For garage door openings larger than 24’ we recommend our steel header brace for added rigidity.
Brute Force Bracket
Brute Force Brackets are made of ¼ inch tempered steel. They have 16-18” 40 grade rebar anchors welded on 2-3” bottom spurs making our brackets some of the most robust brackets you can buy. Together with our Easy Clip system, they are also the easiest to install. The brackets have 4.5 inch openings to accommodate triple 2x6 posts. They come in 12” and 18” standard sizes, custom sizes available by special order. They have an opening on the base that allows an additional piece of rebar to be inserted for additional pier strength. With our brackets walls can be assembled on the ground and lifted into position like standard framing, no more building on ladders, a huge time and safety advantage. In the end our brackets save time and extend the life of your building by decades over the post in the ground method. Our bracket technology is so superior that it is patented. Comes with four 3.5” lag bolts and two 2” temporary positioning lag bolts.
Door forms include an polypropylene insert along with our standard form. The insert is reversible for either the left or right side. It prevents the concrete pier top from interfering with door installations. Made of resilient PVC. CPS forms are designed to fit on top of an 12” Sonotube. They can be reused if carefully removed or they can be merely used once and disposed of. No more building and staking forms for the pier. They save time and are simple to install with 4 screws (not included).
The Easy Clip System is designed to work with our Brute Force Brackets . They are installed with two small screws and three anchor bolts (included) designed to bind the splashboard to the pier. The tab welded to the Bracket slides into the opening while concrete is wet. It holds the Bracket perfectly positioned and level. It is saves aggravation and tons of time, making our system one of the fastest installs.
