks may be laid in rows. The frame sections having a channel section including: (i) an inner web portion; (ii) an outer surround engaging portion in parallel spaced relationship to the inner web portion; and (iii) a pair of flanges provided on opposite sides of the channel section and extending from the outer surround engaging portion to the inner web portion to close the channel section. The pair of flanges project from the inner web portion to define a U-shaped brick engaging portion. The pair of flanges are spaced apart a distance sufficient to accommodate the transverse extent of a brick disposed therebetween. An elongated substantially planar stiffener bar has a transverse extent of a dimension less than the transverse extent of a brick so that a brick can be surmounted thereon. A spacer member comprising opposing flanges interconnected by an inner web is provided so that the opposing flanges are able to accommodate the end of a brick and space the opposing surfaces of the brick from the stiffener bar and successive bricks disposed thereon.
