SAO Devices


Current technology and regulations on masonry walls make it possible to attribute improved properties when using assistive devices, such as bed joint reinforcement and retention anchors. However, when these properties are used in the analysis that leads to a specific solution, it is essential to ensure that the implementation matches the terms of the project.

The elements of the GHAS® System are equipped with SAO devices (System of self-control of the operator) that allow full control even after building the wall. Control refers to two key areas related to the mechanical performance of the wall: the amount and correct placement of the elements.

The GHAS® system not only produces high performance results in masonry walls, in strict compliance with current regulations, but is the only system on the market that allows strict control of implementation, so that the performance expected from the walls can be ensured by the technicians, control offices and other actors involved in the construction process.
