Efficient Installation Process: Seamless Integration and Stability

Another frequently asked question we receive is: How do you install the Hog Leg wall braces?

The ease of installation is a hallmark of the Hog Leg Wall Bracing System. Its straightforward design ensures efficiency without compromising effectiveness. Installation begins by interlocking two different diameter pipes using a pin, establishing a sturdy foundation for the bracing system. Additional pipe segments are seamlessly added to achieve the desired brace length, tailored to the specific dimensions of the masonry structure. Securing the brace to the wall and floor is achieved through intuitive integration with the wall bracket and footer or Deadman. Installing the wall bracket involves a simple process of inserting a T-bar into the head joint and using wedges to secure it to the wall. With the bottom pipe firmly pinned to the wall/floor bracket, the structure gains the stability it requires for long-term durability.
